Wood You Like to Craft...March 2012 Projects!!!

Here's a quick re-cap of my WYLTC post! And a quick heads up, I'm hosting next month and the theme will be "April Showers".
Hehe! Ignore that it's not centered on the door, I guess I need to go get a wreath hanger!
I'm sharing an umbrella for my front door {with all the rain we've had lately I may need an ark!} If you're interested, the kits will be available from my shop starting Monday, otherwise,
get your projects going now so you can share them at the linky party...enjoy!

So, funny enough, this wasn't my original plan. I wanted to do classic silhouette cutouts of my girls on these curvy little frames but I ran into a few problems.
 1-- I couldn't get them to sit still long enough to trace a descent image. 2-- once I got it small enough to fit inside the frame I was afraid I'd loose the detail of the image to the saw blade, and 3--I'd already cut the frame out so enlarging it wasn't an option.
So what to do...cut  a carrot instead! But don't you just love it?

I cut the blue part of the frame from 3/4 inch MDF and the insert from bead board. I used the skill saw to cut both. And the carrot is 1/4 inch MDF.
{Completely off track but as I was finishing this piece it kind of reminded me of the very first project we ever did here on WYLTC? And then I realized that that was ONE YEAR ago!!! Holy cow--Happy Birthday WYLTC!!! We're officially one!}

My little carrot needed a buddy to fill up the shelf and what goes better with carrots than bunnies?

I was obsessed with the idea of a big, fluffy bunny tail. So the idea of a silhouette was perfect because what do you really see? That big, fluffy bunny's tail!
She too is cut from 3/4 inch MDF and then mounted onto a chunk of 2x4.
The tail is a tan tulle, scrapbook paper on the 2x4 and a sharpie to apply the lettering.

The whole thing makes me very "HOPPY".
Hooray for ideas that go astray!!!

Happy Crafting.
