So me being and Ideas girl came up with a new idea of using board instead of a tree. (err hem how original of me?) I headed down to our local hardware store, I picked up an MDF for 8 dollars and painted the board red without thinking things through "I was like how am i going to fit the wooden pegs in" .. ba bing IDEA.. get FHs drill and go nuts! so I did even tho i had already painted the board. If you decide to do this, I suggest you drill the holes first and not paint first?
My cute little "mini dolly pegs" I picked up from the local craft store for two dollars!
I stencilled out our surname and painted that in in a cute orange that has been used on a few projects. (took about 1hr because I did several coats)
and to attach our wish tags which I had made earlier..
Gives us our end product so far:
Anyway I have had a few dilemmas. So I'm going to fire off the questions here!
One: Should I paint the pegs to match(the pegs are fitted into the wooden board)? or leave it as it is? Or if I do paint it, what color?
Instead of the twine how bout using colored rope? then what color?
Also FH and I wanted to freehand our names on top of the surname in a lighter color (we would get my mum to do the next step as she is an excellent drawer and I am not a Picasso painter..) . But I'm thinking I might just leave as is? or should I still go ahead with the writing?
What would you do? Feedback would be appreciated!
