Old Thing New: Easy Craft for the New Year

img_0332

Roenne picked out a word for 2017, and I’d say she did a pretty good job. 🙂

Those triangles are from previous thing (made from scrap paper and magazine pages), and they were a nice extra touch, but the important part is the word, and heres how I made the letters with the girls:

First of all, if you have kids, find some old drawings done on printer paper (or maybe homework sheet?), if no kids, any sheet of old, printer sized paper will do (we’re swimming in paperwork, so i’m sure you have something laying around!).

Next, pick a word for the new year and print over the old sheets with outlined letters (choose “no fill” and “outline” in the text editor. I use Pages, but Microsoft Word also works.).

Then use crayons, markers, paint, etc to color in any which a way, cut out, and stick somewhere to brighten, remind, and guide you into 2017!

Happy New Year, and cheers to old things made new. 🙂
