Home is where the ART is.

I love finding new ways to use paper!
I made these fun wooden plaques using the $1 wood ovals from Michaels.
I painted the sides with dark brown and then used hot glue on the front to paste down my favorite Cosmo Cricket Gretel paper.  I sanded the paper to give it a good edge, flush with the wood and to antique it a bit.
The letters were cut from my Cricut and then decorated with lots of little flowers, ribbon and buttons.
I stapled some gingham ribbon on the back of each piece of wood when I was finished.
It’s a fun, easy project, and a great way to display your favorite paper patterns.
