I have been trying to find some lovely decorations or at least inspiration for crafts that we can display in our basement. I thought it would be a neat idea to include our last intail "J" in our decor. I wanted to personalize it to our color scheme that we'll have in the basement. So, I ran over to Hobby Lobby, and bought a cardboard "J", and some scrapbook paper to cover it with. This is what I came up with!
|Teal, Gray, and Purple:)|
This project was pretty easy to whip together and didn't take too much time! I think it took me more time with trying to figure out what to add to the "J" than anything else!
|My materials for covering the "J"|
First, I traced the "J" and cut that out. I was worried about the teal scrapbook paper because of the thread that was in it. I thought it might just unravel once I cut it, but it didn't:) Then I measured the width of the "J" and cut out strips of that from my purple scrapbook paper. Next, I found my, good and trusty, Mod Podge the glossy kind. I heart Mod Podge! I applied it to the "J" and let it dry for a good 2 hours. Definitely let it set for a while to dry!

It's been a while since I made a craft! I was having withdraws, I think;) Have any of you been working on some neat crafts?
Thanks for stopping by:)
Until next time!!!!Craft-O-Maniac,
