The folks at Michael’s asked me to take a look at their new Make Market line and pick something to personalize. So that was hard. I mean, craft shopping for fun? *YAWN.
The idea was to pick something that I could dress up, but I liked the product line so much I didn’t want to mess with it to much. So what did I do? I make something decorative functional. *YAWN.
*That was a real yawn this time. Except, it came out really cute!
The letters I chose have extra sturdy cardboard bottoms, so screwing the hook in was easy. This is only going to hold a few keys so I’m not worried about falling out, but if you wanted to hang something heavier it would be easy to cut an incision in back and reinforce the hook with a washer and a small nut.
Cute. Functional. And something I actually need. And guess what? They have like forty three different types of letters! It’s part of their Make Market™ products – a collection of surfaces, letters, frames and more come in modern, eclectic or rustic styles. You’ll find everything from wood to metal to fabric patterns (my favorite!) – plenty of stuff to love as is, or add your own special spin.
