I painted these wood letters that I already had on hand. Printed the last verse of the poem, "Babies Don't Keep," onto vellum paper and used modge podge to get the phrases onto the letters. I also decorated the letters with some buttons I had in my craft drawer. Then, I cut up an old tee shirt and sewed the rough edges together. I needed something to attach it all to... so I took apart our clothes drying rack. Then, I folded over the top of each strip and sewed so that a loop was formed. I threaded the piece from the drying rack thru each loop and hot glued the other end of the fabric strips to each letter (F A M I L Y). Finally, I tied black ribbon around the white pole and into bows that sit lovely on the two nails my husband hammered into the wall for me.
