~ homemade: welcome sign ~

I am extremely sorry that this post is so late getting up!  And I am also sorry for only giving you one option - trust me, I have sooo many more.  Yet for now, this will just have to do.  With that aside, today's homemade project is a welcome sign...
I love to have something welcoming my guests...it's inviting don't you think?  Anyhoo, the materials I used for this project were an 8 foot piece of lattice (under $23 at Home Depot), 1 can of white spray paint, 4 kale plants (under $16 for all 4), floral wire, red and white gingham fabric, cardstock, and spray adhesive.  Here is a portion of the lattice piece before...
And the kale plants...
First I spray painted the lattice and let dry.  While that was drying I copied letters onto cardstock, sprayed with spray adhesive and laid down pieces of material.  I then cut out the letters.  Next, I cut the kale plants off their stems and stuck floral wire through them...
Finally, I adhered the welcome letters, attached the kale plants and tied some rope on the ends to hang...that's it!
The one thing I love about this project is that any color, fabric, plant or flowers can be used...changing the whole look and style.  Also, you can spell out anything you'd like...just hitched, just married, names, the date, photobooth, etc...  Hope you enjoyed this homemade project! 

Be on the lookout next Thursday for the next homemade project.
