April Showers Post by Guest Blogger, Talented Terrace Girls

Hi Ya’ll!!!!

I’m JeNae from Talented Terrace Girls, and I’m so happy to be showing
ya’ll a fun spring project courtesy of Wood Creations.

What a fantastic little shop! I can literally stand in their store for 30 minutes
 trying to decide what projects I want to take home. It’s so much fun!

So, with spring finally here, I wanted to make something fun & bright.
 That’s where this craft is going to take us!


Doesn’t that phrase just say “Spring”?

Here’s a Before & After…so you can kind of see where this project is going:


Here’s how I made mine!

First I painted all my wood pieces.


I already had some fun spring paint colors at home, but guess what??? If I didn’t,
 Wood Creations has got a great selection of paints to go with any of their projects.
I decided that I wanted to pick-up and use some fun scrapbook paper from the store.
And bonus…they’re double-sided!

When my wood pieces were dried, I took the grass, flowers & umbrella,
flipped them over, and traced their shape onto the fun paper.
I then used Mod-Podge to glue them onto the wood-super simple!


As I was going through this project, I wanted to add a little somethin’-somethin’ to it.
Then I thought that it would be fun to add some grass;
 because flowers and grass can readily be found in my garden.

I simply cut out a square of paper, cut some fringe, and then glued it around the dowel:


I then put everything together:


And thought that it needed something else….Raindrops!
So I grabbed some blue paper, and cut out some
raindrops to glue on top of the umbrella.


And that’s that…I’ve got a wonderful, Springy, decoration for our home!


I hope ya’ll take the chance & hop on over to our little blog!
Between the eight of us girls, we’ve got something for everyone.
