In addition to the dollar stores, I love to hunt the dollar bins at Michael’s craft stores.  The bins near the register are usually priced $1.50 per item, and there’s another section of the store with items that are arranged by collection and the prices range from $1-5.  These are great places to find little embellishments for projects and fun party favor items.  On my recent shopping trip I found this fun, fluffy wired ribbon.  The item reminded me of clouds, so I decided to use them to spell words to make fun cloud wall art.

Project Estimate:
  • Wood plaque – $1
  • Wired ribbon/string – $3
  • Paint – on hand
  • Glue gun – on hand
Total:  $4
Step one:  Paint the wood blue.  You can find these inexpensive plaques in the unfinished wood section of craft stores, or stock up on holiday signs at Dollar Tree to use for projects like this one.

Step two:  Twist the fluffy wired string to spell the desired word.  I used “dream” but you could spell a name or anything else you like.  Make sure the word fits on the plaque.
step 2
Step three:  Hot glue the word onto the sign.  Embellish if you like.  I punched some small butterflies from paper to add some color.  I glued a piece of the wired ribbon to the back to make a hanger.

These signs would make adorable nursery decor.  I’m hanging this in my craft room to remind me to let my imagination roam and be creative.  It’s fun to have your head in the clouds, don’t you think?
