Whowouldathought we like Decals

I never knew that the boys would enjoy making plagues w/ decals... who knew they liked to get so involved in mami's little projects and I terribly enjoy having them help.

Check out what we came up w/

Here's what I found at the local GW. It was partially FREE! Teehee

We laid it on an Ikea sage green plate that I got this summer and sprayed it white. Then Jacob and I used a ruler (his because he wanted it no other way) and made sure the line would be perfect for the decal. We laid it down and I had Jacob run his fingers and nails over it to secure it.

Then he carefully started to peel it back. He's such a great little teeny helper.

Pausing for a final check, he was convinced it wasn't on straight, but we agreed that it was.

Jacob was taking too long so I took it upon myself to peel it off. I did it very very slowly!

Nelson choose the word hope out of the Hope. Faith. Love.

Fin! I love how simplistic it is.  Please, ignore the unfinished back splash, that is to come soon enough =)

I hope you'll keep stopping by since the boys have a couple more decal projects they want to do that they talked me into =)


Thank you for visiting!!

Show me some love and follow me, I'd love to have you along for the journey =)
