So after spending Easter weekend on the Chesapeake Bay, I decided I would take my recent driftwood find and make my own! My piece of wood was much smaller than I had wanted but it was the most boat-like out of my options. I drilled a large hole for my stick mast.
I needed to drill another small hole in the front of the wood and place a stick for my jib sail. I used a BBQ skewer to stuff the ends of my twine into the main sail hole. The sails are glued in place at top.
Isn’t it so cute? Here it is sailing on my mantel through my most recent shell acquisitions.
The boys wanted to try it out in their room. It looks great here, but they will destroy it.
I convinced my guys to let Mommy play with it for awhile. Oh, I love it in here!
And it cost me $0.00 and an hour of my time. Not bad, huh?
And I couldn’t end this post without celebrating the fact that I have reached 1000 followers!!! Wahoo!!! Thanks to everyone who has become a Google Reader Friend over the past year and half!
