A word wall Joanna Gaines would be proud of.

Do you know who Joanna Gaines is? She is absolutely my favorite designer. I actually don't think she'd like my house, because it's too dark. But her stuff is SO cool.SO creative and simple and homey. She and her husband work in Texas and they have an HGTV show together. He is hilarious and so cute and she is super-model beautiful. But in a normal way. Anyway, as I sit here stalking watching them, I am working on my word wall. I have a secret agent theme, so I wanted to keep it in the theme. Here's what I came up with.
Consonants are white library envelopes. A little boring, but the magnifying glass adds color. I wanted black envelopes, but alas. There are none to be found.

Vowels are black and white chevron. Matches my black chevron border.
The white envelope is a little boring, but I think it will look clean, and stand out on my walls. I cover them in blue plastic tablecloths. They're pretty hideous underneath.
I'll be writing the words on old school index cards, so I need to add a little Chip and Joanna Gaines. Since there are magnifying glasses on them, I was thinking fingerprints. Any ideas?
Off I go to find word wall games and activities.

  1. That's a really cute Idea! I do think the fingerprints would go along perfectly with the magnifying glasses. I love Chip and Joanna Gaines too, it is amazing what they do the the run down houses they renovate.
