People in Picture

I love this project.  Doesn’t it look great.  At that time I lived in Columbia, SC and I purchased the wire people local Goodwill.  They each cost about one dollar.  Eventually, I moved and took them along with me.

When I moved back to Atlanta, GA, I purchased a KEWL solid wood picture from my local Goodwill.  One day I decided to put the items together along with material I purchased from Hobby Lobby hobby stores.

The steps were simple but required patience and dexterity.  First, I glued both halves of the fabric onto backer board.  Second, I sewed the piece that was glued between both halves of the fabric.  Lastly, I used small metal pieces to secure the wire people to the final piece.  It is a tricky project, but an enjoyable one
