This witch was an on again and off again project. Thanks to Madison it was on again!I think she just loved the idea of having many cat's in our yard. Thank you Martha!
We saw this idea here on Martha Stewart's site .She gives great directions and free patterns too.
You will find patterns to three cats and one very large witch. Along with the patterns she will give you a supply list and step by step instructions. Just piecing the pattern together was the most time consuming but fun and we were able to get all of the pieces on one full sheet of plywood. Her directions make you think you need two but if you place them just right you can fit them all.
I just attached the pattern on the plywood with some scotch tape and started tracing the outer edge.
Not only did I have fun..
but Madison did too!
I used a hand jigsaw to cut the pieces out.
We made it a family affair.
Make sure you use good exterior paint on this project.
We just rolled two coats and let her dry.
Here she is almost done. I still need to attach her broom and a small lantern from her hand.
We started working on this project a couple weeks back just in case you noticed the highlight hair do, ha! We set it out and a day later I noticed something strange...did you see? Look closer....
What in the world!
The culprit! Her name is Alley. Remember the dog with the broken leg back when...
Yes, we are talking about you Alley. If she was not so darn cute I would have to be mad..hehe.
I guess you would like to know the winners of the two giveaways last week. Well here they are! French Elements winner of the pillow goes to forthesakeoftime.blogspot.com
