DIY Over The Headboard Decor

My husband and I closed on our very first home about 6months ago and 4 weeks right after we had Shiloh.  Crazy, I know.  However we are completely in love with our home.  From the time we started to look for a house up until now, I’ve tuned in almost everyday to HGTV.

HGTV makes me feel like I can do anything, but a lot of times I end up doing nothing or I don’t finish a project.  I decided to challenge myself to finish projects that I started.  I actually started this project while we lived in our apartment.  It was originally going to be a herb  pot.  I wanted to grow basil, cilantro and thyme.  As I started to finish this project, I realized that it would go awesome over our headboard if we added bright flowers to the mix and I was right.

This project is pretty simple.  All you need are wood boards and if you go to Home Depot they can cut them down to the size that you need.  I used pipe fitters to fit around the neck of the mason jar and nailed the pipe fitter to the wood with roofing nails.  Roofing nails will not strip your board like screws will.  Lastly, I found this love sign at TJMAX and bought plastic flowers from Hobby Lobby.  I am really pleased with the way it turned out.  So, what  about you?  What DIY projects are you working on?
