Lucky "L" on my front door...

I just took my rose heart off of my front door and made this today...
My Lucky L Door Decor.
It also helps that our Last Name starts with an "L", so I can use this a lot during the year!
I used a scrap piece of foam core and cut it to a 8"x10" size.
To cover the rough edges, I just hot glued ribbon around it.
I just "plucked" the little stems off of a dogwood looking bush that I got half off at Hobby Lobby.  So, this project only cost me $4 because I had everything else on hand.
Be careful...I burned off some of my fingerprints today! ;)
You have to hold the stems down for a moment or it will not dry flat.
I had an extra picture frame hook from a previous project and just hot glued it to the back.
The "bush" had bright and dark colored stems, so I made sure that I alternated them.
I am pretty sure that either Pottery Barn or Ballard Designs had something like this.
My 12 year old son helped me figure out how to get the "L" to be straight.  I told him that I was proud that he could figure out a craft and he said, "Well, I have to learn to figure things out because I am going to be an architect when I grow up"...I can't wait for him to design my dream house...
Up close look at the tag.  I seriously made this in under a minute because the flower was premade & I just wrote "lucky" on the tag...easy, easy!  With my craft stuff semi-organized I found everything fast...Yeah!
Be LUCKY!
