Transportation Wall Art

Well it is official. Ty and Davis are crawlers and climbers. They are not content unless they are climbing on one of their toys or family members. Wish us luck! I have been busy making food for them, but sometimes on the go or in a rush I use the food pouches.  They have the colorful twist off tops on them, and I have been collecting them hoping to use them for crafts. 

The other day I had a rare moment where the boys were napping simultaneously for more than an hour. I brought my Silhouette Cameo out and cut out some vinyl shapes in various colors.    I cut the shapes out on the Cameo and simply just adhered them to the canvases I had leftover from a previous project. I used a glue gun to attach the food pouch tops to make them the wheels of various modes of transportation. Wynn requested a helicopter, and said that there was a wheel at the top to spin the propeller. She chose a purple lid for that particular canvas.

This project will hang in the newly designed play area once I get it all organized. I am still trying to make decisions on what to keep around for the boys and how to store the toys more efficiently.  

Some of these shapes came in a set of two or four. I purchased all of them through the Silhouette Online Store for less than a $1 a set.

I think they turned out simple and cute. I still have plenty of food pouch lids left. I am thinking of making a game for Wynn next. Maybe there will be another nap time soon that I will be able to get something fun created.  Enjoy your weekend! Thought I'd share the most recent attempt at a family shot. Four out of the five looking is not bad! :)

Here are some other projects I made with my Silhouette Cameo:

Beverage Tub

Piggy Bank

Land of Nod Inspired Artwork

Hair Accessories Storage

PBK Inspired Easter Buckets


  1. Great idea! My kids would love to make something like this themselves.

  2. Love this idea and your family photo! I should have started following your blog a long time ago! You mentioned your silhouette cameo and having canvases leftover from other projects. Did you do any blog posts about those projects too? If so, I would love to read about them and see photos, but I'm not sure how to search your blog. Also, I know Michaels sells canvases, but is there another place you can recommend (especially online) that you find has better deals for craft supplies? Thanks!

  3. ADORABLE and BRILLIANT. Love these. How fun!

    Enjoy life with crawlers.

  4. That is brilliant! Your play room is going to be so bright and colourful.

  5. This is super cute. The lids are so pretty. The whole project is adorable!

  6. Way to recycle! These are awesome.
