My friend Jami at 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!


  1. Last week you said you were over "crafts" and didn't want to do any.
    Love the 'R'

  2. I love this, Bonnie! Yours looks more purple-y than mine. Thanks for the shout out, too. Happy you liked the tutorial. How have you been?


  3. I love this! Great tutorial! I would LOVE for you to link up any of your projects to my Ten Buck Tuesday link parties!
