So I am loving garage sales this year!!! I have found a several good things. Well I found this star for $3 (it's huge, like 2 1/2 feet across) at one the other weekend. So I thought that I would spruce it up a bit with some scrapbook paper.
This is how I made it:
1) First I spray painted it brown. I wanted some of the star to show though, so I wanted it to be brown and not red.
2) Then I glued paper onto the star. I used a package of scrapbook paper that had several different designs but had all matching colors. I then used a brayer to make sure there weren't any bubbles.
3) I continued to glue all the of the paper around the star
This is what it look like with all the paper. I purposely left a gap in between the papers, so there was a contrast between the brown and the paper and so the papers wouldn't all blend together.
4) I then put mod podge all over the paper, making sure to really seal down the edgesAnd now it's hanging up in my master bedroom! I love the colors of it and look of it on my wall! Yay for cheap decorations that make me happy! :)
