So nothing went as planned this week!
I have been stumped decorating my fireplace. I had this grand idea to make this spectacular mirror and it turned into a total disaster. I now have a few projects I can send over to the Craft Fail blog! Yikes! :)
We did manage to come up with this spur of the moment... framed lavender.
This was influenced by an idea we saw in the magazine,
Create and Decorate
and by a painted burlap picture
we saw in the incredible decor store.
We wrapped a thin board with burlap and hot glued the edges. Then we used craft paint to coat the front of the burlap. I was using a ton of craft paint, so after a couple of coats...I headed outside with some cream spray paint. Much easier!
After the paint dried, we clipped a few fake lavender sprigs and tied with twine and a tag. Next we used hot glue to adhere.
This would be fun to try with herbs and hang them in a kitchen.
Hopefully this week will bring much better luck with the projects.
We have some fun ideas I think you all will like!
