The two banners were made from craft paper and gray yarn. Just used some hot glue to attach them- relatively easy, except for the whole burning the thumb process. The gray yarn, is the same yarn, that I used to wrap the over sized letter “D”, for the life-preserver wreath, and the small wood letter “N”. The yarn was under 99 cents with a 40% off coupon I had from Hobby Lobby. I didn’t buy one thing, including the invitations, at full-price. They were all either in my possession from teaching, or were bought with one of many 40%/50% off coupons at Michaels and Hobby Lobby over the course of three months(plan ahead of time to reduce overall cost).
This project consisted of going through picture books(easy), cutting a bunch of scrapbook paper(easy), and pinning them both to a board I had from teaching(easy). All-in-all, this project was extremely time-consuming, but well worth it for me. I loved how it turned out and I plan on saving all of the pieces for baby 2…
Ahhhh cursive…. why did we need to learn you? AHA- for writing ineligibly on a chalkboard. PERFECT!

Jar of Rocks- Come from a beach with a ton of family memories.
Heart garland from paint sample swatches… YEP. “D” with wrapped yarn. Re-used bottle from cooking that we painted with food coloring.
There should be a warning sign that says, “MUCH HARDER THAN IT LOOKS.” Seriously. I almost had a break down…. had to call my mom and ask, “REALLY?!? HOW CAN IT BE THIS HARD?! THEY KEEP TANGLING!!!”
Crab got my lip… perhaps this is lack of sleep? No?
