I've always been a doodler.  I found this while cleaning out my attic the other day:

I did that in college.

Those are so cool! At first i thought it was rudolf but its one of the others. You've drawn the reindeer so well. Just a random thought but any idea on how you could stick them to a wall without the hooks?
I'm not sure . . . I meant for them to hang in a big tree in a yard, but I guess they could be hung on a wall with one of those picture frame hangers (with the teeth), or with a tab, or even with that double stick foam tape (the ornaments are made out of thin plywood, which is pretty light).

Anyway, I finished the star ones I intended for my Mom!
I cut them out and painted three of them.  My husband painted one.

23  Giant Ornaments (complete w/ photos) in Winter Holidays by amboo213 on: November 22, 2006 08:06:48 AM
Last year I had some scraps of plywood from a home improvement project, and I decided to make giant Christmas Ornaments, which I'd planned to hang in my front yard tree.  However, as I was in school at the time, I only had time to make two, so I gave them as gifts to my two professors. 

How I made them:
For the round ornament I traced the rim of a bowl on a piece of wood and free-handed a top, then cut it out with a jigsaw.
I free-handed the reindeer, but since I couldn't get the jigsaw to cut such small details, I just cut around the edge.
Then I painted and sprayed with clear acryllic, and finally put a little eye-hook in the top to hang them.

24  Guard Kitty (painted rock) Images work in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects by amboo213 on: November 20, 2006 08:48:35 AM
I've been checking out Craftster for months.  Today I saw this post by black.apple, and it reminded me of a project I did for my yard.  I "see" kitties in all round rocks, so I made one for my yard.  So, I decided to join and post my kitty rock too, which guards my front yard tree.  
Painted rocks are good for adding color to a dry yard if you're a poor gardner like me.  However, you really must spray a few coats of a good clear acryllic over your painting or else the weather will make the paint fade or wash away.
