I made this for my husband, Brent, for his birthday a few years ago...I have also made one of these for all my friends and family, as gifts at one time or another....I just get big paper mache letters and paint them, then embellish them with whacky stuff...or things that are their interests, or hobbies...I put family names, kids, pets, etc. in them as well...or I go with a particular color theme...whatever strikes me at the time. They are fun to make...I love gluing the stuff on ...reminds me of crafts in grade school, only I'm better at it now LOL!
We learned how to needle felt at work several weeks back...and I absolutely love doing it! It is so much fun, and quite easy...and I find it very therapuetic...you may have seen the patriotic elephant that I posted a bit ago, that was also done in needle felt...I thought I'd share a few other things I did as well...I have actually been felting up a storm! I am workin on some funky Halloween creatures...they will be unveiled later this summer.
As I stated in an earlier post...I love Batman....I have several Batman shirts, books, etc...and my husband is a huge Batman fan as well...so for his Birthday last year I sculpted him this cartoon version of Batman and Robin...still need to add capes. His birthday is quickly approaching again...gotta do something else...maybe Bat Girl or Cat Woman?

You will see that I am a bit of a patriotic nut...I love red, white, and blue and flag memorabillia...I have my decorations up in my house from Memorial Day, until Labor Day...this signifies the beginning of Summer, and Summer means the 4th of July, cookouts, parades, and all that fun stuff...so through out the summer...I will be posting my patriotic crafts, decor, and photos...hope you enjoy!
