Wood Cut Outs from The Craft Store

It really amazes me how many new, innovative crafts are available these days. If you like doing crafty things around the home then the craft stores of today are a regular field trip filled with ideas for creating.

I found these wood cut outs.  They cost less that $1.50 and come with a small package of markers.  I suppose these are geared for kids to work on, but I couldn't resist them.  I thought they would look cute posted up on my kids doors.  Although they are probably too old for this kind of thing I think they'll enjoy them.

This is basically "paint by numbers" with the craft company placing all the lines in it for you to paint.  I used mine to put up on the kids bedroom doors, but there are so many other uses for them.  There are so many to pick from and some are already painted for 
you.  Some cost as little as .25 cents.  You can't go wrong there. They work well for wall decor or even as a border.

Monkey man pictured below is going on my son's door (he's almost 18 years old).  This guy is "not" painted. Look how easy they make it.

He's kind of cute.  You can see how easy it will be to paint this guy. 

The two above are all painted.  I used acrylics and finished it up with a high gloss finish. The fun part is that each girl is painted to look somewhat like the kid who lives behind the door.

I'll admit that this is just fun for me!
