Little Wooden People!
My family is so wholesome. When all of the girls get together [and even the Brother, sometimes] we sit and we craft. And it's so much fun. I think that documenting our forays into the crafting world is really fun, too!
Little Wooden People was another craft we undertook, on a whim. They were just so cute, in their blank-canvas-ish-ness. So we got a bunch, clothespins and pegs, and acrylics in fun colors, and went nuts.
Here are some of our little cuties! You can see Mooshoopork's cuties here. Next time, I would like to have shiny silver paints! And create tiny little ninjas! Now I know. I was so proud of my wooden self and Boyfriend... until I saw those.
Here are some things I learned:
- They were far cuter with a base coat of paint-- like, I painted the whole head and body flesh tone and then painted the hair, clothes, eyes, etc. on top.
- The pegs were way cuter than the clothespins
- Things like toothpicks may actually work better than brushes for tiny little details.
- The tiny accoutrements (like wire glasses) made all the difference! So cute. I didn't even THINK to put arms on them, though!
These are A-DOR-A-BLE (and also not by me; via flickr):
I highly recommend painting little wooden people. Happy crafting!
