This is not turning into a craft blog. I sweartodog! It's still a "zomg toddlers be nuts/zomg I'm turning into a cat lady/zomg the Real Housewives did WHA WHAAAT?!?" blog. I promise. But yeah, there's also going to be some craftiness. Unless my crafting venture crashes and burns like some of my other short-lived hobbies (::cough cough running::) (::cough cough piano lessons::) have been known to do.
In today's edition of Crafts On A Blog Not About Crafting, Anderbug and I made my mom a birthday present. And it turned out SO stinking cute that I requested he help me make another for our house. He obliged. This kid likes paint. And glue. And anything else that involves his mother requesting he get himself messy. (Vivi? Not so much into messy hands. She opted out.)
The project....fall hands.
Inspired by the Pinterest "Christmas tree of hands" project you can't throw a rock without hitting.
Canvas, fall colored paints, spongey paint brush for applying paint to hands and painting tree trunk. And a toothpick to paint on the year, si'l vous plait.
I thought the canvas was needing a little something to look complete, so when the paint was nice and dry, I hot glued hemp cord around the sides. I love how it gave it a rustic finishing touch.
So happy, happy birthday to my lovely mama! You're an inspiration to me every single day. We love you forever and ever!
