February SOTM "Home sweet home"

If you came from Priscilla of  Priscilla's Paperie  then you are in the right place!

For my project, I decided to make this "Home Sweet Home" wall decoration. I found a 4x6 wood frame from the goodwill that was unpainted for .99 cents. What a deal! I found some craft paint that I had purchased ages ago, that can be used to paint wood, terracotta, and other outside items. This color is barn red. I stamped the sentiment with Stazon ink onto cashmere card stock. You can't see it, but I added a few small pieces of bling on the swirlies.  I made a flower out of burlap ribbon. This was not my design, I found a video on you tube by a sister consultant. You can watch the video HERE. I then added a button threaded with some of the burlap strings that I had pulled out of the ribbon when I made the flower. To adhere the flower, I hot glued it to the frame. I then hot glued the burlap at the top to create the hanging piece.

Thanks for stopping by!
