Family Wall Hanging

I never said I was creative- just crafty.  Occasionally.

I'm really not great at coming up with my own ideas.  Instead, I often just copy things that I find in blog-land.  I do usually try to put my own spin on projects, but when I saw this "Family" wall hanging at Dittle Dattle, I pretty much loved everything about it.

It's beautiful- so I made my own.  I used my own font, but everything else down to the color scheme is pretty much the same.
Oh- here's something else different.  Carrie used leftover molding, and, well, I didn't have any molding.  So I bought this wood at Michael's for about 87 cents a board.  I needed three pieces to complete my project.


I cut the boards into uneven pieces- mine were 2 each at 6 1/2, 5 1/2, and 5 inches long and the wood was about 4 inches in width.


Mod Podge the paper on.  I am loving black and white these days.


Apply Vinyl.  I used the "Harrington" font on my Silhouette to cut the letters.



Attach ribbon with hot glue.  I wanted mine to hang at the same level so the ribbon length varied.


Finished!  Now all I need is a black curtain rod- or some black spray paint- to get this baby up on my wall.  Thanks again, Carrie for the inspiration!
