It has been a while since I have been able to craft and boy have I missed it.
To say I love Halloween would be an under statement. I love the cute decor, coming up with fun costumes for the kiddos and of course my annual multi family Halloween party.
Well, Friday night my hubby went on a camp out with our church and I decided I was long over due for some me time. I had meant to have him cut me some wood before he left but never got a pattern drawn for him. I was disappointed, but determined.
I went out to my scrap wood pile and found this old drawer front
Have you seen all the cute little owl’s out there in blog land? I decided I wanted to make an owl to go with my decor. After I painted the wood black I got out some paper and went to town.
Each layer of paper is scalloped and rolled up slightly for a 3-D effect. The eyes have pop-up on them as well.
Now all I need is a cute Halloween table runner to put everything on.
It felt really good to finally create something for myself again. I hope to be better at finding some more me time.
It makes for a happier home all the way around! 🙂
