Don't you LOVE taking old, ugly things and making them look fabulous??
I DO TO!!
This is my latest project.......an old ugly lamp I found at the D.I.
It clearly needed just a little love.....
All it took was a few coats of silver spray paint on the lamp base, with a light coat over the shade...and a few hours (well, it seemed more like many hours) of rolling flowers out of silver satiny material that I grabbed at Walmart. (It took 2 yards total)
I saw this Haunted Tree on Wood You Like To Craft....and thought it was so cute!
I had to make my own version....
I started my drawing my tree on a piece of 1/2 inch MDF. Mine is about 3 feet tall. I drew one side along the edge of the board, then just traced it for the other pieces...and added a top to the center piece.
After cutting it out with a jigsaw, we glued the side pieces in place with wood glue.
Throw on some black paint and that's it!
There are so many cute ways you could decorate this!
I decided to go with bats....
I cut the bat shape out of 1/4 in. wood.....painted the edges black and modge podged some Halloween scrapbook paper onto both sides. To hang them I just used fishing line tied around each wing.
