Our family moved to another state and just bought a house. We're on a budget so decor is slow. I've been scouring pinterest and google for ideas.
I found a super blurry photo on google and fell in love. Had to be creative because of how blurry it was being able to figure out what it was made from. But
I finally finished and am so HAPPY with how it turned out.

I used construction paper for the P, and had my son donate a few cars to the cause. I mostly used elmers glue on this one and a tiny bit of hot glue for the cars.

The L is all crayons and hot glue. I lined these up on a ruler but discovered that apparently the wrappers aren't in the same place on each crayon so they look more crooked than they are. On the wall though it's not noticeable.

A stumped me due to the inspo photo being so blurry. A friend suggested puzzle peices. I used some math to figure out where I wanted the edges to be. Drew in pencil, and then filled in the majority with peices of a 100 peice dollar store puzzle. then filled in gaps with peices from a colorful 500 peice dollar store puzzle. I did use mostly edge peices around the edges. Wink

Lastly for L it's pom poms and pipe cleaners from my stash.

And here's my inspo photo:

which came from google.

Hope you like!

not super active, but still crafting and post lots on facebook.
