Maker Moments: Be Brave

Be brave. Those two words are our words for 2016. How about you? Do you have one too? How did you decide on yours? Reality is, that life’s circumstances, trials or celebrations probably all influence how we view our year and what we choose as our mantra. Michelle and I decided to create this project because we wanted it to serve as a reminder of our goal this year. So, let’s step out of the “fear” box and make this happen!

To create this home décor project, you will need the following:
