I would kill for hair this long and thick -- Beautiful simple braid. To make: french braid a section of your hair on either side. Once they reach the back, braid the rest down. This works better with thick hair.
This is a great idea for any sort of DIY artwork: trace a simple graphic onto three canvases, and paint. So much more esthetically pleasing than if you were to just trace and paint onto one canvas. Plus i love the whale idea for a little boy room :)
