This post has been a LONG time in the making. Last fall, my dad cut down and gave me some boards from the old dock he ripped up. I had grand ideas for making those cute two-sided holiday signs. (Similar to these, except I’d planned on doing two signs… a Jack-O-Lantern/Scarecrow, and a Santa/Snowman.)
And they sat in dirty pile in my craft room…. and sat… and sat.
Then, this summer, Harlow and I dug them out and gave them a good scrubbing. (She’s an awesome helper!)
After all that awesome, musical hard work, back in the basement they went. Until after I quit my job in August. Then, a few weeks ago, I dug them BACK out, and made the basic shapes.
Now, only one measly month later, I’m finally staining and painting them!
I’m still working on the snowman/Santa one, but the jack-o-lantern/scarecrow one is done! I really love how the scarecrow turned out… I might work more on the jack-o-lantern, but I have PLENTY of time before next Halloween. He’s just a little bland. I’ll post the snowman/Santa when I get it finished. To be perfectly honest, I’m not confident in my artist skillz when it comes to making Santa’s face. Wish me luck!
