Hey there… I’m all packed up and ready for the holiday weekend! Our weather has turned a bit rainy, but I am dreaming of days spent out on the lake. From now until about the end of the summer we spend our spare time out at Lake Oconee. I was inspired by a piece of DIY art that H2o Bungalow did for her beach home – you can see her beautiful work here. I liked it so much that I decided to create something for our lake place!

Here’s what I used:

  • 12″x12″ burlap frame
  • assorted colors of craft paint
  • 3/4″ wooden balls with hole openings
  • string
  • Letters that spell “Lake:
  • a square piece of wood for boat sign
  • fencing
  • hot glue and gun

I used a chalk pen to create the rustic white line. I love the “Boat Rental” sign too 🙂  I used a hot glue gun to hold everything in place. It was easiest to glue the floats and sign onto the fence before I glued the fence into place.
