Today I was going to the garage to get something for a different project when I had a moment of inspiration...
So, I set to work, and yes, I totally dropped my other project...in. the. dust. Don't worry, I'll get back to it...eventually =).
They were actually really simple to make and I will show you how, just don't ask me what those metal things are...I am working on it (meaning I will take one to Homedepot and ask someone), but my kids have been out of school, see this Post, and that means running to the store is not happening. They start back tomorrow so I can update the post then....I just had to post these right away!
Dual-sided Message Center. I got a whole box of them at one of my "free wood" scores on craig's list. The people were moving and getting rid of stuff and willingly gave them to me. I thought they might be useful someday, and I was right! (adding it to the hoard, my poor husband!)
*Update* I went to Home Depot today and discovered what the mystery metal pieces are. They are called brick ties, and they are used to help secure bricks to the structure they are being installed on, helping to hold the bricks in place (at least that is what I understood from what the nice guy said =). I took a picture for you (I like the pattern on these too, totally looks like chevron!).
If you noticed in the first photo with the metal pieces all in a row there were some twist ties. Those are important to have, I tried using regular wire and it didn't work, it was too thick.
I went outside and found a stick, cut it into three pieces with a hack saw to make the stems. I used a little hot glue to secure them into place, and added some ribbon! All done!
Do you have fall pumpkins in your home?
Thanks for stopping by, please come again!
