I've been trying to finish decorating my kitchen. It was missing something. I just didn't know what. I knew I needed an art piece of some kind. After traipsing from store to store I began to lose hope. Then I ended up at Hobby Lobby...not an unusual occurrence. I strolled through the aisles. Thinking and waiting for something to call out to me. Then I found a bird stencil and It all started to fall in to place. I couldn't find anything that seemed right...so I would make something.
I purchased one sheet of thick foam poster board. They have several different kinds. I chose one with a beige linen background.
At home I cut the board to the right size for my project.
Then I made a mistake.
I stenciled the bird first.
This made it harder to stencil the shape I chose for the background. I should have stenciled the shape first and THEN the bird. Oh well, I made the mistake and moved on.
I hot glued ribbon around the edges to frame the picture.
Now it sits over my oven and I just love it.
$4.00 on the poster board
$3.00 on the stencil
I already had the paint and ribbon.
So that's $7.00 people! SEVEN!
Saving money makes me S-M-I-L-E
