Episode 17- Decorative Letters

My Sister in Law is a big Dallas Cowboys fan and wanted to decorate her new baby boy's room in this theme. She had seen a cute idea of decorating the letters in a name with the Dallas Cowboys colors and then hanging the letters with ribbon from stars. She was so sad when she saw how much it would be to buy the letters and stars. I told her that she could make them. She told me "yeah maybe if you are a crafty one, like you." So I told her what supplies to buy and to bring them up to our Labor Day family retreat at my grandparents cabin and I would help her. We had fun doing the letters and I have created a monster in her. Just last Sunday she texted me a picture of letters she had done for her daughter, telling me she had so much fun she did some for her daughter and that now she wanted to do letters for all the "littles" ( when we  talk about all of the kids we refer to them as littles, I think that my sister started it and it has just stuck!)
I thought that I would share how we did them. She hasn't hung them yet but when she does she promised she would send a picture. As I said before we were up at a cabin and as we were starting this project my mom said I should take pictures to put on my website. So I did! Thanks mom for reminding me!! There were a lot of pictures so I decided to put them into a video and talk you through how we did them.  I hope you enjoy!

So cute! I love that idea. It would look really cute with Halloween words and colors. I may have to try that.
