Church Craft Fair Goodies

Hello everyone!!!! I hope you are all having a great weekend!!! I am going to work on a few Christmas projects today....I will be making 12 sets of the gingerbread men like the ones below (small, medium, and large) for my family and friends. 

Here are some of the projects I made for my church craft sale....


Aren't these little gingerbread men adorable....they are made with wood balls and a clay pot. The heads, arms, and clay pot bodies were all painted with acrylic paint and glued together with Tacky Glue. I painted the faces, arms, and bottom edge and then added a little pink chalk for the cheeks. A good coat of sealer spray was used before adding the bows and buttons. 

I made about 37 of these candy bar wrappers and we sold them all....


My friend, Sue Knox, took all the pictures and printed them out....all I had to do was put them on a card. 


I tried to keep the designs pretty CAS so the beauty of the pictures took center stage!!


I made a few of these sets using a variety of different stamps....they all have a sentiment stamped on the inside.


I'll be back tomorrow with a few more card sets I made for the craft sale.....thanks for stopping by and have a great Saturday!!!

I just adore those little clay pot gingerbread men. Where are you finding wooden heads? I cannot find any wooden balls that would be large enough for a head? Great job!
