In George Michael's Words...

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. :)

  2. I love this. I don't have much for Easter either, at least not what I'd like and have been thinking in those terms too- crosses, faith, etc. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Your so right! I have alot of Easter, not surprising for a decorating beast like me! However, I am going to make a Faith banner for my doorway! Thanks for the thought and inspiration, I feel bad I never thought sooner and was wrapped up in the frivolous part of the day. Lori

  9. Hi there--a friend sent me a link to your blog a few months ago. You some of the greatest ideas and crafts. I really enjoy seeing what you make up next. Your sewing skills are so spectular--I'm a sewer and a quilted, but I'm nowhere close to the truly beautiful things you make. You have a brilliant eye for colors and patterns--such a beautiful gift. Thank you for sharing your talents.
