Getting Craftier Week by Week

I joined ASC in the second week of her closet craftiness or closet crafty challenge as I've been calling it.  This week we made name boards!  Go check hers out here she did a great job and includes a tutorial which I followed. 

I was actually really excited for this one because my sister in law is expecting so this was the perfect opportunity to make her something special and personalized and it was so easy!  

 I went with a small oval shape and painted it with acrylic paint and then I cut out scrapbook paper and decoupaged it to the top of the oval, I painted the letters and then glued them right on.  I opted to use a ribbon instead of attaching backing because I thought it was fun! 

My only lessons for next time are shinier mod podge (not matte) and maybe not trying to attempt to cute a perfect oval with my kitchen scissors but other than that I think it turned out great!


  1. Great job! It really did come out well. I love the name Avery. That's my little cousins name and it's adorable.

    There are so many craft projects I want to try. After the holidays, I need to start making some time for it.

  2. That's great! I'm totally not crafty enough to make that!

  3. That's so cute! I'm going to work on my cooking first before I work on my crafting ;)
