VIDEO TRANSCRIPT

The weekend’s almost here. I’m Robin with Front Door Friday. It’s graduation season. Are you celebrating? Let’s create unique front door decorations to honor the graduate in your life.

 

Go ahead and brag about the graduate in your life. With front door decorating, the whole world can see.

 

[Erin] So, how are you making this special for Connor?

 

[Robin] Well, Connor is going to do an electrical apprenticeship. So, I want to base it on that. So, first, with the cap, I took electrical wire and formed it in the word “congrats” and I zip tied and hot glued it onto the cap. Then I took a generic diploma and I put “Your future is bright”obviously, since we’re talking about electricity.

 

I did find this fun light that actually works and it’s plastic so it’s safe. And I added some switches, some electrical wire in the shape of a heart. And voila, there we go.

 

[Erin] So, let me guess, a teacher?

 

[Robin] You guessed it. My sister, Marney, has been homeschooling her daughter but then got into some classical conversation and she is going wild with teaching that class. So this, I dedicated it to her, my sister, Marney. But again, I did the same concept. I took crayons and wrote “Congrats” on the hat and then added all the different things that, to me, meant teacher.

 

We have some flashcards, an apple, of course, a ruler, pink eraser, pencil. Again, you just go with the theme, whatever it happens to be, for your graduate. Graduation is an accomplishment. Be proud and decorate to celebrate.

 

That’s it for this week’s Front Door Friday. I encourage you to step out and try some front door decorating this weekend. To learn more, check out the Country Door blog. And I’ll see you next Friday. Happy decorating and God bless.
