Here is the original idea:
I knew that I wanted to change it up a bit, so here is my final product!
Please ignore the pencil lines still on the wall! I wish I had a better camera, because I swear it looks better in person! But, I am pretty pleased with it. For my first 'craft', I think it turned out alright!
I started by buying the wood letters and painting the sides black. Then I mod-podged scrapbook paper on the wood (red and cream to match our black/cream damask bedspread and red to match our accent pillows and curtains!) Then I bought flowers and glued them together and glued a diamond jewel in the middle and glued them to the letters. I then glued 4 diamond jewels on the letters themselves.
I am hoping that during Christmas break, I will come home EXTRA crafty after hanging out with my mother-in-law!!!!!! :)
*Other life happenings....
I am on THANKSGIVING BREAK!!! We have 9 DAYS OFF of school!!! I couldn't be happier, I needed a break BADLY!!!!
While sitting at home the other night BORED while V worked, I decided that I was going to dye my hair DARK BROWN. I was getting sick of my blonde hair (although, I was happy that it no longer had highlights in it, so minimal upkeep!) But, I decided to change it up and dye it DAAAARK. I am soo excited to see what my students say on Monday!!!!!
Here is a picture of my hair before (blonde!!!)
