|Hello Everyone! My name is Wendy Myers from Project-Create and I have been a blogger since 2006. But I will celebrate the 2nd year of my Creative Blog in July of this year. I started this blog to keep my creative and personal info seperate. I hope you enjoy the Recycle Project I have posted, I enjoy all types of crafts and this one was super simple and quick. Thanks to Michele for letting me guest post.|
|Last week I really wanted a project to work on, so I headed to the local CHKD. In my search I found this not so cute cork board. It definitely needed a makeover.|
|I only payed $3.98|
The board came with these cute rooster push pins, not sure what will become of them.
|I sprayed the chicken in hopes of covering it as much as possible.|
|I spray painted the frame with some cheapy wal-mart paint to try and cover the green. For some reason it turned out with these odd reddish spots.|
|Then I painted it all over with this plaid pearly paint|
And to give it a little more shimmer and shine I added a little glimmer mist.
|I glued the small part back into the top|
|Samantha had gotten a really cute birthday invitation from a friend that had this peace sign on it, so we recycled it and I attached it with some glue to the middle of the top piece|
|I dug around in my donate bag and came up with this very cute summer top that Sam had outgrown.|
|The color of the paper we used in the top really looked great with this fabric color. So I cut out the front panel of the shirt.|
|It had this really cute lace trim detail, so I kept that as a border for the bottom, just to give it some interesting detail.|
|I cut it down to size|
|I had an abundance of sparkly Mod Podge so I used that and covered the whole front of the cork board.|
|I pressed the fabric down taking caution that it did not wrinkle in the corners.|
|And I must have gooped it here, because it came through the material. I was hoping it would dry and not show, but no such luck.|
|I wanted to add some ribbon, but Samantha loved it the way it was.|
|I am very pleased with my $3.98 purchase.
I added some clear push pins and hung it in my daughters room.
