Alright, now that I got that cleared, I am pretty sure she is still reading:) BUT, whatever, this will spoil her Christmas surprise. hhhhhhmmmmm...... maybe I should wait to publish this post. NOPE! I am way too excited to show you what I came up with! This thing was a beast. I didn't really have a clear vision for what I was going for, so I had a ton of mistakes and had to re-paint 3 times because I tried putting the vinyl on when the paint was still a little wet. Then I sprayed some glitter and it came out way to fast and too thick. Then my daughter stepped on it when I was letting the paint dry and I had to clean her and all her little feet print up. NOT GOOD!
I seriously about just trashed the hole project, but I left it alone for about 4 days. I thought and thought of how to salvage what I did have. I wanted to use what I had so I could stop wasting vinyl. See each time I had to re-paint, I had to cut out more vinyl. Ugh!
Long story short, I finally got it right. I added some brown paint to distress it. It was the final touch to this project.
I used 2 colors of ribbon and overlapped them
Just some sparkly holly stickers from Hobby Lobby
Think she will like it!?! I do. Does it inspire you to make one? Well you still have 2 1/2 months left to make one!
