It doesn’t seem like that long ago that I couldn’t wait for Lara to fit into a cute little red dress that she had received as a pressie when she was born, it was size 6-9 months and i thought the time would never come…
But here we are, she turns FIVE on Tuesday and starts school on Wednesday. O.M.G!
So anyway, back to the job at hand, I decided to make a photo prop/memento for all those pictures up against the wall 🙂
Unbelievably simple. If you would like to have a go you will need:
- a canvas (Dealz/Euro Giant €1.50)
- black poster paint
- crayons (of course!!)
- something to scrape the paint away (I used the end of a spoon and a cocktail stick)
If you can’t get out to get a canvas, you could just use a sheet of paper and then pop it in a frame afterwards.
So to start off, just colour the entire surface of the canvas in crayon.
Next up, just paint it black. It might need more than one coat.
Once the paint has dried, just scrape out your message…
And that’s it!! Here’s my finished product…
Hope you enjoy making yours and your little ones have a great start to their school career.
