I wish I could create all the things I want to create! Or at least get them all done in a timely manner!!
This is one of my favorite things I've made stuff out of. Have you seen this before:
The above is an A - an Alabama A for those of you who may not be fans of the University of Alabama! I actually made about five of these at once - a few to give away and two to keep. This one is usually in our living room - the only Alabama stuff in there. The other one is in Jason's office, with all the rest of the Bama stuff.
This rocket was on the wall in Cole's last room at our previous home. He had a whole Buzz Lightyear thing going on. He wanted one for his door, which I tried to make, but made it too big - so it wouldn't fit on the door! We topped it off with this:
I cut out lots of stars, too and painted them to match - they were on the ceiling and in a few places on the wall, around his room.
I think these are my second favorite creations (the Alabama A being the first). I cut out tons of triangles - long and skinny - painted them and covered them with glitter. This was the mantel at our last home (the same home with the rocket on the wall). I did a few circles, as well, just to have a different shape. Here's a close up:
Orange, black and silver - all gathered together with a purple feather boa - great Halloween colors, right?
Now this is what I'd like to make next:
I'd like to do some W's for my sister-in-laws wedding in October. They colors are blue and silver, so I thought it would be pretty to do W's for them and cover them in glitter. And I'd like to cut out a large C and paint it red for Cole's room. And I'd love to make a large T to hang on the front door - but I'd have to paint it and seal it somehow to protect it from the weather!
Okay - that's enough or I'll be running to Lowe's to get another sheet! Oh, and a tip for you - if you want to make anything out of this stuff - a friend (who I originally got this idea from) used a heated knife of some sort and it cut super easy. Her edges were super smooth. I didn't have one, so I used an X-acto knife. I made a mess - but it worked for me!
