Handmade Present Cork Painting

My husbands’ cousin is in the process of opening a winery in Poynette.  My girls ADORE Shaun and he equally adores them.  I saw something on Pinterest earlier this year and knew we had to do it.  IMG_3027So, on Sunday night, I stripped the girls down, covered the floor with paper and gave them paint, canvases, and wine corks.  The girls made Shaun some wine cork paintings – hopefully for his new shop scheduled to open in the Summer of 2013.
IMG_3023 Pip’s the only one that let me take her picture.  IMG_3024 She had a lot of fun with the paint but had to learn the hard way that you shouldn’t put it in your mouth…IMG_3025 Seriously!?  Doesn’t this look cool?IMG_3026  All three girls had a great time making the paintings.  I had them each do three mini canvases and I think they’ll make a perfect 9 patch grid wall hanging.  IMG_3036 Here are the 9 finished canvases.  The upper row was done by Capri. the middle row by Pip and the bottom row by Cedi.IMG_3039
And of course – they had to use ALL the wine corks!  I can’t wait to see what Shaun thinks!
It definitely made me realize that next year I’m just going to prep a lot of canvases and let the girls paint pictures for everyone!  I know I would love to get one of their paintings.
