May I Address the Street

Time – something I don’t seem to have enough of (like every mom out there!) SO when it comes to fall decorating, I wanted a cute, but quick fall fix for my front steps. A quick trip to my hardware store for lightweight aluminum street numbers and picked up some pumpkins while at the grocery store (ahhh – I just pretended my kid-laden car was almost the same as a hayride out to the pumpkin patch) The lightweight metal is easy to bend, just use your hands to curve the numbers slightly to fit your pumpkins Use nails or tacks to pop numbers straight into the pumpkin (I used carpet tacks because I like the rustic look) Your five minute or less pumpkin decorating project is now complete – the hard part is deciding should I put them on the left side or the right side of the stairs – no matter their location, cute, cute, cute! Happy Fall...

Easy steps walk you through creating a verse board using your own surfaces: A homemade chalkboard, an existing chalk or dry-erase board, a chalk-painted wall, let your imagination go wild with how you can put scripture front and center in your own home! To show one easy and creative way to use the packet, I pulled an old frame from the studio, pulled out the picture and inserted some simple butcher paper. Then following the instructions, applied the vinyl to the glass One, two three, a verse board now sits where an odd sailing ship with dog sailers once roamed  (garage sale find I must confess, bon voyage dog sailers, hello Word of God!) Just one way to use the new make one, give one packet! Comes with instructions, short Biblestudy introduction, verses to learn, 2 vinyls & a gift card for your ‘give one board’.
