Last week I, along with thousands of others, was challenged to complete a project from my Pinterest page. I chose this pin-project to git done.
The inspiration photo came from Pottery Barn Kids. Obviously, all of their home furnishings are drool worthy, but who in their mid-twenties can afford any of it? The answer: people who aren't public school teachers or life-time students. I digress... Looking at this picture, I thought, "I can do this." So I went to Micheal's and procured my materials: 5 pieces of scrap paper which were on sale for $0.25 each, bringing my project total to ~$2.00 when I factor in the gas it took to the store. After getting the materials, I printed off the above picture of the elephant decals. Then I outlined one of the elephants to get a feel for the proportions. I then drew the outline on the back of the scrapbook paper. This picture is like a 'magic eye' puzzle- you have to look at it really closely to see the elephant outline!
Here's the whole elephant family! I have fantasies of modge-podging the fam onto a big canvas painted a light, mint green, then writing the word family in the corner. Alas, for now- the 'decals' stuck to the wall are good enough for me!
P.S. You might be wondering, "Why blue polka dots?" Here's a hint!
