Monogram {door art}

image 

Everyone who knows me knows I am a sucker for a monogram! I made some of these for Christmas presents with holiday colors but I thought this is perfect for anytime of year! I found the giant wooden letter at Hobby Lobby and just used left over ribbon I had from various projects! Easy peasy! And I love it!

Step 1: paint the letter, I used white spray paint, let dry

Step 2: add any decor, for this one I only did black polka dots

Step 3: make an awesome bow, I used 4 different ribbons. I am a sucker for a BIG ASS BOW!

That’s it!!

ENJOY!! mama bird

Here comes Peter Cottontail {pintrest party}

image

This months Girl’s Night/ Pintrest Party was inspired by Rain on a Tin Roof. I just adored her glitter bunny  and i too had pinned the same exact others that she had  gotten inspiration from! (great minds must think alike!)  It is always so much fun to see how each canvas turns out! A few girls painted their bunnies and the others used fabric (which I loved). I had found a ribbon with yellow and gray that was my inspiration for the color pallet. 

{{INSPIRATION}}

 

Supplies:

canvas

bunny template

paint

yarn, for tail

ribbon, for hanging

fabric, ribbon, or paper  to create bunting

I painted yellow stripes, I placed painters tape on the canvas leaving about 3 finger width between each strip of tape, I used a butter yellow and allowed it to dry, then I added a bunch of water to the remnants of the yellow paint and did the stripes between the same tone of yellow, just much lighter.  Then I traced the 2 bunnies with a pencil on my canvas and painted them gray. I made the bunting by cutting various pieces of fabric in triangles and hot glued them on the twine. I used yarn to make the fluffy tail and used leftover fabric, cut it into 3 stripes and braided it to make a really different kind of hanger. I adore how it turned out!!
