Reader Submission for the Pinstrosiversary Challenge:
Hi, my name is Tammy.  I just recently found your blog, and love it!  So when I read about your "Pinstrosiversary Challenge" I knew I had to find something to enter.   I recently found a pin that I really thought was so pretty, and looked easy and have been dying to make.
Original Pin

So off to my local Wal-Mart I went in search for my supplies, the grapevine wreath, and burlap were no problem.  I ended up not being able to find the ecru sunflowers for a price I could live with, so I substituted white Zinnias instead (4 for $2, vs. $3 apiece!).    I did run into a bit of trouble finding a letter in a font I liked, Wal-Mart only had one type,  and Michael had none in wood, so it required a trip to Hobby Lobby to find one.
All in all I consider it a Pin Win, even though I think I probably should have place the T a bit higher, but I had to place it where the hot glue would hold best. 

 Here it is hanging on the front of my house:

All in all I am very pleased with the end result.
