Today I’m participating in Stephanie from Crafting In the Rain’s Craft Month from A-Z!
My letter is “K” which happens to be my favorite letter. And since my craft had to be based on that letter, of COURSE I decided to create a spring craft out of KCups. (Yes, this is starting to become a regular feature with me!) And I also had to incorporate some old pallet wood, since that is another thing I love to do.
For the background I cut the wood down on the chop saw:
And then stained it with some stain I had lying around:
Next I assembled into into a board using a few other scrap boards and my nail gun:
Next I took my KCups and spray painted them with yellow spray paint:
Next I cut out some flower petals out of cardstock. I could have done this step with my Silhouette machine but my lazy girl genes kicked in and I just used a scissors.
I bent the flower petals out to give me a more three dimensional look and laid them out on the board to get an arrangement I liked.
Next I cut some stems and leaves out of green vinyl and stuck them to the board (vinyl doesn’t stick well to the rough stained wood so I made sure to press it down really well)
Finally I used hot glue to attach the card stock and the KCups to the board:
I had left a space at the top of the boards so that I could add a message.
I thought “Hello Spring” was appropriate since it is only about a week away.
I can’t wait to incorporate it into my spring mantel
Now go and check out the other A-Z submissions this week (And be sure to check out Stephanie’s blog later this month for her grand finale giveaway at the end of March!) :
