Elro is 9 months old so we paint with our hands every Sunday. Sunday is my official craft day — as in I definitely will be making something— and I like the idea of her creating things, too.
But what do you do with all the art? I’m going to go ahead and guess that my father’s favorite gift from me was Elro’s first painting. He framed it. It has grass in it because we paint outside but because he loves her, it meant something to him.
So making things with her artwork will be awesome for family members, but I also like reminders throughout the house of what is currently working in my life. This bitty vase reminds me of our Sunday in the garden.
1. I cut the artwork into triangles with a variety of sizes. I cleaned a spice jar, but you could also use any glass bottle. 2. I used Mod Podge to adhere the triangles to the jar. 3. I filled up all the space. 4. I painted the jar with Mod Podge and let dry.
I really dug the way it looked when it dried. You can see our finger prints!
The only thing I didn’t like was the glass at the top (where the ridges are on a spice container) so I braided some twine and used a glue gun to add it to the very top of the jar. I dig it!
