Fabric Wall Cross

I have seen this idea circulating on Pinterest and decided to give it a try.  I really love it, I made a few extra for gifts as well.dsc_0855-001

I cut the boards.  It was my first time using the table saw.  Not a scary as I thought. dsc_0832-001

Then I stained them.  After that my hubby did pocket holes on the back with the router. dsc_0835-001

Then I stapled the fabric in place.dsc_0857-001dsc_0858-001dsc_0860-001

I used thick thread to tighten and tie a knot.  I needed help with this to keep it tight. dsc_0862dsc_0861

That’s it.  It took about 1 hour start to finish.  I made 3.

Dog Leash Hanger

I decided I needed a place to put the leashes.  We got one more pup about a month after I made this…Now I have to make another one to put our new girl’s name on it! In case you are counting…yes that makes three.  We are a little crazy! (Edit: And then we added a forth after this was written!)

I stained the board, I was lucky and found a scrap piece that was just perfect!  Then I have my husband help me attach the hooks and the bracket for the jar.  dsc_0843-001

I cut my vinyl on my silhouette cameo and then painted.  dsc_0845-001

So I made a HUGE mistake that actually turned out really cool.  My vinyl bled a little…I will be using the modge podge method next time.  So I tried to clean it up and ended up making a bigger mess.  I figured I would try to stain again over the paint and see what happened.  It actually came out cool and made the lettering look a little aged!  So I would do this again next time, I really love the look.  dsc_0849-001dsc_0851-001

Love really is a four-legged word in this house!
