Home Decor Blog hop...



Thanks for hopping this far!

It's a huge hop today!!

I hope that you started with Faith's blog. She is the beginning of our hop.

You should have hopped here from Erin's blog.

Now on to my project. {there's a funny story behind it.}

I have been thinking for days on what to make. Lots of ideas running through my head. I wanted to make something new and exciting. Problem was I just could not get excited about anything. I wanted to make some thing that would just make you say WOW. Could not think of anything.

Then as I'm making this sign to hang on Jordan's bedroom door.

{still trying to figure out what to make}

A little light bulb goes off!


This IS home decor!!

Not the super fancy, make you say WOW project I had planned.

But, This IS going to be hanging in my home.

I started with a 6x9 piece of chip board.

covered it with paper

punched 2 holes and tied my ribbon

cut out "Jordan" with the cricut

glued on the letters


Simple and great project that is going to hang on her door.

Plus every time she slams her door I don't have to worry

about her breaking it because it's just paper!!

Now head over to Kimmarie's blog and check out her project!!
