Homemade Gifts: Car Playmat

I got this awesome idea for a DIY car playmat from A Girl and a Glue Gun and just went to town making this for Owen's Christmas present. (ha, I just looked back at hers and realize I kind of made mine into Crazy-Town.. as my husband says "um, it sure is busy..") Anyway, I think Owen will love it:

I wanted to just keep filling it in, adding more animals and trees and stuff and my husband just told me "stop."  Probably a good idea :)
I'm a little on the fence about the animals--my son did see this while I was making it and he loved playing with the animals, but in the end I decided to glue them on anyway.  Not sure if I should have done that or not.

so yay! I am so glad its done!  But don't let my impatience deter you from making this...  Mine is kind of big, you could do one the size of a card table that would be awesome, and just add a little bit at night for the next week or so and you would have an awesome pressie for your kid!  A Girl and a Glue Gun also has good ideas for girl themed mats!

  9. I agree! You should do a tutorial! How creative of you. The holiday is approaching and I really want to give my year old daughter something special. Maybe I should employ you to make play mats for her. This can be a lucrative business for you. These play mats
