A "S" for my Door

Back in October, I shared with you "Noah themed" subway art that I had created as part of his birthday party decor. After his birthday, I ended up putting the frame subway art on his bedroom door. I really liked how it looked on the door and decided to create things to hang on the other doors in the hallway, one of those rooms being our bedroom and the other being the bathroom. 

For our bedroom door I decided to create a monogram. I started off with a large chipboard S from Hobby Lobby. Our bedroom is done in teal, brown, and cream so I painted the edges of the S teal. 

I am really into anything with writing on it that looks like newsprint right now, so I decided to create my own faux newsprint. The song, When You Say Nothing at All, is "our" song and was sung at our wedding, so I found the lyrics for the song, copy and pasted them into a word file, changed them to a pretty font, and printed them out on to a piece of white card stock.

I then tea stained the paper to give it a vintage, aged, quality to it. Then I traced the S on the back side of the paper, cut it out and adhered it to the S with Mod Podge. I finished it off buying tying a little bow with some sheer teal ribbon and adding some ribbon to the back to hang it with. 

Love it!
