We glued pom poms to the top of the hot glue gun drippings. We have trees!

Old paint brush man!

Pickle jar remakes!

We added wire tails and cardboard ears.


Then we painted the bottles and added rocks for paws.

Pop top bracelets

Katherine's bracelet.
We added charms from an old broken bracelet.

We have know idea who Kevin Arnold is but some one loves him very much! I got the entire bag of pins at the Thrift store for only .90 cents. We repurposed them into artsy pins.



Floor prints! We traced around the canvas that was on the plastic on the floor. 
Then filled the traced image with paint.

Then we put the canvas down on top of the paint.

Next will pulled the print (canvas).

There was enough paint left to do 4 ghost prints, which we used to make more books!
