I grew up watching all of the awesome holiday specials that aired on primetime TV. My sisters and I favored all of the episodes starring the Peanut gang. The most popular annual traditions are: A Charlie Brown Christmas, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, and It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown.

Because Scott and I agreed that the front room, the first room you see in our house as you walk in, should be full of light-hearted and friendly decor, we chose to create art that centered around our favorite Peanuts characters: Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, and Linus.

We used comic strip printouts to paper maché the background with, and silver thumbtacks to outline each of the large peanut characters. Scott often held Jedi in a Bjorn on his chest while he sat on an exercise ball pushing thumbtacks into this 3 ft. by 4 ft. canvas. Our daughters are now 5 years old and 3 years old. Even though they’re both tall enough to reach these canvases, they have not shown much interest in pulling out the thumbtacks.

If you would like us to create a special piece similar to this one, for your home or business, we would love to help your vision come to life. Please call us at (916) 769-6429 or email us at
