My Step-Dad was a wonderful wood worker. He made beautiful furniture and accessories from wood.
But these tiny snowshoes were something he also made. I never knew why he made these but they are so cute.
One was strung with filament but he never got around to stringing the second one.
So, today I finished stringing the second snowshoe.
Then I decided they should be displayed.
I found a cute little oval frame in my stash and framed the tiny snowshoes.
I cut a piece of patterned paper to fit the back of the frame and glued it to the cardboard backing then added a few pieces of ephemera in the background after attaching the snowshoes.
Here you can see the frame with everything attached and ready to finish.
I added a couple of paper Prima flowers and made two green velvet leaves I cut from velvet ribbon.
I plan to hang this by my staircase where I have a collection of family pictures and keepsakes.
