Pool Noodle Framed Shark Art



So I had to use this noodle here {my brain} to come up with a Noodle Project!
Easy enough right?
Wrong!

I have seen adorable projects made from those famous $1 Pool Noodles.Wreaths, Summer Games, Marbles Runs, .... just type in Pool Noodles on Pinterest...and there you go.

I wanted to create something that I didn't see.
Something a little, on the Wonky and Wild Side. 
Because that is how I roll.

The boys bedroom is Surf/Beach Theme.
Derek is Obsessed with Sharks at the moment.
My "noodle" starting racing with ideas.
And this is what I got:


Not too Shabby Aye?
I got 2 thumbs up from Mason & Derek! 
They were stoked about their new Shark Art hanging in their room!

To cool to Noodle? Oh knock it off--
Here we go:


1. Paint your board gray & let it dry
2. Paint some white on your board & let it dry
3. Sand it, Rough it up




4. Print out a Shark from the Computer
5. Pressing down hard, trace the shark 
6. You will have a nice imprint 
7. Using the imprint, fill in the shark with your paint 




8. Measure your sides and cut your noodle to fit. You will then cut down one side to create the slit that will wrap around the edge of the board

To hang, I used some twine and a nail!


And since Derek is insisting his Birthday Party will be SHARKS--
 This is come in handy for some party decor!
