I have been on a DIY kick lately. I have been reading design and crafting blogs like they are going out of style. Since I struggle with crafts (I can't paint, am not artistic, I don't sew, etc.) I was super excited to find some projects I could finally do.Okay, so probably not a big deal to those of you who are really crafty and creative. However, I am neither, so I was thrilled to find some projects that I could do quickly (and I have to admit it, easily) this weekend. My friend Lindsay and I picked up the supplies we needed and finished these little light switch covers on Saturday. I am so not craft-oriented I even had to buy an Xacto knife! I also had my first introduction to Mod Podge-love it! I will definitely be scouring the internet for more crafts to use that on. If you know of any-pass on the info. I was really pleased with the results! I also was thrilled with my re-made clock. I forgot to take a before picture, but as it is a cheap $3 clock from Walmart, I am sure you can imagine the previous plain white background. Not boring anymore!
Ugly, boring, plain light switch covers-need I say more?
Waiting to dry...
Lovely Vanna, I mean Josie, models her new matching cover-she was thrilled!
The bathroom-I snagged some left over paper from Lindsay because it matches the bathroom perfectly!
My favorite one- in my room. The dark graphic really pops!
The clock with it's snazzy new background. It is a little hard to see in a photo but it looks really good in person. This project was harder than I thought but it turned out well. It bugged Joel that I didn't match the papers-he couldn't seem to understand that I didn't want them to be the same! Silly boys...:)
P.S. If you want to make these I have plenty of Mod Podge left!:) No, really I swiped the instructions from here. I kind of came up with the clock idea on my own. :)
