Sorry for such a late post today! My day was interrupted by an unexpected trip to town, but better late than never!
Johnny's version of Annie's knight.
Lizzy's version of Annie's princess.
The kids have a new-found love for painting, after watching their older sisters paint the sets that we have available in our shop.
Lizzy painting Annie's peg-legged pirate.
Even Donna got in on the fun! Big brother Stephen routered stick figures of him and Donna holding hands on a board and gave it to her to paint. :)
(Haha! Pigtail FAIL! But still cute anyway. ;)
The girls finishing up painting the sets.
So, to make these, you need to start with good pictures of the characters you want to recreate. They need to be full sized and fairly simple. The kids glean them from books occasionally, but most often raid the artistic abilities of their older siblings. ;)
Cut out your figure using a scroll or jigsaw. Either hand or electric works, but obviously the electric is much faster. This is always 14yr. Michael's job, because he's very good at it!
(You can see more photos of Annie's people at their listings in the Funny Farm Toy Barn)
Happy Handmade Holiday! Have fun crafting. :)
