Sharing recipes, crafts and frugal living, the challenges and triumphs of parenting a neurotypical child and a child on the Autism Spectrum.

Building a Nest

Building a nest.   Becoming a family.
The house hunt has finally ended and our offer (#6) was accepted!  We have the inspection this weekend and now we begin the stage of tying up loose ends and getting paperwork in order.  I wanted to make Lauren something special for this occasion.  So I pulled out the paints, not a medium I tap into often.
For this project I used an old, stained apron that was destined for the trash and cut it to fit a wood embroidery hoop.  The fabric from the apron is a bottom weight fabric and the acrylic paint took really well to it.  I hot glued a ribbon to the backside of the hoop and finished it off with a fabric backing, hot gluing it in place.  We are looking forward to hanging it up in our new house.
