Don't you just hate it when your creativeness is flowing, but your body isn't?? I was looking forward to today, my day off, to tackle some unfinished projects. I woke up this morning with an upset stomach and a bad headache. My stomach is feeling somewhat better, but the headache is still there. So today's post will be short and sweet.
I am a huge fan of Leslie's Whatcha Working on Wednesday. Because of her encouraging posts, I have been cleaning out my craft cabinet where I store oh, so many unfinished projects! Today's finished project is this utensil holder:
My supplies: a roll of clearance wallpaper border that I bought at Lowe's for under 5 bucks, a wine cooler crock that I bought for 60 cents. We used these crocks at Hobby Lobby in the floral dept. to store floral stems. They were unsightly, so the company finally made new floral counters with matching containers. When they did, they clearanced out all the crocks. I bought 5 of them and finally finished one.
I made a circle of masking tape inside the crock about an inch down and then painted around the top and bottom of the crock with Barn Red. I cut the images I wanted to use from the wallpaper border. Gotta love Mod Podge, right? I put some of it on the back of the image to use it as a glue. Once I glued them all in place, I went over the whole thing with Mod Podge again to seal it. It was really rough and I being the perfectionist I am was getting frustrated with the tapering of the crock. I finally decided it was o-k-a-y if it wasn't perfect! Lol! So towards the bottom of the crock, the border is overlapping. When it is displayed on my kitchen counter, you can't even tell.
So there you have it. My Wednesday project. Hopefully next Wednesday I'll be feeling better and will be able to pull more unfinished projects out of my craft closet.
Thanks for visiting me and have a delightful day~
