In a few short weeks I will be working at my first craft fair. I couldn't be more excited and I am trying to brainstorm ways to really showcase all that Stampin' Up! has to offer.
I know that Decor Elements will be huge at the craft fair since many people who shop the fair are interested in home decor. I absolutely love the Laundry Decor Element and wanted to show it, but I also wanted to keep it for my own laundry room.
Sooo.... I decided to make a wall hanging. But what to use?? We used to have a small cabinet with a glass door in our bathroom but it was starting to fall apart so I took it apart several months ago and the pieces were waiting in the garage ready to be taken to the dump. The sides and top were laminate so I didn't want to use that for this project, but the glass door seemed perfect!
I removed all the hardware and patched the holes before spray painting it a glossy white. Then I cleaned the glass really well with some Windex before adding the Decor Element. This went on so smoothly! I cut off the overlap and placed the glass back in the frame.
Next, I needed to figure out a good way to hang this. I wanted a more country look, so I used some picture hanging wire and hardware on the back side, then I loosely covered it using 1 1/4" Chocolate Chip Striped Grosgrain. I think when I put it in its final place I will do a bow at the top.
My laundry room is still in production and I plan to paint the walls either a robin's egg blue or a light yellow. For now, I used a wall in my dining room as a backdrop for the photo.
The other project that I plan to show are the cool new blocks and Holiday Mix Decor Elements (pg 30 of the new Holiday Mini). Those are too, too cute!
