I didn't tell you yesterday, but I have ALSO been making other Back to School decorations for around the house :0}
Introducing, Walter the Book Worm! Oh how I love Nerds!!! This little guy is a welcomed new addition to the family of nerds currently housed in the Sew*CakeMaker household.
I made some pencils and apples too to go with Walter. I cut all of these shapes out of 2" wood with my band saw, then cut the additional bits and pieces out of 1/8", 1/4", and beaded plywood.
I had the one pencil on the shelf for a day or two, but really didn't like it just sitting there. That was when I ran out to the garage and sliced the bottom corner off. Now I have a semi-standing pencil. I totally love it this way. I am currently fighting the temptation to slice the other one too.
Now, I have one more Back-to-School thing I hope to get done, said thing is to accompany my little book worm, but I am running out of steam. We shall see if I can get to it before I hit the last stretch of wedding stuff waiting for me.
I don't know if it is weird, but these two guys are gonna stay on the porch. I like them out there :0}
It is so fun to drive up to the house and see my cute little shelf sitters as I throw the truck into park.
Just in case you want a couple of these Back-to-School decorations too, I will have them on my Etsy site in the next day or two along with the pattern for sale. You can order the wood crafts finished, or save a couple bucks and order them unpainted, thus keeping all the fun for yourself :0) Whatever the case, feel free to email me if I don't get back here soon enough.
Happy Crafting everyone!!!
