so my boy friends niece and nephew all got new bedrooms for christmas. even though thats what they got like two years ago. and were broke so everyone got hand made door signs.
i got the wooden signs from the dollar store, i sanded them and painted them a base of white.
mackenzie (6) loves anything princess so she got this.
i had the blue paper from the dollar store a few months ago and cinderella came from a piece of paper i found or joanns. i had the letters her full name didnt fit so she got her knick name. and glitter lots of glitter. unfortunetly when i sealed them (spray acrylic in satin) the wind took them away and under a tree (they were only out there a few hours) and it got kinda warped and the paper ripped a bit. she didnt seam to mind.
the youngest one joey (4) likes tools and i couldnt reallt find anything that was cool for that he also likes pirates. now pirates i can do. i took a white piece of paper and soaked it in some tea to age it. and then dried it between some paper towels. boys dont understand arts/crafts and it almost got thrown away which is why it got ripped but i saved it and put some brown ink around the sides
i found the compass at joanns for 50 cents (!) and just flued it on. he also loved his.
i didint get any photos of the third one which was really simple cory (11) loves the phantoms (a local hockey team and i just printed out their logo and on the other side i painted his jersey number (29) for his hockey team (the devils) in red and gave it horns and a tail and the words KEEP OUT on the other side. hes at that age where playing with his younger sibs isnt cool. i can relate.
