|Tuscan Grapes Plaque |
As you might have guessed, I love crafting with paper bags. I also love creating crafts with Smoothfoam. Here, I combined the two to create this grapes plaque in a aged style that has the look of a plaster plaque. It reminds me of something you might see on a stucco wall in Tuscany.
To make this plaque, I cut the foam balls in half and arranged them on a board. Then I dampened the wrinkled paper bag and wrapped it over the balls and board pushing it around the balls and wrinkling it up around the bunch of grapes. I added a couple of paper bag leaves and a stem. I found the kids' watercolor box and added some color.
I can't wait to try more in this style. I'm so happy with the way it turned out that I'm making another one. And, that never happens with me. Usually I make one of something, then I'm on to the next idea!
I hope you'll try it, too. For further instructions on how to make this easy plaque, go here:
What should I try next? Maybe apples or strawberries!
