I love pictures of little feet so I knew I needed to incorporate one into my foyer decor. In my quest to make my home feel more homey, my foyer needed some attention. Outside of the little black bench we painted for hats and mittens, nothing was there and it was time for that to change.
Recently, I was given this clock for my birthday.
I'm kind of obsessed with the commanding large clocks and this one is perfect.
Since you can see my dad's wreath - or so I call it - right next to it,
(All walls are the same cappuccino color. Lighting on the angles are deceiving.)
I added a Joshua 24:15 vinyl lettering surround. I knew I wanted the verse somewhere on my walls and this worked perfect.
I especially love that it surrounds my dad's wreath because a lady dried and made that wreath for me with flowers from my dad's funeral. Together with my mom, he raised me in the church and as I think of the many gifts he gave me encouraging my faith was one of the best and certainly one I want to impart on my own children.
And, to fancy up the landing, I found this metal N monogram at Hobby Lobby.
I had to wait three weeks for it and pick it up at a store three hours north during a family trip, but it was totally worth it because not only does it look super cool, but it was half off. Yes!
The Please Lose the Shoes idea originated with a site I'd pinned, but my craft skills are limited and it seemed a bit complex. So, I dropped the formal Please Remove Your Shoes, made it into a fun rhyme, and grabbed a picture of the little feet I love.
To Make the sign I:
*got a frame that fit the setting (Hobby Lobby for $10)
*printed off a 4x7 black & white photo of the girls' feet (27 cents)
*bought scrapbook paper for the background (50 cents)
*bought glitter stickets to match other color objects in the foyer (Hobby Lobby $3.99)
*photo corners (that I had at home)
I put the photo corners on the photo, which I placed in the center of my scrapbook photo page. Then I used my glitter stickers to write out my phrase, stuck it in the frame, and voila. Super cute!
