On a mission

I am on a mission to create crafty unique gifts for friends and family. In my search for the perfect gifts, I have realized that the best way to make it personal is to make it yourself. I am stumbling across new ideas every day. So let the crafting begin!

I got the idea from this link

However, I spray painted mine and put the handprints directly onto the spray painted surface. I then used a matte finishing spray to seal it so that the images would be protected. You could also take the time to putty then sand the screw holes if you wanted to. You could even use a paint brush to touch up the surface of the foam that you can see through the holes if you didn’t want them to be as noticeable. I decided to leave mine because it added to the distressed look of the handprints and the raw look of the materials. Plus these are for guys!
