PosterBoard Letters

I made this sweet message for my hubby yesterday for our anniversary.
[I found the posterboard at the DollarTree Dollar store for $0.50 each.
That's better than Walmart's price. I always love a Great deal!]

Lasting Candle

Here's a quick tip to make your favorite candle last a lot longer: 
after you have burned it down a bit add a tealight (regular one or a battery operated one) to the center.
I love the fall weather. Perfect time for candles and hot chocolate.

Conference Door Sign

I made this cute Conference Sign to hang on our door this weekend for General Conference.
I just bought a frame(2"x3") at the second hand store($0.50), painted it & drilled holes for the ribbon.

Fall Fabric Ribbon Garland

As we are counting down the days til General Conference, I thought it would be great to have something to hang all the pictures of the Apostles and First Presidency. 
I have the 8x10 pictures but to hang on this garland I used these. I punched out a tab to put in between the picture sheet and info sheet(double stick tape). I added extra to the clothespin by using glitter puffy paint, then spray a clear coat in gloss over the whole thing and then write the name in a sharpie marker.
Attach the pictures onto the garland with the clothespins.

How to make the Fabric Ribbon Garland:
Cut strips of fabric (I did 3 different colors in T-shirt, 8 printed cotton=1/2 yard each one, & tuelle)into 1 1/2"x21".
With the tuelle spool I cut the length to match the fabric strip(21") then cut it in 1/2. I only put the tuelle with the coordinating printed cotton fabric NOT the T-shirt material. it is a little wider than the fabric strip.
Layer the tuelle then the fabric over your "base" ribbon.
Tie a single knot.
 Slide the knotted fabric to combine with the other ones. Keep going in your pattern until you reach your desired length.( I did ours to fit our fireplace =8')
