OK, maybe not quite so little! I was given a pallet that was used for something very heavy. It was small but the boards on it were about 6 inches wide and one inch thick. They were destined to be Bears!
The first order of business was to make a pattern, so off I went to the recycle bin for some chipboard!
From here to the finished product, I forgot to take pictures...sorry! I get caught-up in a project and the last thing on my mind is a camera. I'll try to do better next time - promise!
The bears were cut with a jigsaw, sanded, given a coat of black craft paint, and distressed. The muzzle, or snout, was cut from a thin piece of wood, painted, and glued on for a little 'dimension'.
The eyes were painted and a scrap of red and white gingham was wrapped around the neck.
I think they'd make great 'Greeters' at the front door, maybe with a picnic basket?
Here's hoping all is well in your part of the world. The weather has been absolutely brutal in so many places. May you be safe and dry!
Thank you for visiting the Cottage - have a wonderful week.
