Welcome: A Welcome Tutorial For a First Post

Welcome to my little corner of the internet! What better a first post in the name of welcome, than a fun little tutorial on how to add a little welcome detail to your home!? Lets get started...

Inspiration image from Lou Mora and Sarah Yates' Sneak Peak on design sponge.

Here are the materials you will need...
Pencil, Xacto knife, Eraser, Paint, Sponge Brush, Ruler, Card Stock. Also used (but not pictured), was masking tape, a small paint brush, and a little paint in the wall color.

First, sketch up what you want it to look like on the card stock.

Next, cut the sketch out with your Xacto knife. 
In order to make the "leaves" part symmetrical, fold the page while cutting that part.
Then, open it up to cut out the letters.

Once your page is cut, tape it to the wall...
And sponge on paint, being careful to dab a small amount at a time, 
straight towards the page and back out.
Here is mine at this stage.
Now be patient and allow to dry thoroughly before peeling the paper back.
Here is mine at this stage. 
Kind of wobbly, right? No prob!
Simply go back with your wall color and touch up the edges and voila!
There you have it, your free wall art! Whats not to love about that!?

What do you think? Let me know if you try it!
