So we have a very special someone that is a diehard Duke fan. He does so much for all of his family and friends everyday, we thought we would, in turn, do something special for him.
We snuck- (I just like it so much better than sneeked!) **tomAYto/tomaato** into his office this week and set up a tree- all decked out in blue, white and silver. Go Blue Devils!
I created the base by painting an outdoor planter and adding Duke logos to each side- see my quick tutorial on that here.
I made the D-U-K-E letters from basic premade Chipboard and covered them in blue glittered cardstock- both from Hobby Lobby.
I chose four different ribbon styles- all wire edged for easy manipulation.
