We like to talk about everything from home decor to fashion to parenting. The main overall theme though is FUN. If you don't like to laugh, then this probably isn't the place for you.
I guess you could say I’ve got a serious case of SPRING FEVER, because lately, I am determined to sprinkle bits of spring decor just about anywhere and everywhere I can. Maybe it’s because I’m sick of everything outside my window being deader than death itself. So, while strolling through the aisles of Michael’s the other day, I was inspired to create a spring-themed shiplap initial sign. Using some of the materials I already had on hand at home, the whole project only cost me around eleven bucks!
HERE’S WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
To begin, I painted the round shiplap sign white. (You could always stain the wood if you’d prefer.)
After the shiplap sign was dry, I then placed the wooden “M” on it and traced the letter with a pencil.
Next, I outlined small sections of the pencil with the hot glue and then attached clumps of moss. I worked in small sections so that I could keep the shape of the letter without the moss creeping over the lines.
Once the letter was all filled in, I trimmed the wild and crazy pieces back so that the “M” was clearly defined. Next, I looped the jute rope through one of the planks and tied a knot at the back. I then looped the other end of the rope to the opposite side and tied another knot at the back so that I could hang the sign. And that, believe it or not, was it! Such an easy, inexpensive little DIY that could even be used on a front door instead of a wreath!
Maybe if I keep myself busy with projects like this, I’ll forget that we still have who knows how many weeks left until the warm weather is here to stay….
