Hello all you The Happy Scraps readers! I feel like I’ve been missing around here for so long that I need to introduce myself again. lol! Hi I’m Amy and I blog here on The Happy Scraps. 🙂 I’m glad you’re here. Okay, enough of that, right? 🙂
A couple of months ago, I saw this on Pinterest. I knew then that I wanted to make one. Well, I hadn’t gotten around to it and last night, I was struggling with one of my kids behavior (back talking, arguing, being disrespectful, etc.), so I pulled out a frame, sanded it quickly and took it out for a coat of spray paint. I didn’t even prime it. I was out of primer, and wanted it get this done as soon as possible. I didn’t get back to it until today though, so while my boys were at school I sat down and was determined to finish it before they got home. This is what I came up with.
I ruffled and folded and sewed a couple pieces of ribbon, and then hot glued them to the frame. I didn’t want to do flowers, because I have four boys. I’m still trying to decide if it all looks too girly. :/
I added some buttons to the top, and then cut the vinyl out with my Cricut using the Stamped cartridge and put it on. When I was putting the names on, I got the spacing a little off, so I was left with a weird gap in the middle. I threw the little squares in there to fill the space. I’m still trying to decide if it’s just weird. lol. I put some burlap in the frame for the background. I was looking for something light colored and neutral, and burlap is what I had.
