A cute little project...


Just wanted to share a quick little project. I was inspired by Andrea and Cherry to create this little plaque. I found the "family" magnet at Michael's. I would have loved to use some toile (of course!) but I opted instead for the upholstery webbing that I found at Walmart for only 69 cents a yard! I love the texture and color. I simply hot glued it to a piece of cardboard, then hot glued the magnet and skeleton key on top and VOILA! So pretty.
Happy Crafting~

Nothing jazzes something up like a little skeleton key, I always have them on hand. This little frame is adorable.

Now that is cute! Where do you find the skeleton key? Is it a real old one?
When I was a child, for a few years we lived in an old house that actually used a skeleton key...the locks had never been changed.

Looks great! So simple. I will have to try that...I can see this for Christmas and using them in the bathroom...(i guess i see this because our bathrooms hardly see any holiday decor)

Love it, love it, LOVE it!
I have so many empty frames kicking around. I see them and buy them - just waiting for the right picture.

Super easy, super FAB!
Nice one, Wendy!

That really turned out cute!! I think I like that burlap-esque texture better than toile. WHO KNEW??

That is just too darn cute! I love the fabric - it has great texture and looks all burlap-y. :)

What a cute idea. I LOVE jute webbing... I used it to tie up the curtains in my room.
