While the bunting craze has been all over blogland, it hasn’t hit me as something I was interested in trying. It’s cute and cheerful, but I’m not really into cute and I would never be described as cheerful. I think of it the same way I think of those bootie shoes that are so hot. They look really cute on other people, but definitely not me.
But the theme this week on One Month To Win It is “Bunting & Banners.” As a judge I have to come up with a sample project, which was hard since it seems like it’s all been done before. But then a bolt of lightening or something must have struck me because I got an idea and I LOVE it. Love with a capitol L-O-V-E.
That empty frame over my couch (you know, the one I change all of the time and it drives my family crazy) was ready for a new filler, so I made a bunting with old books. Then I thought it would be perfect for ♥ Valentine’s Day ♥ and I added some love words.
So sweet, so loving, so easy and completely FREE!
I drilled holes in the corners of the books with my drill. It took like, 10 seconds.
Then I used baling wire from our hay bales to string the books together and to hold them open. And of course, my beloved Cricut cut the letters.
I asked all of the children if any of them knew what “je t’aime” means. No one knew. Who teaches these kids anyway?
Oh well, now I have some bunting. But you still won’t catch me dead in those bootie shoes.
One change at a time is all I can handle.
