Anyway, in the midst of all of this, I just had to take some time to play with an extremely cool Tellen's Place image for today's hop. It was kinda therapeutic to sit down and make this project; it was a joint effort with my 11 yr old daughter and we just relaxed and had fun with it!
Did I mention that Tellen's Place is one of our fabulous sponsors over on the S&S Forum this month?!?!! Head on over to participate in a challenge and you may have the chance to win an awesome digi image like this one!
We started with a paper mache hat that I found at the craft store and painted it with deep red glittery paint. Actually, my daughter did all of the painting while I colored my Hades image. She painted red first, then used some paint daubers, like the ones you use for Bingo, to add the cool looking dots all over the hat. After coloring up and cutting out my image, we attached him to the front of the dried hat. Then we painted chipboard letters to spell the word Grinch and attached those. The final touches were punchinella trim, a hanging ball ornament and red ribbon.
It was a super easy, but extremely fun project to make. And I know we'll be using this image again. I have so many ideas for him! Now, be sure to go check out the challenges on the Forum for your chance to win, and hop on over to the other DT member blogs listed below to see more great projects using images from Tellen's Place!
