Last week it was time for another ‘Do it yourself!’ project. Good friends of mine moved into their family home a few weeks ago and invited us to their house-warming party. They didn’t want to receive any gifts but I had an idea 🙂
I made a name plate for their house door. (Hopefully this is the right word for it?!)
I used a small flake board as underground and covered the surface with gloss varnish which is water and weather resistant. Than I coloured the small wooden letters in a bright red and let them dry. Later I covered them with the varnish too. In a crafts store I bought this little cute green fence and the white blossoms made of cotton. To fix everything on the surface I used my hot glue gun. At the end I painted these two birds on top of the fence with acrylic paint and covered them with varnish. Finally I drilled two little holes through the flake board at the top and fastened a ribbon so that my friends can hang up the name plate.
Hope you like this idea and that I maybe inspired you for doing something similar 😉
PS: My friends don’t live in a villa .. this is just a joke among friends.
