Today my fellow hostesses and I kicked off the first week of the #create4spring DIY challenge over on Instagram and this week's theme is "Florals". We will be offering a $25 Target gift card to each week's winner but before I explain how you can participate I wanted to share my submission; a simple hanging mason jar wall plaque.
Let me tell you, when I say "simple", I mean that with all capital letters!
I literally just attached all these items together and called it a day.
Even the wooden plaque came pre-painted and distressed.
Some may call it lazy, I call it efficient.
I found the whitewashed plaque at Michaels.
I really liked the shape of it and did I mention it was already pre-painted?
I picked up the turquoise bird hook at Hobby Lobby last week and just drilled it to the top of the plaque. The rope hanging mason jars were also a Michael's find, however, they were from a collection they sold last summer. I actually picked up quite a few of them....because duh....blue. I love how they have the words "Fresh Cuts" etched on the sides of them.
Sigh....the combo of the pink and purple flowers against that aqua jar just makes my heart go pitter patter! I hung this whole thingamajig on an flea market shutter but I've already thought of a dozen other places it could take up real estate in our home. Even a grouping of these hanging jar wall plaques would make for a great display, don't ya think?
So enough of my rambling, let's talk about this $25 Target gift card up for grabs!
Here's how this #create4spring Instagram challenge works. Every week for the next four weeks, there is a different theme. Today kicks off week 1, which as I already mentioned is "florals".
Want to participate in the challenge? Today through Friday night we want to see your floral creations. By the way, we are flexible. You can interpret the theme in many ways....a real flower creation, a picture you painted of spring flowers, blah, blah, blah. All you have to do is post your picture on IG, tag it #create4spring, and then make sure to follow of your hostesses. You can see and follow all of them from my IG feed here. For additional fun, tag a friend or two to share their creations as well. That's it! Every Monday, the winner will be featured on all ten of our Instagram accounts and will win the $25 Target gift card. Which you will then turn around and mail to me. Just kidding. You actually get to keep it for yourself and buy fun goodies and rub it in my face ORRRR you could buy fun goodies and send them all to me. Your choice. Wink, wink.
Want to just be a spectator? Starting today just search the #create4spring tag on IG and get all kinds of inspiration! There's already 100+ submissions.
I hope to see you there!
