Aggie Wreath

Happy Friday everyone!! I finally finished the wreath I was working on. I was going to make an autumn wreath, but I wasn't sure I would finish before fall was over, so I decided on an Aggie wreath. It has a little owl looking over at a football. Football season is right around the corner so I'm showing my Aggie spirit on my front door! Whoop and Gig 'Em!!!

Update: Hair Barrettes

I'm testing the waters with these hair clipies for Humna. Her mom really liked the 3 peas in a pod barrette from, so I attempted to reproduce it. What do you think?
Now, I don't know how much her mom liked the birdie clipie from, but I liked it a lot so I made one of those. What should I make next? I'm thinking ice cream cone, flower, bumble bee...

Yep. You heard me. Cornhole. It's a game that is largely popular up north (Ohio mainly). Jacob's dad's family is from the booming town of Enterprise, Ohio. Google it if you dare. It won't show up. That's how booming it is.

Anyway, we decided to make a cornhole game of our own. After blood, sweat and tears (well, no tears), we are satisfied with our finished product. Poor picture quality, but you get the gist.
The ATM emblem was definitely the trickiest part. Jacob had the best idea, which was to put lots of tape on the board, then cut out the emblem into the tape with an exacto knife, then paint inside the tape. It worked beautifully.
I also sewed 8 bean bags, filled with dry black beans to toss into the holes. They are not shown here because I am lazy.
