I love this little sun.
I love how imperfect it is.
I love how rugged it is.
I love what it says.
My sister loves it too.
She loves how imperfect it is.
She loves how rugged it is.
She loves what it says.
She wanted one for herself.
To hang at over her back garden patch. So she could see it from her bathroom window.
Her back garden patch is like a mile from her bathroom window.
Which means she needed a BIG sun. Like HUGE BIG.
So this time I made a huge big circle out of fence planks. The ones left over from my flag. And I screwed them together. Then I cut them into a rough circle with a circular saw. Not a bad circle for a straight saw, huh?
I cut a bunch of wood into random triangles to make the rays and threw them in a big ole bucket.
I put them in my car and drove to Oklahoma to make a sun with my sister.
She stenciled the words while I painted all those dang triangles five colors of yellow.
We glued on the rays in layers. Then we had to let them dry for a day or two with weights to hold the rays into place.
I love our giant sun. It's more than 36 inches wide!
I think it is magnificent!
It's even beautiful from the bathroom window.
Make something wonderful today!
We used a heavy duty adhesive to glue on the yellow pieces. And it worked great. For weeks. Until it rained. A bunch - I mean A BUNCH of the rays fell off.
Everyone was sad.
Any ideas on a really great, heavy duty, waterproof adhesive to repair it with?
Please let me know!
I Gotta Try That!
