Upcycled Wooden Heart Wall Decoration

I made this project for a Christmas project. I got the original heart shape from the thrift store for $1.99.

Next, I sanded it down.

Then, I painted it red.

Using some scrap cardboard and some scrapbook paper, I cut out the same heart shape and glued them together with a glue stick. (Using liquid glue can make the paper wrinkle up when it dries).

 I attached it to the back of the wooden heart.

 Here is the final product.

 It can just be a decoration for the wall or you can also use it for wine cork storage.

Simple Sewing Projects

Here are some sewing projects I've been working on recently. Yes, I decided to pull out the old sewing machine and dust it off.

Bean Bags. You can buy the filling below from Amazon.

Next, I made a pillow for Snugglepuppy and a mini one for his teddy bear.

Last, I made a 10-minute table runner. Admittedly, it took longer than 10 minutes. Some of that was due to technical difficulties, so I think if I make anymore it will be much faster. Here's the video:

Cardboard Delivery Truck

The last few weeks, we've been studying transportation. Here is a truck the kids decorated and have been driving around the room. I love how the painting turned out with the bright colors. I had them paint the tires separately and then attached them with pipe cleaners so they really turn. I also cut out the steering wheel from cardboard and attached it with another piece of cardboard. They really have been having a lot of fun driving it around.

Here are some of the books we have been reading as well to support our topic.

Another Smiley Face Lunch

Here is the smiley face I made for Snugglepuppy the other day as he now won't eat much of anything unless it looks like some kind of shape. I would have preferred peanut butter on the bread so we would have some protein, but he refused. The star is cheese. Not the healthiest lunch ever, but it gets him to try a variety of foods.
