This is an easy little gift that I made for my daughter's teacher. Her last name starts with "D" so I got the letter at Hobby Lobby. It's paper mache' and only cost $2.00! I painted it black with a brush, used a tan color paint mixed with antiquing glaze. I painted that over the black then wiped it with a rag to give it the antique look. Then I used the tan color to paint the little motif that I designed. Then I tied on leopard ribbon in a bow. I think it would look cute on a bookshelf mixed in with other objects.

Picture Pillow

This is a pillow that I made for my Mother-in-law for Christmas. I used a picture that I took of all of our kiddos and printed on fabric that you put in the printer, rather than using iron-on transfer. Then I found the fabric and trims and viola'! a picture pillow! I'm going to make one for myself but change the photo to black and white instead of sepia to go with my decor better.
