How's it Hangin'

Hi friends!  Things have been a little crazy this past week.  I coach at a competitive cheerleading gym and two of Whitney's girls cheer there.  We had our Nationals competition this past weekend and although it was so fun, we have been drained!  I told you I would share how I put my DIY Wall Art up on the wall so here's a quick tutorial for ya'll!


I started with this metal piece from the garden section at Hobby Lobby.  I used a coupon so it was about $3.00.

I spray painted it with Rust-Oleum Blue Sky spray paint and then roughed it up with my 3M sanding block.

Next, I used a piece of scrap burlap and cut it into a square.  Then I folded it in half to make a triangle.

I rolled it up...

and secured it with a dab of hot glue.

Next, I folded the burlap roll in half and secured with another dab of hot glue.

I pushed a hanging nail through the middle of the burlap

Pushed it through the wall...

and nailed the ends of the burlap roll to the wall as well.


Next, I used a saw tooth hanger, purchased at Hobby Lobby, to hange the Wall Art.  I just used one because I didn't feel like lining up two of them:)




So there it is:)  I hope you all like it!  This entire piece cost me $3.00 and that was just for the iron decoration!  Happy Friday and have a safe weekend!

Fabulous - dontcha just love the Lob?

(I used a 40% coupon today for fabric stiffener that never seems to go on sale. Score!)

I really like ironwork - what a great piece. And, such a creative use.

Thanks for sharing!
