Hi everyone and welcome to this week’s post! I really appreciate you coming back because this is going to be my first DIY post! As some of you might know, I’m in a sorority at James Madison University called Sigma Alpha Omega. SAO is JMU’s only Christian sorority and its tons of fun! Part of that fun is recruitment, which we have every Fall. Included in recruitment is the dispersing of little sisters, or “littles” as we like to call them. 🙂 Throughout this post I’m going to be sharing some (I can’t share all of my secrets) of the crafts I did for our Big/Little reveal that we had this past Sunday!
The first DIY that I did was something I’ve been wanting to make for a while. My original idea was to get a big letter initial and cover it in flower tops, but when I walked into Michaels to get my supplies, I noticed they had leaf cut-outs and thought that would be even more perfect! So I went ahead and bought the letter initial, the leaf cut-outs, and super glue. It barely took any time to make and it turned out so well! It can stand alone or be hung on the wall and I just love it. I wish I made one for myself!
The next idea I had was to make a couple cute canvases that she can hang on her wall in her dorm/apartment! I went on Pinterest and found some cute Big/Little quotes to use and I was set! The one I’m going to share today says, “Here’s to you, here’s to me, Big and Little we’ll always be!” I thought that was just perfect to put on a canvas and I love how it turned out! I used gold and black Sharpies for the lettering and just left the canvas white so it wasn’t that expensive either!
The last little gift I incorporated was a little white tin bucket and succulent that I got from Target. I obviously didn’t hand-make either of these but I thought it would be nice to include a little something extra in her gift to accompany all the artsy pieces. If you’re in the market for extra ideas, try finding out what her favorite kind of candy is or her favorite nail polish color to be able to throw in!
Making all of these items was a blast! Even if you aren’t in a sorority, I hope you can still take away some ideas for fall decor, decorating in general, or maybe even a birthday gift! Thanks so much for reading and I’ll be back next week with another brand new post. See ya then!
