Home Wall Decor - What I Love Most About My Home



Moving into a new home can be stressful. All the boxes, utilities, not knowing what you're having for dinner, can get overwhelming. But it's also a fresh clean slate. You can start all over on your decorating if you choose! 

When I moved into our new home I decided I needed a clean slate. Before I had bachelor pad theme. Black, white, chrome, and some oriental stuff thrown in. I wanted something more homey. 

This is one of the first projects I made for my home when we moved in. I wanted something to go with the new color scheme of earth tones and sunflowers and it is still one of my favorite pieces of art. 

Materials


11x14 Cardboard Backing
Electronic Die Cut Machine
Scrapbook Cardstock and Paper
Scrapbook Adhesive
Wink of Stella Pen
Black Embroidery Thread

Directions


I cut all the letters, the heart, and the house out using my electronic die cut machine. I decided on the size I wanted and laid out my design in the program so my cuts came out exactly the way I wanted them. 

I used a clear Wink of Stella on the Love and Share words to give them a little something extra. I wanted them to stand out. I finished it off by hand stitching with black thread around the heart and on the borders. 

The final product took me about an hour to complete and is 11x14. I eventually framed it instead of keeping it on the easel so I could hang it on the wall. A sign is a simple and bold way to start your decorating off right. I used this sign as inspiration for the rest of the main areas.
