This DIY project was inspired by the lovely Nina Holst over at Stylizimo. Being of the impatient kind I love projects that take an afternoon or less.
I really like letter art around the home but am always staggered at the cost. I thought an X would be a simple start and I used some leftover wood that had the right width. I simply cut it on an angle, glued it together and painted it white.
Now the only thing left is to forever justify to my husband why we have the letter X on our dining room mantle :-)
On a hunt for a Mother's Day gift for my own mum I came across these lovely ceramic vases with delicate detailing. I simply had to pick up two for myself.
