Day 4 – May Arts / Jenni Bowlin Week!

Ordinary to Extraordinary

Hello fans, Andrea here.  I'm really excited to join in the fun of our May Arts / Jenni Bowlin blog week.  I have a simple project I think you will en-JOY! Wink!


 Supplies Needed:

Wood block letters, craft paint, paint brushes, mod podge, Jenni Bowlin paper, May Arts Ribbon, scissors, pencil, and hot glue gun.




First, I painted my letters a beautiful hunter green.


Second, I traced my letters on the back of my fabulous Jenni Bowlin paper.


Third, I glued the paper to my letters with mod podge, the gold glitter type which gave it an aged look.


Fourth, I cut and glued May Arts spectacular ribbons 379-15-25 burgundy pleats, AG15 green gold edge,  and G58 around my letters and voila…………


from ordinary to extraordinary!!


I absolutely love the way they turned out.  I hope this triggers some inspiration for your Christmas decor.  See you soon!
