Latest Project...Hey Charlie Brown

Started with a piece of 3/8" wanes cot plywood.  Flipped it over, sanded, mixed some paint with my daughters advice and air brushed the pumpkins and their stems.  Traced the pumpkin outlines on some wrapping paper that you would use for moving and then drew the faces.  Cut the faces out to make stencils then air brushed the faces on.  Pre hung the pieces with twine and pins to balance the setup and then I super glued the twine where the pins were.  Next I put a coat of polyurethane on the pumpkins and the twine so they would be weather resistant.  Tomorrow, a picture from outside.

Let it be known, I have never attempted anything like this from scratch.  Big thanks to Steph.
