October Craft Night (forgot to post)

Wood is my thing. I love making stuff out of it and painting it and cutting it up. Pretty much anything wood and I am in!!  These are just another thing that you can do with all the scrap wood you have laying around. These little cuties range for. About 3" high to about 6 or 7" high. They are just left over 2x4's from another project. We have painted them using  acrylic paints (50 cents each at the craft store) and decorated them using ribbon and tulle and coiled up wire. The stems are just 5/8" dowels cut to be about 3" long and glued in a hole that we made with a drill. Easy least and a fun way to decorate for the fall. Hint... If you leave one side a plain pumpkin and the other with Jack-o-lantern faces you can use them September through Thanksgiving to decorate. Love long term holiday decorating. 

November Craft Night

With just a couple of fun items you too can have some awesome holiday decorations. Check out the list of materials below and the pictures. 

Shadow box materials:
Shadow box of desired size
Scrap booking paper cut to size of frame back
Small ornaments or decorations
Paper craft stickers

Use your creativity and any materials that  you can find to create a piece that is unique to you. Remember to make it three dimensional by adding things to the background and the foreground. Most importantly...have fun!!

When we were done with the shadow boxes we had a bit more time and oodles more materials. So with a couple pieces of scrap wood we created these beauties...

And the overall shots...
