4. Print out the Clothes Pattern. Cut the jeans pattern from denim material and the shirt pattern from white stretchy material. Make sure you put the top of the shirt pattern on a fold.

5. Write "Jesus Washes My Sins Away" across the front of the shirt.

6. Glue the jeans onto the figure. Insert the figure head through the whole of the shirt and then glue the shirt on underneath the arms and the sides of the shirt.

7. Drill small holes around the top of the head.

8. Cut the floral wire into 6" lengths. Insert them into the holes and secure them to the head. Wind the wire around a pencil to make the hair curly.

9. Glue the 12" wooden dowel to the back of the head just above the 3 1/2" craft stick.

10. Clip on two clothes pins on each side of the head to the wooden dowel and the shirt.

11. Tie a piece of jute string to each end of the wooden dowel so you can hang up the wall hanging. Use hot melt glue to secure the string to the dowel. Cut 3 - 6" x 1/2" lengths of scrap material and tie one to each end of the dowel where the jute string is tied and one to the center of the jute string where the string will be hung to the wall.

6. Now glue a hook on the back. We used a paper clip opened slightly and glued it on with a glue gun.

Comments about this Craft:

I printed the saying for the Craft Stick Wall Hanging. I had a package of colored craft sticks, so we used those for the house outline. We glued the printout to construction paper, then cut around the shape after the sticks were adhered. I had some red yarn on hand, so we taped a hanging loop to the back with scotch tape.
