I stained them heavily with the above food safe, mineral oil, found at Home Depot. This is where the $9 cost came from.
The result was a very antique looking piece of wood.
Each mini board has its own features.
Some thin, some fat – but all so lovely!!!
They are about the size of an adorable 3 years olds face.
The perfect size for a mini loaf of bread, or a roll at dinner time. They would also work great as a cheese board.
I think they would also be great for any food photography enthusiasts.
The possibilities are endless.
We should probably sell them. Hmmmm. Not this year.
Instead, we tied them up with a picture of the Savior, the true Bread of Life.
With a reminder that if we come to Him, we shall never hunger. (John 6:35, King James Version of the Bible).
The girls had a great time packing these to our dear friends around us,
with some fresh baked bread (of which one or two may have fallen on the ground on the way).
And that is the extent of our homemade holidays for 2013. A very rewarding project.
I did muster out a fluffy wreath for the entry, thanks to a dear friend who agreed to make it with me. Friends are great motivators.
