First, YEAH!!! The hubby and the good camera made it back home so here are a few pics of the Halloween Board I posted on Friday. The tutorial is a few posts down. Again this was a super fast and easy project and it looks awesome on my mantle. Go ahead and makeone for yourself-you're going to love it too!
This little guy came about from a dinner joke. You know when your kids get to the age they find their sense of humor and everything can be made into a joke? And everything is made into a joke, 99% of which are NOT funny...we are there, again.
We were eating dinner Saturday night getting our nightly dose of humor when my 6 yr old shared this one:
Owl see you soon!
Her delivery was so great I had to find a way to remember it. I re-worded her joke just a bit and then put it on canvas.
I painted the background and tree with spray paint! (I made a stencil for my tree) The lettering I did with stickers, sealed it with a layer or two of Modge Podge, and then crafted my little owl friend from felt. Needless to say, my 6 yr old is so proud!
And here they are together, keeping an eye on us from up on the mantle. So much Halloween fun in one spot.
Did I mention it was a good weekend?
And still one more completed project to share.
Look for it tomorrow...here's a heads up. I jumped on the subway art trend wagon, family syle!
