Paper Mache Robin

I made this cute little Robin over the weekend.  The body is made out of paper mache.  The wings are pieces of cardstock painted and hot glued on.  And for the legs I used paper clips.  It is painted with indoor/outdoor acrylic craft paint.
You can find the recipe for paper mache paste here:

Branch Handled Outdoor Serving Tray

I just loved this branch handled tray by Funky Junk Interiors so I decided to try one for myself.  

Here's my version...
I hand painted the dandelions on with white indoor/outdoor acrylic craft paint.





And here's the tray in its new home on my picnic table...

Nautical Storage Box

 Here's another storage box made out of a cardboard box.  I made this one for my son's nautical themed room for storing stuff in his closet.  I used stiff burlap and trimmed it with rope.  I used a stencil for the anchor and just colored it in with a Sharpie.
