Next, I Mod Podge'd the printed sheets, both back and front. Once it dried, I went over the lettering with a bright orange paint pen to give them brighter contrast to the muted burlap. Finally, I glued the letters to the burlap flags.
I'm going to tell on myself...I worked on this yesterday and felt really good about it. Last night, I asked the hubby how he thought I should attach my new project to the mantel and, as I did, I unfurled it to show him, and lo-and-behold, I had glued the letters on backwards. Yep! It said, L-U-F-K-N-A-H-T! The hubby was a sweetie, as always, and simply said, "bless your heart." That is when I both laughed and cried. How on earth did I manage to do that? Still wondering...
Nevertheless, I am glad I was able to fix it and no harm, no foul; in the big scheme of things. I have much to be T-H-A-N-K-F-U-L for!
