Photo Pedestal

I've seen many versions of these photo displays floating around blog land.  But I finally got around to making my own.  I bought a 2x8 at Home Depot and had it cut into 7 inch pieces.  I also picked up the clip, small candlestick, round wood piece, finials and paper flowers at Hobby Lobby.  I gave them all a coat of Dark Walnut stain.

Then I just hot glued all the pieces together with a high temp glue gun.

I made a ton of these.  I think they would be perfect for a birthday or Christmas gift as well.  You can display a photo, recipe, saying, or reminder card, lots of uses.

This is a printable I found on someone's blog.  I love this saying.  I don't recall where I got this printable from.  Sorry I can't share the source.  If I find it, I'll be sure to update this post.

USA Glitter Letters

Here is a simple craft project I made last month.  Grab some letters from JoAnn's.

Paint them red, white and blue of course.

Then get some Mod Podge and glitter.

Add a thin layer of Mod Podge and then add the glitter.

Now you have some festive letters to help celebrate 4th of July!!

I just love how they turned out.
