Diy giant gold wishbone
The wishbone trend is still going strong so why not make a giant wishbone this Fall?
Inspired by the large ceramic wall art wishbones featured in the November 2014 issue of Country Living magazine:
Hard to tell the scale here but these wishbones measure 15″ tall and are available in a variety of colors for $98.
The inspiration wishbones are beautiful with all their curves in keeping with what a true wishbone looks like, unlike my diy version which is flat.
Flat but fun and golden too!
My wishbone measures about 20″h x 14″w.
How to make a giant wishbone:
– 1/2″ mdf
– pencil & ruler
– jig saw
– palm sander
– paint & primer
Step 1: Sketch the wishbone directly onto 1/2″ mdf. I used a smaller sketch, made a graph and transferred the design to the larger size. Try free clip art as a starting point.
Step 2: Cut out the wishbone using a jigsaw then sand the edges smooth.
Step 3: Prime, sand and paint.
