An Avery and Mommy Collabo

Have you ever checked out my Made by Little Hands linky party? 
That is where I found this idea for straw prints that look like fireworks from Putti Prapancha.
I thought this would be a great decoration with a little embellished frame made by me, for the mantle.
Click “Read More” to see how I made it!

First Avery painted with the straws in red and blue paint on white paper. Then we let that dry. 
I took red, white and blue fabric yo yo’s and hot glued them on a plain black matte that I would put the picture in later.
Cute right? I think it is so fun! And I love that it is her art and a craft project at the same time!
Are you excited for the fourth of July!?!

    I love how you made it look so nice on your mantle. Great idea!
