I've been on a project kick lately! I think it must be the ol' "nesting" setting in. Here is where it all started:
Stripes on the boy's walls
Then I got a hankerin' to make a scarecrow or two.
Here's a pic of the completed happy pair.
Ethan had the greatest time with this project.
I went cheap and stuffed 'em with newspaper and then used raffia to make it look like it was stuffed with hay!
Kate got to actually touch scissors (since she cut her hair back in May) and was given the duty to cut the raffia.
We used floral foam stuff to anchor in the heads.
This is where they sit now welcoming all who stop by with a friendly smile!
(although they scare the geebers out of me every time I open the door to go outside!!)
Yes, it continued!
I was oohing and ahhhing over all the artsy sites on the Internet one day. After following link after link, I found these beauties! Sooo exciting! I have always loved the hurricanes at Pottery Barn and other such wonderful stores, but never (even for a moment) thought about actually forking over the $60 or so for one! YIKES! These little babies were $2!!
FLARED VASE - $$$$$$$ STORE!
TAPER CANDLE HOLDER - $$$$$$ STORE!
A LITTLE BIT OF THIS:
We'll have to see what strikes me next!
