I’m not really too crafty but lately I have done a couple of things worth sharing. I’m definitely not a perfectionist, which I’m sure you’ll notice, but this particular craft session was for our home and I don’t really mind if it’s perfection.
We really like music around here, but who doesn’t. One song in particular played on our record player has always stood out as such a sweet song. Our House (I recommend listening to this while you read this post, don’t have to but just a suggestion!). This was my inspiration for my craft session. Here’s what I did:
- Picture frames (thrift store)
- Spray paint
- Embroidery Thread and needle
- Hot Glue
Next I used the glass from the frames to measure the fabric size for each frame.
Next I worked on the words I would put in each frame. This tutorial inspired me to hand stitch my words. I didn’t do this for every word because I was too impatient and just wanted to finish all of it and hang it up on the wall. It’s good to practice a few times on paper before writing on the fabric.
After hand stitching a few words, I found some stickers to use!
My husband was out of town while I was doing this little project. I wanted to hurry and finish it before he got home and I just wanted to be done. Being a little bit of a perfectionist might have come in handy for this. I think when I was getting closer to being done I wanted to be finished even more.
Overall I think it turned out well. We like it and that’s what matters!
