WFMW - Decorating with Scripture

Write them on the doorframes of your houses...Deuteronomy 6:9

In many of the catalogs I've been looking through lately, I've noticed adhesive saying that can be applied to the walls. Well, look at that - I'm a trend setter! My long-time goal has been to get Scripture on the walls of every room in my home. Not there yet, but working on it. Here are some ways to get the job done without the $30-50 dollar price tag.

Below is the nook off the kitchen where many of our school supplies are stored. Ted was the one that pointed out this verse to go on the wall. I found a font I liked on the computer and printed it out. I drew a few guidelines and penciled it in. Finally, I went over it with paint pen. The great thing about this font is that it is very forgiving!

Below is the powder room which we call the "Palm Tree" bathroom. I did this one in the same way using a gold paint pen.

This is in our basement. I free-handed it with paint pens after getting frustrated when the children squabbled over cleaning up their toys.

The first verse I put up in this home was over our front door. I printed it off the computer in reverse on the back of some scrapbook paper. I cut it out with sharp scissors (rather time-consuming but cheap!). I stuck them up with glue stick and washed over the letters with watered-down white glue.

Now that I have a Cricut for scrapbooking, this is the only way to go! I cut out the letters, ran them through my Xyron, and stuck them on the wall. These have been up in the boys' bathroom for over two years.
