Hi people! It feels like forever ago that I posted about anything crafty. After flea market mania, I felt a little tired and burnt out. I'm currently working on my new dining room set (well used, but new to me anyway, ha ha). My hubby has gotten really involved in the redo (well, he really had no choice) and he has been working a ton lately so the set is currently half done and waiting in my garage for some more TLC.
My craft space is currently a mess and is in serious need of organizing. But, I managed to squeak out a little craft project that I have been wanting to do for a long long time. I purchased these letters from Michael's over a year ago with plans to make them look cool and hang them in my kitchen. Yep, you heard that right. Over a year.
Well, today I finally got crafty and spiffed them up and I'm really happy with how they turned out. I decided to use the fabric that I will be upholstering my new dining chairs in to help tie it all together. My plan is to keep it fun and funky and a bit mismatched and unexpected. Here's what I did:
First I picked out the part of the fabric that I wanted on the letter.
Plan B was to simply trace the letter, and mod podge it on to the letters. I also dabbed some mod podge along the edges of the fabric so it wouldn't fray. Simple? Simple.
I haven't had a chance to hang them up in the kitchen yet, but here they are on my mantle looking all spiffy :)
I think they came out cute, and will look even sweeter when they are hanging in my kitchen near my new fancy dining set (stay tuned.........like, maybe for sort of a long while. Ha ha).
Happy Hump Day!
