Weeks before Husband's birthday, I knew I wanted to do something special for him. Special as in "some sort of cutesy artsy-fartsy craft" that C could help with that he could hang on his office wall. I mean, isn't that what all Dads look forward to? An office full of their kid's arts and crafts? I mean, if you were to walk into my Dad's office you would be met with an over-abundance of soup-can meets modge podge pencil cups and handmade paperweights.
It's kind of like a right of passage into Fatherhood, is it not?
So, I turned to Pinterest. You can never go wrong with Pinterest. Here's the pin that started it all:
- 1 8.5x11" frame - I purchased mine from Walmart for $3.99
- 2 Card stock in desired colors - You'll need at least 2 8.5x11" sheets for the background and body of the owl. I purchased a few extra just in case and also scooped up a pack of multi-colored 3x5" card stock for the owls.. parts (eyes, beak, legs, etc!).
- 1 glue stick
- 1 small bottle of paint (I used acrylic because I had some on-hand, but i'm sure you could substitute something safe(r) like washable kid paint!)
- scissors, glue dots and a marker.
