Merry Christmas from ScrappyHorses!

Merry Christmas!

Ok, now what would you expect to see on my blog on Christmas Eve?

Homemade gifts are always so much fun to give and receive!  This one is such an easy make.  A horseshoe, some flowers from stash, a ribbon off a horse purchase in my stash, and cardboard!  That's it!  Well and the horse head from stash, also.  You could always substitute a button or another flower.

Now, possibly you don't have any horseshoes laying about.....  Hmmmm...do you know a good farrier?  Only kidding, you can usually pick them up at your local farm store.  I believe I got a size 0.  It really doesn't matter, you'll just cut your photo to fit the shoe!

Tractor Supply 1 pair for about $6

Back the shoe and pic with some cardstock (I used black) then back that with some heavy cardstock.  To make it stand, I used a 2 inch corner brace.  I bent it in slightly and glued it on with E6000.  Upon reflection, I think I would use a wider corner brace to make it a bit sturdier.  This one worked, but I just like things really sturdy!  You could probably find this at your local farm store, also!  

Hey, you can pick up your cat/dog/horse/chicken/cattle/goat/etc supplies while you're there craft shopping!  Oh, and don't forget, they have lots of candy there, also!  One shop stop!  

This gift idea is off to the following challenges:
