DIY Projects

Happy Friday!
As you may or may not know there is only 71 days till Christmas. Yes, I said it, 71 days. I can't believe the year is about to end soon. Amazing!

Well, I have a very A type personality and I am very organized as well. I have a list to do before Thanksgiving and Christmas. Here are some of my DIY projects I have finished.

This swag had some gaps, so I added ribbon to hide them.
I used floral wire to wrap the ribbon. 

You can see peeks of the ribbon.

I have this hanging over the fireplace, but come Thanksgiving it will be part of the center piece. Pic to follow
The iron design I had for a while and just got tired of the color. 
 I took my lovely Red Banner Krylon paint spray and went to town. I love red!

Just the right amount of pop of color to make it stand out on the wall. 
What do you think? I love comments, so drop me a line. Do you remember those sprayed painted plates I did a while back? Well, I am finishing those up and will be posting them soon. Thank you for stopping by and have a Bless weekend.
