You are loved always

Back in the Spring, I made this sign for my little girls' nursery.  It's a large sign that measures 24"x30".
I used 1x4's to make it, and just screwed them all together with a couple pieces of 1x4's on the back.  I painted the boards a linen color and then wiped stain around the edges of the boards and across the top in spots.  Then I used my vinyl as a stencil and painted the lettering in black.  After I pulled the vinyl off, I was tickled with how it turned out.  My friend Ralphie made one with me, with a slightly different layout and wording, and her's turned out super cute too!  I love happy crafting days!

Sisters Banner Frame

I made this banner for my girls room.  I bought double pointed pennants from Hobby Lobby and used Mod Podge and fabric to cover them.  I cut Sisters out of black vinyl and put it directly onto the fabric after the Mod Podge was dry.  Then I strung it across a really large frame I had painted to match their furniture. In each pennant, I poked two holes to make it easier to string them, and hung them on bakers twine.  It looks so cute hanging over their bedroom door and fills the entire space so nicely.  :)
