I started with two of these old fence pieces that were nicely weathered. They came from one of my many projects never finished. The color is fantastic.(thanks, Steph....and Kami ...the original fence owner:))
I had to use them quick, because my boys had snagged them out of the garage to use as weapons. It was only a matter of time before one was snapped!
I cut the fence pieces up into a small box
( I used small eggs) about 8"x16"
and glued with Liquid Nails and finished with a couple of "real" nails.
I mixed up some craft paint to make a bluish- turquoise and applied to the primed plastic eggs.
The color makes me happy!
Adding a bit of midnight blue to the turqoise was perfect!
