It’s not only the 15th of the month, but its also my first ever Home Depot Gift Challenge! If you haven’t yet had the pleasure… each month, a fantastic group of bloggers, whip down to their local Home Depot, and using the exact same product, create their own DIY projects with their own unique spin!
None of us know what the other is busy creating, until reveal day, so it’s just as much fun for us to pop over to each others blogs, and check out exactly what we’ve all got goin’ on!

This month, the item was chosen by Shannon, over at Churchill DIY Mill, and she chose Pegboard, to be gifted to any family member. Once I had my hands on my piece of Pegboard, I knew my main goal was to pretty it up a bit… okay, a lot. It’s pegboard.
Here’s how it all started out. Of course it began with a plain sheet of pegboard. I knew I wanted to make something to display. But I wasn’t sure what. After staring at those fantastic drilled pegboard holes, finally, I had it! It seemed like I could use it as a grid for something fun and geometric!
I just needed a few more supplies:
-Yarn (in a few colours)
-Needle with a large eye
All I did to prepare my pegboard was, give it a light dusting of spray glue, and drop it flat, down onto my piece of fabric, cut to size. The spray glue keeps the fabric from sagging or shifting. Next, I used hot glue to fold the edges over the pegboard and hold it in place.
Then, the fun part. Use your imagination and develop a pattern with the yarn and needle, stitching over and under your pegboard. Use the drilled holes to your advantage, counting holes right and left, top to bottom, to keep the pattern aligned, and symmetrical.
Until you have something you’re happy with.
My little creation is being gifted to the family cabin, my husband’s wonderful suggestion, where I think it will fit right in with all that rustic charm.
