Ya Gotta Have Faith...
I know Easter if still 2 months away, but Easter is the only holiday where I don't have a lot of decorations for. I have been thinking a lot about that and I keep coming back to the Easter Bunny and Easter eggs. Well, let's face it, neither of those things have anything to do with the true meaning of Easter. And, while some cutesy Easter stuff is ok, I want to display something with a bit more meaning.
Easter is a time for FAITH. It does not matter what religious background you come from, or what you believe. You believe the way you do because you have FAITH that that is the truth.
So, tonight I came up with this...
a FAITH wall hanging.
I started out with MDF board, cut to size.
I painted the edges and in about an inch around all the edges.
I cut the paper that I wanted to use to size. I used two different papers, a solid card stock and a patterned paper. I used Mod Podge to put the paper on the MDF.
Cut out my letters and embellished the blocks.
I drilled a hole in the top and bottom of each block and used twine to connect the blocks. This can be tricky getting each side even! Be patient with this step!
I now have FAITH in my house. :)
