A BIG Craft Project

Lately I have been away from blogland and have been helping a friend of mine on a craft project of BIG proportions! We have been working on it for about 2 weeks until almost 9:00 PM every night.  It is Dairy Festival time in our community and we have a parade featuring all the Dairy Festival pageant contestants. Each contestant was required to build a float for the parade. My friend’s daughter, Hayley, is a contestant.  The rule was to use a single axle trailer. Our’s was about 10’ long by 5” wide. 100_0158

The theme this year for the festival is “Red, White & Moo”.  For the float we had a theme of “An All American Summer” and featured fireworks made from plywood, and an “All American Brand” Milk carton. There was a lot of tissue paper stuffed and glitter. Another friend made letters on sparkly paper with her Cricut. All of us working together turned out a pretty nice float.


Hayley looked beautiful on the float!


While working on the float was a lot of fun, well at least most of the time, I look forward to working on some smaller craft projects in the future!  I missed all of my bloggy friends and hope to catch up with you again soon!
