40 Days-40 Days of Lenten Recipes (and Crafts)
Need to share and send a shout out to two of my favorite blogs!
First let me thank Christina for the sweet Lamb chatterboxes. I made a few of them and put them in a basket in our church narthex for the kids to take home as a family activity. They were snatched up pretty quickly and enjoyed! If you haven't seen these, so adorable and a great way to open some sweet discussions with the little people.
It is so pretty and exactly what I wanted for our Lenten Mantle.
You can see it below.
Instead of framing it, although it would look very nice this way, I decided to do something else.
I took the 8x10 and had it blown up to 12x16, it didn't cost much as I had a coupon etc...
Anyway, once I brought it home, used the old modpodge then a little white paint to blend in the edges. The white paper it was on was significantly bluer than my canvas. Go figure?
When I initially put it up it looked lovely but I felt it was still missing something. I played around with the vases and other things on the mantle. Then, I figured out what was missing for me. So, I added the yellow flowers to match the wall color and bring in the daffodils. I tried to match Kristi's pretty flower design. What do you think?
Too much? or Good Match?
Kristi, I just LOVE it!
Here's the full mantle view.
I can't wait for the Forsythia to be in bloom, maybe should get daisies next?
