Scrappy Sail Boat Art

Aren’t these SOOO cute? One of my favorite projects. These scrappy little sail boats were meant to be…I found the wood in the boat shape on the floor in the workshop after cutting boards for other projects. Of course I couldn’t make one lonely boat so I dug through my scraps to find other similar shapes.

I painted each piece separately with acrylic paint. Once dry, I sanded to distress, glued the boat pieces on, then sealed. I attached a self-leveling hanger.

Voila…the cutest little sail boats ever.

I recently found a fabulous blog – Beyond the Picket Fence (check it out) – I’m inspired by her scrappy projects.

If you like my scrappy sail boats, I’d be honored if you pinned them!

Thanks for looking!

About southernflaircrafts

I am a very busy wife and mother of two beautiful little girls. I work part-time in a flexible position as an Office Administrator for a financial advisory firm; I love the work I do and am especially grateful that it allows me to be a Mom first. I love to create!! Although I think my creativity was born with my first child, before children I would not have considered myself very creative. My mind is always wandering ahead to my next project, whether it's woodworking, sewing, paitning, or crafting with my kids. I also love blog-hopping (and blogging - I'm learning as I go); sometimes I see things I know I have got to make or I see a great creation and am insprired with ideas of my own. I especially like projects that rescue some treasure that would otherwise become another victim of the landfill.
