Wooden Gingerbread Man Shelf Sitter
Acrylic Paints: brown, white, pink and black + paint brush
Paper pattern, scissors and a pencil
Clear Acrylic Sealer
Pattern: We hand drew out a gingerbread man shape onto paper and cut it out to use as our pattern. Ours measures 5 1/2" tall by 4" wide by 1" thick. You can make yours any size that you would like.
We had the guys cut out 12 of these from pine wood that measured 1" thick and then sanded them smooth. We then base coated them with the acrylic brown paint, left it dry for 30 minutes and gave them a second coat. You can decorate yours as fancy as you would like but we kept ours plain & simple. We added some white paint trim around each ankle and wrist...3 white painted on buttons down his chest. We used pink paint for his cheeks and black paint for his eyes and mouth. We left them dry and then sprayed them with clear acrylic sealer that comes in a can. You will want to let them dry one final time for about 10 to 12 hours.
