Crafty Pair

I have been wanting to try this wreath that I pinned around Christmas. I wanted to use it the rest of the year, not just at Christmastime, so I decided to use black and white scrapbook paper, found at Amazon. It was an easy project.

I simply cut out scraps of paper and mod podged them to the clothespins. Then I used one of my kids' bowls to draw a circle, then cut out the circle and cut another circle opening in the middle.



Then I simply attached the finished pins to the cardboard circle...






Another project I have wanted to try is a photo block, so I went and bought a 2x6 piece of wood for a little over $4 and had my husband cut into squares, which are really 5 1/2" x 5 1/2", because a 2x6 really isn't 6".  I sanded the block, then mod podged a piece of the same scrapbook paper and a photo of my kiddos...I painted strokes down (vertically) then across (horizontally) to give it a textured look.  A piece of twine finished it off.  

I love them...can't wait to make these for gifts. I'm going to try a paint technique with them next.  I'll be sure to share.  :-)


And I paired it with my wreath...love 'em!

Love it! How did I not see this post before?? I have something like this pinned too and have been meaning to make it, but need to get more clothespins first! We need to go back to that thrift store soon (I can't remember what it was called), b/c I got a bunch of those little clothespins there and I love them! Thanks for sharing at the party!
