Good morning! I hope that today finds you well. I have been pretty busy lately with making jewelry and picture frames for some upcoming craft shows as well as driving children around to various things. My summer seems to be flying by QUICKLY!
I found this this morning at The Lettered Cottage. Layla, who is a design consultant, and her husband are so talented and inspiring. Check out their blog, you will not be disappointed!
Anyway, this flag caught my eye right away, white and blue are my favorite!! She said that they made it from shutters that they never used and this is what they came up with. This is her summer themed mantel, check out her spring themed mantel too!
My goal is to try to make this when I get a chance. She will let us know how she made it later this week. It looks pretty simple and you can use wood from a lumber store if you don't have any old shutters. Paint the boards the color of your choice, sand and attach the starfish which I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!
