Good morning! We are having some beautiful weather today, at least until the next rain storm comes in. But that’s okay, we need it! Are you ready for Valentine’s Day? I know my preschoolers are very excited. We hope to be able to have some fun tomorrow at school.
This weather feels like spring, so I thought I would start a spring project. I still have quite a few pieces of this painted wood and I found some scrabble-like letters in my scrapbooking stash, so I decided to put them together. I came up with some spring-like words and tried to keep them about the same length, but some are longer than others. I started by laying them out on the board.
I figured out I would need 3 inches between the bottom of one line of letters and the top of the next. I used a ruler and drew lines across so I would know where to line up the letters.
I added a line of glue just below the pencil line and started gluing on letters, making sure they were centered. I didn’t measure for the center, I just eyeballed it, but you can certainly do that.
total aside: I did change the spelling of blossoms!
I had some blank spots where I had to fill in, so I found some cute spring flowers from my scrapbooking stash too and after playing with it for a bit, found the right combinations. I ended up using only the yellow and pink.
I placed it on my mantle with a cute little bird who is ready for spring too!
I made the spring banner a couple of years ago and thought is was the perfect touch across the window.
Have you started projects for spring yet? Or done any decorating? I am more than ready for the heavenly sunshine! I hope you all have a great week!
