Yes, cardboard, that is exactly what I used to make this little spring sign for our front door! I have been working on and off on this project for like 3 weeks now. Even though, it was super easy to make, I just did parts of it here and there. It was made from stuff I had laying around the house and I think most crafters have these things laying around too.
Let me show you how easy and cheap this was to do!
Hot and Tacky Glue
Last week I shared how I made the bow, so easy!
The frame I used had been sitting in my craft closet forever and was hot pink, it was a little too bright, so I painted it light blue. Well, I painted it outside and totally forgot to bring it in, and of course it rained that night! I brought it in the next day and looked it over.. and it actually looked kind of cool! A for real weathered look ;) I loved how the pink showed through too! It's funny how accidents can turn out to be better than you intended.
I just love how it came out!! I originally wanted it to say welcome, but I really didn't want to buy more letters, so I just used some letters I had.
I love how the burlap is see through, so it makes it a little lighter and airier, it reminds me of a screen door. And how the bunnies have that texture to them. LOVE!
This was so simple!! And the possibilities are endless with the cardboard, you could make a chick or a letter, stars for the 4th, or anything you can think of. I will definitely be using this again in future projects.
I'm so happy Spring is here, it means, garage sales, spray paint, picnics (alright, I really don't go on that many picnics but I vow to this year, ok?) ;)
