It snowed here yesterday, but that didn’t stop me from trying to Spring-ify my front porch.
I am so ready for some warm weather!!
I started off with my front door.
I had a unfinished wood frame in my garage, so I pulled that out. My inspiration for this door hanging is this beautiful chevron fabric I found on Fabric.com – I’m a little obsessed with it right now.
I used the same stencil that I also used for my Spring Chevron Subway Art.
First I painted the frame white and then I stenciled the chevron pattern on the wood.
Super easy. Then I made a few fabric rosettes – I have a tutorial for those if you want to make some. And then I thought it would be fun to make a part in the middle of the frame where I can spell out different things.
So I printed off some words using this beautiful new paper from LifestyleCrafts (they are the people that also make the Epic LetterPress – more on that at the bottom). I love this paper. It has a sheen to it. So pretty!
(and it’s on sale this week)
I also added some pretty Washi Paper to the outside of the frame:
I printed off a few different sayings that I can switch out. Hello.
I attached a piece of ribbon to the inside of the frame with hot glue. And then I used these cute teeny tiny clothespins from Canvas Corp. The last thing I did was added some ribbon at the top to hang it on my door.
I love how my door hanging goes along with the little canvas pennant I made a few weeks ago. I put on a little table by my front door.
And coming up tomorrow afternoon – Part 2 of my porch!!
