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!
