Soccer Wall Hanging

First of all, I don't like change and as I'm writing this post, I'm totally confused with the new blogger look! Hope I can pull this off!

I made Jace a baseball wall hanging last year and promised Jordyn a soccer one.

I'm only a year late in doing so!

I found these paper plate holders at Goodwill, 4 of them for 50 cents!

I used one of them and spray painted it white.

I went to Tagxedo and found a soccer ball there and plugged in Jordyn's name. If you haven't played around over there, yet, it sure is fun! I was hoping they would have a volleyball also so I could make one for Jalynn, but soccer was all they had.

I cut and glued it to a round piece of cardboard to fit the middle of the plate.

Hot glued it in the center and added black cording to finish the inside edge. I kind of thought I was finished, but Jordyn suggested I add flowers around the edge.

Yo-yo flowers it is!

I've got to admit, she was right!

I'll be linking Here this week.

Great wall hanging Terri! I've yet to explore Tagxedo - another thing on the list.. And I just logged on after a weekend away and haven't yet figured out blogger - oh it's going to be a long day!

What a fun wall hanging! I love her name in the soccer ball. And she was right, those yoyo flowers are perfect.

That looks so fun! My son has gotten really into soccer this past month or so; I should totally go plug in his name and make him a custom soccer ball! Thanks for the great idea! And for linking at Shine on Fridays.

Fun! I'm going to have to check out that site. I'm with you on not liking change and know Blogger's going to pull the plug on the old interface soon. Ugh!

I had never heard of Tagxedo. It is SO cool. I had to play around with it for a while. Your wall hanging turned out so great. Thanks so much for partying with us this week.:)
