This is the current view on Sawyer’s gallery wall. I have one more giant chipboard S, but it needs to be painted, and I think I may put it on another wall.
Everything on this wall is handmade, thrifted, or purchased on major sale.
The Imagine canvas came from the thrift store in brand new condition, but it was originally from Hobby Lobby. I think I paid $4.99 for it.
The moose and elephant were likewise from the thrift store, but originally from Target. I think they were $2.99 each.
The letters spelling his name were half off at Michael’s and I added the scrapbook paper.
The wood slice S, the burlap S, the blue foam S, and the little orange S with the arrow were all clearanced at Hobby Lobby. All were between $1 and $2.
The owl painting I think came from Hobby Lobby on clearance, but I’ve had it for several years so I can’t be sure.
The scratch art at the top was a VBS project this year with materials from Michael’s. I laminated the scratch board before adhering it to the frame to preserve the picture.
The pinwheel I made with my We R Memory Keepers Pinwheel Punch Board. I just pinned it straight to the wall with a ball push pin. The paper was from the same stack I used to cover his name.
The woodburned pieces are all made by me. They were all wood blanks purchased at either Walmart or Hobby Lobby &1.47-$2.99 for 6-8 pieces. The very center round piece with father and son hunters was the part of a wooden spool that originally held the twine and clothes pins in Lily’s room. The image was a stamp that I stamped in brown ink and then went over with my wood burning tool.
The truck on the Sawyer’s Salvage Yard was also a stamped image that I burned over, although I did add the FORD to the tailgate.
The Sawyer the Brave piece is clay art made by me.
The Oh Darling Let’s Be Adventurers is my version of one done by Addicted to DIY.
The white rectangle is impossible to photograph, but looks awesome in person and is a Heidi Swapp cardstock piece that says Be True and was foiled in silver using my Minc. It was part of a set I got on clearance at Joann.
The bear oval and fox oval were drawn by Nick from artwork available at Hobby Lobby. I burned over his drawings and painted the accents.
All of the other wood pieces were original pieces free handed by me. I’m so not an artist, but Sawyer loves that I made them for him.
