Monday Made It : Pinspired

Hi friends. It has been FOR*EV*ER (I just channeled my inner Sandlot voice). I have lots of reasons I haven't blogged in about a year but I'll save those for another post. Today, I'll start simple and link up with 4th Grade Frolics with a Monday Made It post!!

The hubs and I are getting ready to sell our house and we have been working REALLY hard to get the house ready. I am not a decorator - it stresses me out when I walk into stores with decor... I want everything but I don't know where it should go, what it matches, etc... So, our house was pretty bare and I wanted to add some small touches to make it feel warm and inviting.

First up, a 5 minute pinspired table runner. Literally, walked into Hobby Lobby, bought the two widths of burlap ribbon, laid it on the table and cut to fit. A simple $10 project that makes a nice impact when you enter our home!

Secondly, a pinspired wreath for the front door. I bought 2 green flowers, one cream rose and a wooden initial. It took me all of 10 minutes to add the flowers with floral wire and glue on the letter!

There you have it, Monday made-it pinspired edition. Hopefully I can get my groove back and make some classroom stuff too.
