Birch Fix

Sarah has provided lots of creative inspiration for which I am so thankful.  Unfortunately, I have not been great at execution over these last several months.  Thus, lots of coffee straws, incomplete arrows, cans of spray paint, etc. are laying around the house patiently waiting for attention.

We had talked about some projects using birch slices.  My dad was kind enough to beautifully slice and sand multitudes of birch for me.  I just loved the feel of the slices, and I wanted to figure out a way to share them with others for Christmas.

I decided to make ornaments that depicted states with a heart where the recipient lives.  Being fixated on ombre, I busted out the pastels and made an attempt.  I probably should have sealed these with a clear laquer, but let's be real.  Living in the frozen tundra, spray paint season is exceptionally short.  Big frown.

I drilled small holes and used baker's twine as the hanger...Sarah - we have a few left...what can we do with the leftovers?
