Pinterest is cool n’ all… but sometimes it just feels good to get out from behind a screen and away from the virtual pin board. To cut real paper with real scissors and pin real pins into a real board. It’s kind of like reading a real life book with real pages that smell like an old library as opposed to swiping your finger across glass to turn the page. It just FEELS better.
So I decided to get back to my collaging roots. I used to be a big collager in middle school… we’re talking expert status. Binders, notebooks, lockers… you name it, I collaged it. This here is peanuts and a sad excuse for a collage if you ask me. But I only had nap time and how long I have until he wakes up is like a ticking time bomb. So I’ll take what I can get.
Inspired by the tiny gold jewels, loose fitting boho-wear, braids and white-white-white.
Also, if you are looking for a SUPER SIMPLE diy project to make a statement, this wall piece is your gal. All you need is yarn, a stick. Bam. That’s ALL.
1. Cut your yarn to double the length you want it to hang.
2. Take the end of each piece and put them together so you are doubling up your yarn.
3. Hold the looped end and take it over the front of the piece of wood, around the back and pull the loose ends through loop. Pull snug. “Knot” should be in front.
4. When finished, cut the bottom in any shape you like. Viola! Easy Peasy.
If you decide to make one, or already have, I’d love to see the finished product! Tag me in your Instagram photos so I can see!
