Create a Blessings Board w/YMH!

Hey y'all! I am back with my second post for the day & this time I'm really shaking it up a bit by going out of my comfort zone! This week I am gonna share with you an easy to create Blessings Board featuring some yummy products from the Your Memories Here Store. Not only this is a great decor item for Thanksgiving, you can also change it out a little as far as the background goes to make it suitable for Christmas Blessings, Spring Blessings, etc. All you need for this scrappy little project is an old frame, a little spray paint, hot glue, some scrap fabric, vintage buttons, Prima pearls & bling, & some amazing Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist & Glam. The great about this project is also that it is a great one for recycling...items you can repurpose from around the house or pick up at your local thrift store.

I started with an old framed print - I took it apart & spray painted it a lovely yellow with some Krylon I had in my stash, but that I picked up for $2 at Hobby Lobby. Next, I used some Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam in Copper to rub in the crevices & add a little sparkle, as well as depth. While that was drying, I used some lovely blue glassine paper from Martha Stewart (picked up for $1 @ Hobby Lobby awhile back) to cover the cardboard & simply used tape to adhere so it would be easy to change out when I'm ready. Next, I gathered up scrap fabric & ribbon, then simply rolled them into rosettes while hot gluing along the way. After the rosettes were done, I gave them a good spritz of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Pearl & then added some Prima pearls, Prima crystals, & vintage buttons from my stash. I adhered the rosettes with hot glue to the frame (after reassembling it & adding the glass back in, of course) and then spritzed some Martha Stewart (picked these up for 50 cents last year!) leaves with some more Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Sand & Fall Breeze. I adhered those with hot glue as well, tied on a pretty ribbon, & hung it in my newly painted hall below THIS PROJECT of me & the hubby. Easy peasy my peeps!

Now, I can simply write on the glass with a dry erase marker & wipe it away whenever I want to change it! I love having this where I can always see it...making me that much more aware of how much I truly have to be thankful well, it makes it easy to write down a blessing as soon as I get the urge - or for anyone else in the family to do so, too. These have been popping up all over the web lately & I am so glad I gave one a go! I hope you pop on over to the Your Memories Here Store to pick up some awesome Prima & Tattered Angels products, as well as check out all of the other rockin' products. And definitely check out the clearance/sale items...they are awesome! You can also visit the YMH DT blog HERE. Thanks so much for stopping by & I hope to be back soon with another crafty post! Until then, Happy Craftin'!
