To say I have a thing for that there Lightbox and vignettes would be an understatement.
I am happy for a reason to use that Lightbox. Not that there really needs to be a reason. It gets plenty of use. But a day like Father's Day is just a fun visual not just for dear ol' Dad...but for the kids to not forget. (Not that they would forget, or anything.) It's Father's Day. And they better celebrate him.
To put this vignette together I simply grabbed from around the house. If you follow my party and home decor posts at all, then you know this is just what I do. I very rarely go and buy something for my vignettes. I just use stuff over and over again. Is that wrong? Nope. It's using what you have. The Lightbox, which can be purchased at craft stores plus online outlets, has been a great addition. It can be used over and over again. Looks great at night with the light on. And it's on trend. So the Lightbox was the needed focal point to this space and celebration.
I have a vintage photo holder that I grabbed from an antique store several years back. I used one of Heidi's Gold Bull Clip to clip a muslin canvas, a DIY Frame Insert, and mini Gallery Wall Art to add to the spirit of this space. This is a super easy way to add to a vignette.
Lastly I grabbed a couple of his fav books and stacked them with a pair of his glasses. Books are my friend for adding dimension to a vignette. The cup of coffee is just a bonus...just happened to have that laying around too...I have issues with caffeine.
Now let's get back to the Lightbox, here is what is needed to create this one in particular:
So of course a Lightbox is needed. And useful.
Lightbox Tape in Wood was a natural choice for a manly Lightbox.
I used two different fonts for my phrase. It helps to have two so that I had plenty of letters. But it's also fun to mix up the font type. For this Lightbox I used Alphabet Black and Alphabet Background Black.
Then there of course are some Icons...I like the icons...alot...the hashtag is from the Icons Basics. The crossed arrows came from the Icons Black.
My hope with this post is to inspire you to 'vignette' (is that a verb?) your moments, events, days. It's just fun. And my second hope is that you also have fun with what you already have around the house. Use what you have. Re-use the Lightbox. And enjoy saying it in lights.
And have a Happy Father's Day.
