I felt pretty crafty a few weeks ago and needed something that didn’t take much time (hey, I’m a mom… all I have time for is something that “doesn’t take a lot of time”). I came across this cute little project on Pinterest and decided it was something I could tackle in stages, so if I was tied up and couldn’t get back to it in a while I could still complete it later. I was pretty pleased by the way it turned out!
I made a few modifications to the ones I found on Pinterest, so I was happy to put my own twist on the cute examples I found.
What You’ll Need:
- canvas, board, or card stock
- glue gun
- paint or paint markers
- black Sharpie
You’ll use the canvas, board or card stock as the background for your Up house and balloons. I glued the buttons for balloons on first, so I could get a sense of how big I should make the house. After gluing all of the buttons on, I drew the Up house with a pencil. Next, I painted the house. After the paint dried, I added a black Sharpie outline to the house and drew strings for the button balloons. Voila! An Up house.*
