Do you ever buy something even when you know you could actually make it yourself?
Sometimes I'm just not in the mood for crafting but I want something now?
Sometimes I'm just feeling lazy :)
Sometimes I just can't quite put the idea together in my mind, but someone else already did!
This project is kind of in the middle. I bought some things to help me put it together, but then I actually had to put it together.
Just call it lazy crafting. Or semi-homemade.
I wanted a wall banner to hang in my newly painted bathroom. But I didn't want to use paper because I knew the moisture would make it curl. And I really just did not want to break out the saw and make my husband cut some shapes for me make my own.
So I headed to Hobby Lobby and bought these heavy chipboard banner shapes. I went for the two pointed kind.
Then, amazingly, I found paper that perfectly matched the colors of my bathroom!
All I had to do was trace the banner shapes onto the paper, cut the paper to fit, then glue the paper to the banner. I finished with a coat of Mod Podge to "seal" it against the bathroom moisture.
Finally, I hung it with some gray yarn to match the tiny bit of gray in the room.
I'm in love with it! Hanging a banner on the wall instead of fancy art makes it feel more whimsical- perfect for a kids' bathroom.
What is your favorite craft shortcut? Tell me your lazy stories so I don't feel alone ;)
