It all came together!

I did it! I came up with a plan, purchased my items at bargain rates and created my creation!! :)

You are just spilling over with excitement...aren't you?!


Wanna see how I did it?

First off, I spray painted my frames with a matte black finish spray, then I took the frame apart. I covered a small piece of cardboard that I cut to fit the opening with some burlap (Thanks Mom!) Next thing, I put my burlap piece in the frame and used brads to fasten the back of the frame to the frame itself.

Next, I checked everything out, even putting it on the wall to make sure I liked where the design was headed...

and I did!

I then printed out my design and laid it out to determine the best size...perfect...

Then I painstakingly cut it out...all the twists and turns. I messed up at one point because I cut out the wrong parts!! But that was a quick easy fix...(thanks scotch tape!)

I laid out my stencil and used a short stipple brush to apply my black acrylic paint to the burlap.

As you can see I just flipped my image to paint on the other frame!

I let it dry for a quick minute while I used hot glue to attach my silverware to the burlap!
Then I hung my new art in it's new home on the big red wall in the kitchen!

...a close up of the work...

I just LOVE how it turned out!!! I couldn't have been more proud!!

I hope you like it!!! I had a blast putting it together!
