Made-it Monday

Welcome to the very first installment of Made-it Monday! I am going to try and do this or something similar to this each week (different days of the week will have different titles). Who knows, maybe I’ll even get motivated to do a couple fun installments each week! This week, I am starting off really simple. I took down my Christmas decorations this weekend (sad!) and put up the Valentine’s decorations. I had to change up the picture above my seasonal table to match the Valentine d├ęcor. So, my feature for Made-it Monday is the cute little banner on the top of the picture.

The banner adds such a fun touch. I used my cricut to cut out the letters in all sorts of pink scrap papers and to cut hearts out of scrap paper that matches the frame on the table. After attaching the letters and hearts with hot glue to Jute twine (one of my favorite things ever!), I taped it to the back of the frame to hold it in place. If you don’t have a cricut or die cutting machine, most craft stores sell pre-cut letters that would work as well.

Here is a shot of the Valentine’s Day table:

I am loving the blue with the reds and pinks. My favorite thing on the table is the fab blue bowl I got at an antique store that is housing some red Christmas beads.
