Welcome to Italia?

SuperD decided to make a pressie to bring to Italia too. He decided on a welcome sign for the front door of their house in the mountains.

The little wooden countries were drawn free-hand (yeah..i know!!) by SuperD and were cut out IN ONE GO!! See how detailed they are...??This is the final product all painted up and accessorised with some material and straw!
... being as thrifty as we are here, the off-cuts were also used by hanging from the sign!...believe me...i was impressed!!

At first when I saw this I thought it was a pot stand and was secretly thinking "It's going to get stained and scorched as hot pot stands do and it would be such a pity to ruin all that hard work" but wait a minute - "a welcome sign" all nicely painted and decorated! That will last for years and will enhance any home! Well done, brilliant idea! xox

wow that is seriously impressive!! Super D must have a v steady hand! I love the wee Ireland - I always think it looks like a koala, but maybe that's just me?! Really cool, love that the cut-off were used, thrifty or what? also - how hard must they have been to cut out in one piece!!!??? love it!

It's like he used a magic cookie cutter!
