Works of Art

While cleaning out my office closet I found this ugly board....I actually use them for my Laundry and Washroom signs, but wanted to do something different. Here's what I did...

Find some super cute scrapbook paper. Like the ones here. Trace either side of the board onto the paper and cut out.

Next, slather that mod podge on like crazy! And put your pieces of paper down.

Because my board is the weathered board, I had to bring in reinforcements to hold it down :)

While that was drying I did my clothes pins. Trace them onto other paper and cut them out. I Mod Podged the paper on and sanded and inked the edges....

After the board was dry I painted the edges a coordinating color to the paper. I also sanded around it and inked the edges (do you see the pattern here?)

Then I applied the Mod Podge to the entire front.

These letters I already had in my huge mess of a craft closet!

For the hanger part, I braided some ribbon and jute together!

And whala! Now I actually have a place to hang those cute little works of art!
