I know I haven't crafted for a couple of weeks.
It has been kind of busy around here lately and I just haven't had the motivation to be crafty.
I seriously have a huge list of things I want to make, but I just don't have the time or the motivation to actually make it! :)
I was able to put together a simple craft today, that I am actually using for a wedding present.
It was super easy to make, and was really inexpensive. I had all of the supplies on hand.
Yes, I even had the M.
I was planning on using that for another project, but it just so happens that the last name of the newlywed couple begins with M.
Step 1: Paint your frame. I painted mine black. It required a couple of coats.
Step 2: Paint your letter black, or whichever color that you prefer. :)
Step 3. Mod podge some paper on your letter and then use sandpaper and distressing ink to make it look old. Then use lace and a button to embellish. I tried to keep it simple. This person has a very similar style to my own, and I like to keep things looking simple.
Step 4: Tie a small bow (I used fabric, that I ripped) around the top of your frame. Then secure another piece of fabric to hot glue to your letter.
And your done!
I really like how it turned out! The best part was that it only took about a half hour to put together and I didn't have to run out and get any supplies!
I think I might make myself one in the future. We will be moving soon, and when we get settled I would really like to have a gallery style wall and I think this would look perfect for my wall!
Linking up to these parties!
