Made it Monday and a Sale!

Happy 4th of July Celebrations! I am super excited to enjoy a cookout with some friends tonight! I need to get out of this house before I go crazy!

I am linked up in the Made it Monday Linky Party at 4th Grade Frolics and I am offering a sale on ALL my TpT products today and tomorrow ONLY! Everything in my store is 15% off for the holiday!

As for my Made it Monday item, I made a door hanger (I actually made it last year, but I couldn't resist sharing it because it's just so darling!).

I bought a piece of wood, wire, the cute flower, and ribbon from Hobby Lobby. All for less than $5.00!!

I painted the wood with blue acrylic paint and added the green spots. I had to put several coats of paint to hide the wood. And because I'm so impatient I used a hair dryer to dry the paint! It's a great trick to dry paint quickly if you can't wait to see your finished product like me!

As for my name, I found a font I liked and I eyeballed it with a paint pen. I was very happy at how well my name turned out since I wrote it by hand!

To finish the piece, I hot glued the flower to the front and the wire to the back and added a cute polka dot ribbon, and TA DA it's FINISHED!

Be sure to check out my latest items in my Tpt store. E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G is 15% off!
