Silver Duct Tape 3D Cross Craft for Sunday School

Silver Tape 3D Cross Bible Craft for Kids

What you will need:

Craft Foamamazon 2

Aluminum Foil Tapeamazon 3

Utensils to engrave the tape such as a ballpoint pen, straws, the end of a paintbrush, and the tines of a fork

Black Acrylic Paint

Paper Towels

Gems

 

How to Make Silver Duct Tape 3D Cross:

Silver Duct Tape 3d Cross Craft from www.daniellesplace.com

1. Cover the top of the fun foam cross with the duct tape, pressing it down and smoothing it out. (You can cut cross shapes from pieces of fun foam if you don't have a precut one.)

2. Press your utensils down into the tape to make shapes and designs.

3. When you are done with your design paint the entire surface of the cross with black acrylic paint. Let it dry for a few minutes, but not completely. Wipe the paint off the surface of the tape with a folded, damp paper towel. Press lightly so that you don't remove all the paint. You want the paint to remain in the indented areas so that the design shows up better. You do not have to add the black paint. (The cross on the right was done without the paint. The design is harder to see but still effective.)

4. Once the paint has dried thoroughly, you can wipe the surface again to make it shiny.
