Recycled plywood becomes swinging garden kids

textilejo(5b Nova Scotia)June 13, 2011

I have used leftover pieces of plywood that came in packing boxes and made these handing swinging kids for the garden to sell. I like them so much it's hard to part with them, LOL

A little paint and some gems and recycled bits and bobs and each little gal and guy is different and look so nice in the garden:-0)

That red and white one with the ladybugs is my favorite and I took the most time trying to figure out what I wanted to do with it.

I wasn't sure if they would sell for $15 each but the 10 I made have been sold and the orders keep coming in for more. I need to hound my son for more wood:-)

Nice recycling! They remind me of a quilt pattern something like this! Great painting, too! Looks like you are having fun w/GJ! TFS! Jeanne S.

Those are adorable. I'm not surprised they are selling. You are an excellent painter, I particularly like the little girls outfits.

They are all so cute! I would imagine that people would just have to have 2. I think $15 is very reasonable for one of those cuties.

Those are adorable. I'm not surprised they're selling as fast as you can make them.

Those are soooo cute. What a wonderful painter you are. $15.00 is very resonable....no doubt they sold

What little cuties!! Glad you are selling them & taking orders! Might want to paint girl & boy so they are facing each other in case someone has 2 trees to hang them from.(Just a couple of pairs like that to see how they sell). TFS Jan

DITTO on what everyone else said. Those are totally adorable and your paint job on them is perfect.
I'd buy them and can see why they would sell easily!

hugs, Karen
