This Christmas tutorial shows you how to hack a brownie cooking tray into a Christmas Wagon
What you need
Brownie Pan Craft Glue
Magnetic Tins (JOT) X 2 Packs
Hot Glue Gun
Paint: Scarlet & Chalkboard Black
Foam Brush/Sm. Paint Brush
To avoid using several coats of paint, use a metal primer spray first, then either paint or spray paint brownie pan.
Hot Glue lids to containers. Paint with Black Chalkboard paint: Sides and the bottom of the tin. You can also paint the little rim part on top of tin. Use 2 coats, let dry between coats.
Cut (4) 2-inch circles and (4) 1 ½ -inch circles from Red Cardstock. (Tip: If you don’t have Circle Punches, use a stencil or trace from a lid to get the circle.)
Using Craft Glue, glue the 2-inch circles on top of the clear acetate window, let dry. On the bottom of tin, center the 1 ½-inch circles and glue in place, let dry.
WAGON & WHEELS ASSEMBLY
To avoid the wheels from bowing in, using a little Hot Glue on top of wheels, attach the wheels (with the large 2-inch circles to the inside) just under the rim of the brownie pan. They should be straight. DO NOT attach the wheels to the side of the brownie pan or they will be bowed in.
SPATULA HANDLE ASSEMBLY (D.T. ROPE OPTIONAL)
Hot Glue and wrap rope around the Spatula handle (optional). You can use twine, tag, or a bow, as well. (Tip: The rope made the handle heavy and it wouldn’t stick well to the underside of the pan.)
Hot Glue and use E6000 Glue to Spatula and attach to bottom of pan centered on edge.
Using a Floral Foam rectangle, cut in half and lay both pieces into wagon.
Embellish with Floral Picks (These are from Hobby Lobby).
Chalkable Chips (White or Black)
Silk Screen Transfers: Christmas Minis & Christmas Mini Tags
Paste Used: Shimmer Spruce, Candy Apple, Camel
