Feels Like Home (Craft)

It's been a LONG time since I've posted any type of crafty/DIY post! Too long! As I am working on decorating my house, I've got some great projects in mind, I'm sure I will share in time as I share the progress of my decorating efforts, but I wanted to share with you my favorite project so far:



If you've followed this blog for long, this frame might look familiar. I first posted it here. Somehow the mirror ended up completely falling out of the frame. Rather than trying to reattach, I just decided to re-purpose. I've actually been trying to figure out what to do with it for AGES now...I debated a chalkboard, jewelry holder...so many ideas. But while searching for some decor ideas at Michael's for my bathroom, I stumbled upon this unfinished wooden birdcage and my decision was made! I think I have mentioned previously that I LOVE birds (particularly simple silhouettes like this and love birds). When we moved I decided I wanted to bring that into our bedroom a bit. I also wanted to incooperate our song, Feels Like Home. I think this project did both very well, and I'm so happy with the outcome!

The best part about this project, it was super easy! (Not to mention super cheap! About $10 total!). For the background I simply used poster board, painting tape and acrylic craft paint. This was the hardest part: getting the stripes straight! As I said, the bird cage was found with the wood crafts and all I had to do on that was paint it! And then I used stencils for the lettering. See, easy and cheap! I have big ideas but not the craftiness to back them up, so projects like this are my favorite!! I hope you all enjoy!
