Hair Accessory Board

I never realized that my passion for “girly” things would grow even more once I had my little girl. Well it did, I and she has truly enjoyed all the bows, flowers, and clips I have made! The only problem I was having was that there was nowhere to put them. As I searched and searched for and idea, I finally came across one I like and the best part about it is that it very DIY friendly. All you need is some fabric, some wide ribbon, and a cork board that you might not need anymore. All I did is cover the board with the fabric using a glue gun. afterwards I added the ribbon in the desired places I needed. The more ribbon you add, the more space you will have to hang your little ones hair accessories. there you go that’s it!!! I also like this becasue I can hang on the wall and it also works as piece of art in her room 🙂


Yard Sales and Map Art!

So, all three of us Crafterella Sisters were at a Saturday yard sale looking for treasure when I spotted a big paper map. I asked, “How much is this?” The yard sale man timidly said, “um…a dollar?” Like maybe he had seen too many people ask that question, hear his price, and with a disgusted face put it back down. Like a dollar is too much to pay! I love it when people do that with quarter items! Come on, it’s hard work to have a yard sale, pay the quarter! I mean, I’m all for getting deals and the lowest price on things, but  what do they expect?

One time a lady was selling a new Angel’s jersey for 5 bucks and a “customer” was trying to get it for a dollar, so I helped out and said, “You only want 5 dollars for that!?” sounding interested. All of a sudden that jersey was worth every cent. Haha!

Anyways, on with this map art. The yard sale man threw in some old AAA maps of Los Angeles too, knowing I liked maps. Yay! What good customer service, so I tipped him 🙂

To make art like this, you need a canvas, Mod Podge, a map (big enough to fit around the canvas), acrylic paint, and a cuppa Joe or tea.

First, Cut the map about 2 inches around the canvas.

Then crumple it up being careful not to rip it.

Get your Coffee or tea, I made espresso, and stain the map with it.

Put Mod Podge on the back of the map to glue it onto the canvas.

Put Mod Podge on the sides of the canvas and map and fold it like a present.

Paint black around the edges to shade it, and paint an image in the middle.

Put Mod Podge once again, let it dry and then you’re done!

Here is another example of Map Art. Thanks for looking!~N
