Painted Wood Flag Sign

I’ve wanted a folk-art-inspired wood flag sign for some time now, but never seemed to find time to make one.  Well, today I decided to get on with it.  After all, I had everything I needed – the wood, stain, paints, and even the stars stencil. I’ve seen some really neat “arty” wood flags with …

Christmas Ornaments

I know it seems a little early, but I’m trying to get a head start on holiday painting. I cut these 3″ x 5″ ornaments from 1/8″ plywood and painted simple little Christmas trees on them. A short piece of jute twine, for hanging, finished them off. Pretty sure I’ll be painting lots of these …

Pumpkin Door Hanger

I want blank door hangers that are different from the stock ones you buy in stores and online, so I’m drawing my own and making poster board templates. Hmmm…can you guess what I’ll be painting next??? I’ll be enlarging this template and getting out the jigsaw today. Can’t wait to paint this one!
