Hi Everyone!***Welcome to The Creative Crate*** I enjoy doing crafts, so this blog is to share some craft projects I've made, and some I've stumbled across online for all you crazy crafters out there who enjoy crafting on a budget like me. If you have any questions, ideas, or tips you would like to share..... please e-mail meat(stacie4 at q dot com) So... please... feel free to comment and browse as much as you'd like! EnJoy!
These are made out of 1/4" plywood. I just drew( what I thought looked like a flower), and cut them out. The leaves were scrap wood that was leftover from cutting out the flowers. The stems could be made out of wood lath, or a sturdy yard stick (Home Depot has good ones for cheap) that you could sand down so you can't see the measurements. Then paint.
My daughter, who is turning into a little CraFter herself, had fun helping me with the painting.
Once they were done drying, I sanded the tops, and the edges down.
Then, I wiped stain around all the edges to give it that older look.
Then I used wood glue to hold the pieces together.
I think they turned out really cute! It thought would be really cute to take my kiddos pictures with them for a fun spring look!
