DIY Chevron Wall Art

Have you ever found something random that you just have to keep? I found these little guys while a neighbor was cleaning out her basement. So I said, umm, of course I'll take them off your hands and use them....for something..... someday
Well that day has finally come! The chevron pattern is pretty popular now and I've been wanting to add more to our Beach Cottage Bedroom. This is what I cam up with!
I painted some of the pieces with blues and greens. I was going for a patina look but didn't quite get it. I was still pretty happy with the outcome though.
 I spray painted other pieces with Rustoleum's Oil Rubbed Bronze Metallic Spray.
I used a walnut stain on a 2'x2' board I had laying around. Once it dried I laid out my pattern. Blue, Black, Steel, Spacer, repeat. I glued them down with E6000 Epoxy except for the Spacer piece. 
While my glue was drying I made a frame to fit the board and using the same Oil Rubbed Bronze Spraypaint I coated the frame.
 Once the glue was fairly set I pulled out my Spacer pieces to let the wood grains show through.
 Attached the frame to the board and it was ready to go!
 Love this pattern!

DIY Fall Pompom and Fabric Rose Wreath

Don't forget to stop by and Like my Facebook Page and Follow me on Twitter!
Fall is here! But it's not quite time to bring out the spooky Halloween wreaths just yet. So I made a new one! I love my fabric roses from the Curtain Tie project and have been wanting to make more AND make some out of burlap!

Materials:
Misc fabric and burlap
Jute Twine
Hot Glue Gun
Grapevine Wreath 18"

I gathered up miscellaneous fabric {some was clearance pieces, some leftover from other projects} and my twine.
I started ripping the fabric into strips, changing up the width and length in order to create various size roses.
I followed directions from the Curtain Tie post and made a good handful of different size roses and pompoms.{Pompoms are easy to create, just google it if you're not sure how}

Next, I started hot gluing them to the grapevine wreath.
I wrapped the twine around the top of the wreath and then used another piece of torn fabric to create a tie for the wreath to hang. I started by knotting the fabric around the wreath. Then I tied a knot around a finger. Slide the finger out and I had a loop to hang with. And finished it off with a bow tie.
It's ready to go!


 Here's a pic of the loop over the door hanger. You can't even see it!
