{Pinterest to Project // vol. 1 // Fall door hanger}

I don't know about you, but I have way too many pins saved on Pinterest and never follow through with making any of them. I've had a board labeled "Do This" for years and do you want to know how many of those pins I've actually turned into a reality? ZERO. I've decided that I want to change that and start turning my pins into projects. And of course, I'm going to share it here on the blog! So, here is my first installment of Pinterest to Project. Hall Around Texas Pin to Project

I decided to start with a fall door sign because I am fall obsessed! It's my favorite time of the year. Plus, my DIY burlap wreath was starting to look pretty sad. All of the turquoise had faded into a weird green color. I wanted something a little different than what I have been hanging on my door for the last few years, so I chose this pin:

I went to the store with full intentions on buying a wooden sign just like the above, but then I saw the tin. And I wanted to make it a little different and put my own touch on it! So, I bought tin instead of wood. Here is how I created my project:

Tin {2pk} - $8.84 @ Walmart
Spray paint - $4.32 @ Walmart
Letter H - $1.47 @ Walmart
Fall colored flowers & leaves - $5.41 @ Dollar Tree
Hot glue gun - had at home
Wire cutters - had at home

Not too shabby! I only bought the 2 pack of tin because they were out of the 1 packs. And the spray paint will be used for a couple of more projects so it will serve more than one purpose. The whole project took me a total of maybe 10 minutes. I spray painted the letter H with the turquoise paint and let it dry while I did other chores around the house. Then I just clipped the flowers I wanted to use with the wire cutters and hot glued the flowers and the letter H to the tin. That's it! Cheap, easy and so cute!!

Now I can't wait to finish decorating my porch. I just have to talk the hubbs into getting my stuff from the attic. Because I can't do attics.

Have you made anything from Pinterest lately?
