Kitchy Kitchen Art
I wanted to post a little something about the newest addition to my kitchen. I found this idea on Pinterest
My kitchen has an aqua and red color scheme, but you could do this with just about ANY color. This is a cheap craft to begin with, but I think I've come up with some ways to make it even cheaper!
2 8x10 frames
Set of plastic silver
2 sheets of scrapbook paper (the pattern is up to you!)
Hot glue gun and glue
Pop the glass out of you frames
Remove the cardboard backing from the frame
Cut your scrapbook paper to the size of backing (if necessary)
Use your scotch tape (or whatever adhesive you choose) to adhere the paper to the backing
Reinsert the cardboard backing into the frame
Paint your silverware (this may take several coats), be sure to allow drying time between each coat
Once your silverware is thoroughly painted, and dried, use your hot glue gun to adhere the silverware to the covered backing
Hang your Kitchy Kitchen Art!
I know my silverware looks pink, but it's just the lighting ... promise!
I purchased all my supplies at Michaels, but I'm pretty sure you could find everything you need at the Dollar Store, which would reduce the cost significantly!
Frames (on sale): $4.99 each
Scrapbook paper: $1.29 per sheet
Paint sponge: $.39
I had the hot glue gun, glue, and scotch tape; but if you don't, add another $10 to $15 to the overall cost!
What project ideas have you completed on the cheap?
