I’ve been inspired by my recent addiction to Pinterest. There’s a gazillion ideals from a gazillion crafty people, but I’m not one of them. I wanted to try my hand at Fall decor´ and with some help of a few Pinners this is what I did.
1. Learned how to wash, iron and cut burlap at OnSuttonPlace.com. I discovered that burlap is messy. Make sure to clean out the lint trap in the dryer when finished. I am still finding pieces of burlap from time to time.
2. I cut the burlap into four 3-inch strips: (Hint: lay the burlap on a table outside to reduce the amount of flying fuzz in your house.)
3. Next, I made bows:
I did the same for the smaller orange 2-inch strips:
4. I made templates ( which look like cats), one large owl and one small owl. I pinned it to this pretty navy blue chevron cloth and cut out one large owl, then four smaller owls.
And this owl inspired my owl for the front door:
The pinner’s is much nicer than mine, but hey, I’m not crafty!
5. Then I really got “crafty” brave…I made four oval-ish bellies and hot glued them to the smaller owls, glued on a monogram, added some eyes and…. drum roll please….
