I had these spare wooden frames and a bunch of fuzzy coloured balls in my craft cupboard and thought that if we added the two together with glue, we could have some fun decorating. I wanted what we created to be colourful and something that Liberty would enjoy doing and I think her smile tells you she was happy with what I came up with.
Sam was home sick from school on that day, so I set them both up to do some crafting. We applied a generous amount of glue to the wooden frame and I then left the two of them to stick the coloured balls to the frames. They had fun chatting away and talking about the colours they were using. It was fun to watch and listen to.
The finished rainbow look for each frame. We then left them to dry for about 10 minutes and I have to add that in this time Liberty was having so much trouble waiting for them to be ready to go on her wall that I knew I had to come up with a quick idea to finish them off. Of course I have no idea where she gets her lack of patience in waiting for something to happen from! Eeek!
So to speed things along a little I took a roll of double sided tape and ran it around the outside of the frames twice and then simply stuck thick ribbon to it. So the outside of the frames has a ribbon as decoration instead of painting them. Fast and easy. Then I quickly printed out two pictures on paper and stuck them to the back of the frames and hung them on the wall.
This is the finished product. As Liberty shares a room with Harmony and they are currently best friends, as they keep telling me, we used two recent pictures of them to hang on the wall. Liberty is very excited with the craft and artwork that she made herself with a little help from her brother. Of course Sam is now telling me he needs something new for his room!
