Today we are excited to be kicking off a fun new series here At The Picket Fence!
We know that you are busy, busy, busy! And as much as you love to craft and DIY it can be hard to find time between work, and soccer games and laundry and cooking dinner to sit down and actually create something!
Now, don’t get us wrong we love creating more ellaborate projects BUT sometimes you just want to make something quick, easy and cute! That’s where our new series…Take 5: Five Minute Crafts comes in! Every FRIDAY we will be sharing a fun but simple craft that ANYONE can make the time to create! Even more exciting…once a month we will have a GUEST BLOGGER visiting to share their FIVE MINUTE CRAFT with you!
Up first, I’m sharing how to make this easy seasonal Magnetic Letter Tray Art!
I just ADORE letters…I’m not sure if it’s the English teacher in me…or the little girl inside who buried herself under the covers with a flashlight every night to read just ONE MORE chapter.
I adore words too and I love them even more when they are made into art. Seriously..what could be prettier than these bronzed and lightly gilded letters…
except maybe bronzed letters on a tarnished silver tray….
how about bronzed letters on a silver tray that spells out words? …a match made in Heaven!
Here’s what you need:
Resin or metal letters (mine were purchased at Hobby Lobby)
A silver or metal tray (you can find great deals at thrift stores and dollar stores)
Hot glue gun and glue sticks
let your imagination lead you! Try some seasonal words like I did, just make sure they will fit on your tray. Words like FALL, AUTUMN, APPLES, LEAVES are perfect.
Don’t forget Christmas and Winter are around the corner. NOEL, JOY, SNOW or HO HO HO are perfect!
and the list goes on…Valentine’s Day (LOVE), Halloween (BOO) so many ways to use this tray all year long!
Stay tuned next week where we will be having a WEEK of PUMPKINS and I’ll be sharing a 5 Minute pumpkin project with you!
We also want to announce the winner of the Libby Foods Slow Cooker Giveaway!
CONGRATULATIONS to Sue Bradford Edwards! She was entry #85 which was tweeting about the giveaway. Sue, we will be in touch!
Wishing you a fabulous Friday! See you back here soon…at the picket fence!
