Cheery

Now that the warm weather has FINALLY arrived, I feel... Cheery. That seems like the right word. It also seems like the right word to describe my new front porch display.



You should make one.  
I wrapped a wreath with sackcloth, hot glued on some flowers and sewed a tiny bunting (you could make a paper one). I bought a gold frame and used a dry brush technique to paint it. You simply dip your brush in paint and wipe it on a piece of cardboard until most the paint is off, then swipe it across the frame. It should leave some of the gold from underneath and give it a distressed look without all the work of a stain.
