How’s it Hangin’

Hi friends!  Things have been a little crazy this past week.  I coach at a competitive cheerleading gym and two of Whitney’s girls cheer there.  We had our Nationals competition this past weekend and although it was so fun, we have been drained!  I told you I would share how I put my DIY Wall Art up on the wall so here’s a quick tutorial for ya’ll!
I started with this metal piece from the garden section at Hobby Lobby.  I used a coupon so it was about $3.00.
I spray painted it with Rust-Oleum Blue Sky spray paint and then roughed it up with my 3M sanding block.
Next, I used a piece of scrap burlap and cut it into a square.  Then I folded it in half to make a triangle.
I rolled it up…
and secured it with a dab of hot glue.
Next, I folded the burlap roll in half and secured with another dab of hot glue.
I pushed a hanging nail through the middle of the burlap
Pushed it through the wall…
and nailed the ends of the burlap roll to the wall as well.
Next, I used a saw tooth hanger, purchased at Hobby Lobby, to hange the Wall Art.  I just used one because I didn’t feel like lining up two of them:)
So there it is:)  I hope you all like it!  This entire piece cost me $3.00 and that was just for the iron decoration!  Happy Friday and have a safe weekend!

    Fabulous – dontcha just love the Lob?

    (I used a 40% coupon today for fabric stiffener that never seems to go on sale. Score!)

    I really like ironwork – what a great piece. And, such a creative use.

    Thanks for sharing!
