I would like to say first, that I am not posting an original idea. I am merely posting my completion of a project that I found on another blog. I am always on the scout for some really cool projects for no other reason than to put them up in my own home. This particular item is also keepsake in nature and is already proudly hanging on my wall. I have two kiddos, I made two. Look:
Here lets get closer…
Do you see how the trunk is their hands?! I just loved this! My trunks look a little splotchy in the pictures because I couldn’t wait for the Modge Podge to dry before I hung them! They look much better now, it dries clear, but I am way too friggin’ tired to re-snap so you will just have to trust me. I love the two pictures of my boys and will never take them off the wall. They were taken when each boy was 9 months old. My older is the one on the left and the baby is on the right and he is actually playing with big brother’s glove. Awww…
Now to give credit where it is due. The blog I got this idea, and awesome tutorial from is At Second Street and it is very well done by Kalleen. She is incredibly crafty in a very bright way. Everything makes sense and her tutorials are wonderful! Here, take a look: http://atsecondstreet.blogspot.com/2010/03/mod-podged-hand-trees.html
I am actually lined up with a half dozen unfinished projects right now but the second I am cleared for takeoff I am going to jump head first into this one http://atsecondstreet.blogspot.com/2010/03/etched-window-tutorial.html
Update on a previous completed craft? OK. I finally found a home to hang my giant C. It looked a little plain so I jazzed it up with old fake flowers I found in my craft bin in the basement. It’s not super fabulous but it is home.
I am straight off to bed. Hopefully my monsters are feeling way better in the morning and I will actually take all my soft parts to battle in a Pilates class in the morning.
Wish me luck!
