Silver Tray “Welcome” Sign

Posted by on Aug 7, 2012 in Daisy's room, yard sale | 8 comments

So, my oldest daughter starts school tomorrow!

I do not know if I am ready for the 5:30 wake-up.

Thank goodness for coffee!

I think I might have to treat myself to some yummy creamer. . .

Peppermint Mocha is always my splurge.

I hope to paint her room this week.

My goal is for her room to be complete in the next 2 weeks.

We have been taking it slow.

There was just too much summer fun to be had!

Now, it is time to get it in gear!

Here is a quick, cheap little craft for her door.

I picked up this tray at a yard sale on Saturday for 25 cents.

I think I am going to start carrying a magnet in my pocket.

I never know what is going to be magnetic and what is not?

I guess I did not pay enough attention in Science class?!

I was thrilled to find out that this one is magnetic.

I added some twine for a hanger.

Then, I backed it with fleece to keep it from hitting the door so hard.

I just used hot glue.

It seems to hold well.

I made a flower magnet.

I started with a couple of crocheted flowers that I had already made.

(A great way to use scraps of yarn.)

I learned how to make them from a great video tutorial from Little Birdie Secrets.

You can watch it here.

(Or, you can buy them at the craft store!)

I added a button and a felt leaf.

I hot glued them all together and glued a magnet to the back.

Daisy used her Cameo and rubber stamps to make a “welcome” sign.

The other side says, “Please knock.”

She is old enough that she is ready for a little privacy from her younger sisters!

Off to another Open House for my 2 younger girls!

Life to the full to you!
