I made this in April. I waiting until July because I figured posting Christmas projects in April was obnoxious, but July is totally fine (ha!). I meant to make this last year, but....life got in the way. Again, I found these shutters at a garage sale, the lady was given them away, it was in a pile that said free, but I felt so guilty about just taking something and not buying anything I bought a lampshade I didn't need and haven't used...true story. I figured I might could do something with it someday.
My friend Terry cut the face and arms out for me from some thin wood I had from Home Depots scrap section (buy the cutting station, there is some good stuff back there!). They also sell circles and ovals at Michael's in the unfinished wood section, just in case my friend Terry isn't available to cut it for you....and my jig saw never shows up...
I added Spanish Moss for the hair (with a glue stick) and made a halo with wire I stapled on the back before nailing this to the top of the shutter.
...and now I'm off to work on some Valentine's crafts....I kid. I kid.
