Mother's Day Gifts

Here are a couple of projects Evan helped me work on for his grandmothers for Mother's Day.  For my mom he helped me paint a birdhouse that he picked out from Michael's.  He is quite the good painter.  :)  When the paint was dry I cut the shapes out on my Cricut and decoupage'd them on to the sides of the birdhoue.  Here's what we got...

Next we made letters for Evan's other grandmother, whom he calls MiMi.  The letters we found at Michael's came with a base that held up to 4 letters, so it worked out perfectly!  I wish I had had matching purple paint to paint the base, but I still think it turned out pretty cute.  We traced the letters onto paper, cut out the shapes, Mod Podge'd them on, then cut out long strips to wrap around the outside and inside edges.  Super easy!  Gotta love Mod Podge!

Mod Podge

I think I'm addicted to decoupage.  Here is my latest project.  It's just a wooden serving tray from Michael's, and I painted it white and Mod Podge'd cute paper onto the tray part.  Very easy, very fast, and cute!  It could be done in sooooo many different ways, with any colors or paper.  Love it!
