Shabby Welcome Sign

Good Thursday afternoon.....It's already the middle of February and the month is just flying by.  Hopefully Spring is just around the corner.  Here is my little fun project.  My husband found this old window screen at an estate sale.  The screen is kinda of unique.  There were no holes in the screening. I really liked the piece. Here is the before picture:


I had seen an idea in a magazine where they had embroidered on an old window screen, so when I saw this old screen I decided to try the same thing.  I pulled out some ribbon yarn and started embroidering.
I put on the screen "Welcome to our Home".  I than glued some old earrings to the screen and the wood frame.  I left the wood frame alone because I liked the holes in the wood and the molding around the screen and I liked the wood look with the dark screening.

So, what do you think?  Better or worse.... Until next time Dianne.....................
