I love how hip state craft projects are right now. My daughter's name represents her two vastly different heritages: Valentine Dausae. Valentine for her red-dirt Okie roots (after Great-Grandma Valentine), and Dausae after her Karen great-great-grandma and great-great-great-grandpa (the Karen are an ethnic minority from Burma/Myanmar).
This is how I did it.
|Free hand drew and cut out a version of OK|
|Painter's tape down just OUTSIDE the template|
|Ripped up and taped down trash bag|
|Spray-painted with yellow from another nursery project (symmetry!)|
|Removed lowest layer of tape|
|Instructed husband to hold up|
|Painted heart over hometown, and placed over crib|
Pretty big improvement over this:
More projects and nursery pics to come!
