Lavender...R

My friend Jami at http://www.freckledlaundry.com/ gets credit for this project.


While cleaning out my laundry room, I found a big bag of lavender and I began to throw it away. I somehow, dug it out of the trash and thought 'I could make SOMETHING' (that is my clutter problem ...I think I will need it ONE DAY). The following day (so glad it wasn't years) Jami had a post of how she covered a chipboard letter with the lavender.
Hip-Hip-Hooray... a project to use up my lavender!

My local craft store was offering $1 off any letter.


I looked at the chipboard, but didn't like the shape of the "R"


I used a staple gun to attach the ribbon,

then used a hammer make sure it was tight!


LOTS of glue



It helps to pat down the lavender.


I think I'll go hang it on the front door!
