Happy Day Friends! I’m excited to have a special guest on the blog today…Please welcome Lisa from Mabey She Made It! I was fortunate enough to sit down next to Lisa at SNAP last Spring. I couldn’t believe it- I was secretly hoping to run into her. She has the cutest style…Go check out her sewing tutorials for yourself. Plus she is remodeling a home and sharing her projects (like this one) along the way…
Hello! I’m Lisa Mabey from Mabey She Made It, a DIY, craft, and sewing blog. I’m so excited to be here at One Krieger Chick today because I love so many things about Ariean’s style and pretty much everything she does!
Today I’m sharing a Thankful wall banner that I created for a little wall right by our front door. It’s really narrow, so not much fits here, but I wanted something to greet my visitors and to make this space a little less boring.
This isn’t a super quick project because I customized all the letters differently, but it definitely wasn’t hard. Follow along as I show you how I did it!
- Chipboard rectangles
- Chipboard letters and shapes
- Brown and orange paint
- Assorted autumn scrapbook paper
- Ribbon, string, and buttons for decorating the letters
- Adhesives (Mod Podge and glue dots or hot glue gun)
While I’m not going to do a full tutorial for each letter, I’ll walk you through the basics of how I created the whole door hanging.
- Adhere your scrapbook paper to the front of your chipboard rectangles. Let dry, and trim any excess.
- Cover your chipboard letters with scrapbook paper or by rubbing your letters across an ink pad.
- Tie ribbon or string around some of the letters as desired.
- Adhere the letters to the chipboard squares using glue dots or a hot glue gun.
- Add buttons, chipboard leaves, paper, and other decorations to the rectangles as desired.
- Using a Crop-a-Dile or other strong hole punch, punch holes in each of the four corners of your chipboard rectangles.
- Tie the rectangles together using small lengths of twine or ribbon, and use a longer piece of ribbon to create a hanging loop at the top.
If you like this, I hope you’ll come join me at Mabey She Made It for more fun ideas like these:
And a huge thanks to Ariean for letting me guest post!
