Let’s make it!
My son Finn is crafting with me today so anything can happen, right?
We started with placing beads on the frame. I put them on and spaced them out before hot gluing them. This way, I know they are evenly spaced.
Once glued, I painted them with Waverly Antique Wax, and then a coat of White Swan from Debi’s Design Diary DIY paint.
Meanwhile, Finn is having a great time mixing colors of paint!
Next, I sanded it down just a little with my sanding sponge while Finn shared Jeremiah’s ghost painting Halloween project.
Our friends are sending fabric pieces to go on our lampshade tree, and y’all, the response has been amazing!
Finn wanted to open one of our packages during my live. He is so excited and wants to help open every single one! He is delighted that this one is a train from Dot Miller.
Finn then called Ms. J (Janet Bryant from Team Hickabilly) to come see something. He loves Ms. J.
Next I cut a piece of fabric and hot glued the top edge to the back, then glued the rest on.
TIP: You can use scrapbook paper instead of fabric if you’d like.
And here it is. Yes, that is Finn behind me. He’s off the chain today!
I secured the insert into the frame while getting my “hair” done.
Finn decided to go play with daddy, so I’m going to stamp my fabric.
I’m using two layers of white fabric, cut with pinking shears and hot glued together.
The stamps are IOD Letterpress stamps from Milton’s Daughter.
I lined them up on the grid sheet, inked them with black ink, then positioned the grid sheet like I wanted, and it’s done!
Unless you want some pink rick rack, which I did, just hot glue it on, y’all.
TIP: Be sure your glue doesn’t interfere with your stamping. Just cut your fabric wide and long enough so the dried glue won’t be in the way.
I’m gluing on my little flying pig now. I started out with two wood cubes, but they made it stand out too much. I took those off and used a thinner wood circle.
Notice that the beads are whiter? I went back over them with my White Swan because they needed more white.
I used some of a bead garland to create my hanger. I just put knots in the ends of my twine, glued the ends onto the back of my project and placed a piece of a crafting stick over the twine.
TIP: Always use an even number of beads so it will hang evenly.
And here it is! I think I’ll gift this to my mom, Mama Susie!
