Day 9: Adding a Little Fun {to the Kitchen}

Day 9 of my series: 31 Days to Transform the Heart of Your Home. (Go here to catch up and see what's in store for the rest of the series.) 

Today I wanted to show a little way to add color and fun to any room---but in this case---the kitchen!

I mentioned on Day 6 when discussing what to put above kitchen cabinets, that words (whether wood or chipboard like mine) can be a great way to not only add a little color but some personality as well.

So I decided to reuse some letters I had with a little yarn and hot glue.

I used a yellow and white yarn that was already combined and wrapped the outsides of the letters.

Then tried to fill in some of the inside.

I then wrapped long-wise across the top, middle, and bottom

and then in the opposite direction.

I then decided to add a little red with half a piece of felt I had on hand.

I then folded the half in half

and cut slits leaving about a half an inch on the glued edge.

With a little hot glue, I began to roll.

until I couldn't anymore--securing with glue the entire time.

I decided to glue on a little square to the back to make it easier to adhere to my letter.

A little fabric and my felt flower and I think I'm finished.

A fun little pop of color and texture!
