My handmade holidays is going very chaotic this year. I have about a million projects up in the air, so you'll probably get a ton of blog posts in a row with all the finishes. Everything is one or two steps from being done.
I did manage to finish something today though. Yay!
I found the idea for an Art Gallery from a blog called Serving Pink Lemonade. Her art gallery is very beautifully done. Much more stylish than mine. But I think I created a pretty good spin on the original.
I took a plaque and painted it. I also painted two clothespins. Then I printed out Logan's favourite cartoon character and the words "Art Gallery" and mod podged them onto the plaque.
I hammered some tiny nails into the back to hold some ribbon in place. I'm not sure how the original was hung, but I thought the ribbon was a nice touch.
I used my hotglue gun to fasten the clothespins on the front.
Now Logan will have a cool place to hang all his artwork! You use the clothespins to hold up various masterpiece works of art.
I made two more after this one for my little cousins out in Vancouver. They are a very artistic bunch as well.
For the Thomas one, I mod podged a fabric Thomas The Train cutout onto the front. The Art Gallery is printed off the computer.
For the little girl one I cut everything out from a very pretty roll of wrapping paper.
(Note: The mod podge is still drying on both of these. I needed to take photos, write this blog and get them back into hiding before I went to pick Logan up from school. Wouldn't want to ruin his surprise!)
