Well, I said we were going to make this yesterday and by golly, we did 🙂
I was feeling rough yesterday. A bit overwhelmed with another move coming up, maybe, I dunno. People were coming over to assess our household goods for the moving company. You know how it is when someone’s coming over to visit every single room in your house? Lots of those moments with a military move.
We grabbed a bin and went out back to pick some twigs for our heart. Then we got busy painting them. I just pulled out all the craft paints we have. Many of them were low and since we cannot move with liquids, it was an awesome way to use them up! We mixed more colors and it was just really fun and relaxing all the way around.
I tell ya what, having art shirts and newspapers in my art hutch at all times makes projects like this so much more likely to happen!
I used 24 gauge wire and just rigged it the best I could. Then I put a dob of hot glue on the back of each spot where I’d wrapped the wire around each twig, just to make sure it holds and doesn’t get shifty. I love it! The kids are proud of it too 🙂
