I picked up this little piece of picket fence at a garage sale for $1.00. I loved it, and I was sure I wanted to use it, maybe more than once. I kept it out in my craft room where I could look at it and be inspired to know just what to do with it. Every time I looked at it, I thought it should speak to me. But no. It remained silent. Stubbornly silent. As time went by, it's silence became highly annoying to me. Off to Pinterest I went to see what I could do with a piece of fence for the 4th of July. This is what I found:
Now if you click on that source link above, you'll find out that it takes you to "Flag Patterned Fence Swag" by none other than Martha Stewart. I was disappointed in Pinterest. Really? All of the great craft blogs out there and you served me up a reliable stand by? But, I had indeed fallen in love with this look and so, I was going with it. Of course, I thought I could do it better. I know, it's brazen of me to think that, and probably some kind of an abomination to even put it in print, but there ya go.
I was going to do a tutorial on this project but then I thought, "Hey! With the click of a button, I can make Martha do it!" So if you want to know how to make this, just click HERE . Now that is some serious blog power!
I don't guess I'll have my own magazine, TV show or fan club anytime soon......but I've got a blog and some awesome followers and a few ideas of my own.
I may be linking up to any or all of these fine parties:
