Next year The Wizard of Oz is celebrating their 75th anniversary and in honor of the event, I was recently asked to tell you about a new line of Wizard of Oz crafts. Being HUGE fans of the Wizard, I am thrilled to be invited to the party!
The package that was sent over was filled with a variety of craft options. If you have young Oz fans in your life, Darice has a huge selection of projects to keep your creative ones busy.
When my kids were little, I always tried to incorporate whatever they made into our home decor. Especially during the various holidays when they would bring home arts and crafts from school, it was important to me to proudly display it, but to also do so in a way that complimented whatever else was going on in the space. Although it’s been some time since Evan and Tess have brought home projects like that, when all of the Oz supplies showed up at my door, I quickly recalled my days of combining my two favorite worlds.
To incorporate one of the Oz projects into our fall decor, I pulled out this vintage book to go with my kid friendly craft.
It’s my understanding that the book is a sequel to the original Oz Story and it’s highly treasured in our home since Tyson received it from his grandparents.
The pen and ink illustrations are stunning and give even more insight into the colorful characters that L. Frank Baum envisioned.
A few pumpkins and raffia and we have a new autumn vignette in our living room.
Are you all set with fall decorations around your place? How do you showcase your children’s crafts in your home decor? So let’s hear it…. which is your favorite character from The Wizard of Oz?
