In addition to painting the doors, I also added some vinyl lettering to the mudroom entry area. I originally bought the vinyl for my glass door piece but it wasn't quite big enough. I think it helps blend the door and the kitchen table with the rest of the house. Here it is....
Last week The Nester featured a wreath and a tree made out of coffee filters. I loved them and knew right away I was going to have to make at least 6 of these! Here is the link for the wreath and trees: http://www.thenester.com/2010/11/making-a-coffee-filter-wreath-and-tree-and-things-of-that-nature.html
And here is my first wreath which was made on a weird foam wreath shape that I won't be using again. I searched my Wal-mart, Hancock Fabrics and Dollar Store but no one had a normal wreath shape that I could use. I finally found the one I used at Hobby Lobby this weekend while I was away with Mr.A.
Of course I didn't take a before picture but you've come to expect that of me, right? I did take a picture of the back of the finished wreath.
I think if I make another one, I will not use quite as many filters. I still need to make a ribbon so I can hang it. If anyone has any blog posts about using ribbon to hang things, I'd love to read it. I also think my next wreath will be white. This was so simple and cheap, I'm sure I will make at least a few more. Stay tuned for my latest finds, I'll be blogging about soon!
