~ New Project ~ Fall Wreath with monogram & burlap!

It won't be long, and it'll be time for cooler weather, pumpkins on our front porch, and pumpkin spice lattes will be back at Starbucks :) 

So let's celebrate the upcoming season with an easy DIY fall wreath made with our very own 3-letter monogram that you can purchase on our website here!

All you need are a few items from your local craft store or Wal-Mart

Step 1: Spray paint your monogram white

Step 2: Cut small strips of floral wire

Step 3: Attach monogram to center of wreath using floral wire
(It's best to have the same color wire as your monogram, so the wire will not show)

Attach the wire in several spots around the wreath for reinforcement

Step 3: Prep the burlap for the bow
First, stretch out the burlap and tie a bow in the middle leaving long strands on both sides
The longer your strands, the more full your bow will be

Step 4: Begin making loops with the long strands and tying them with the wire

Repeat until all strands are looped and tied
I used hot glue to keep loops in place

Step 5: Attach bow to wreath with wire and hot glue

Congrats! You just put together the easiest wreath ever!
Now hang it up on your front door and treat yourself to a pumpkin spice latte :)

Ten Commandments Bulletin Board

This week's inspiration project is a Ten Commandments bulletin board made using our unfinished wooden numbers!

We used 6" numbers for the "10" and 3" numbers to number the commandments.

We used a chevron stencil to spray paint the 6" numbers in yellow and white, and black spray paint for the numbers 1-10.

These numbers are 3/8" thick and lightweight enough to use on cardboard bulletin boards without weighing down the board.

Attach numbers to board using a hot glue gun and you're done!

Looks great in our Children's Church room!!
