Three years ago I bought this metal hanging vase, but when I bought it, It was green with an ugly label on it.
I ripped off the label and let that ugly mess sit in a closet waiting for a good makeover idea to strike.
First, I covered my ugly green metal hanging vase with primer and black paint and let it dry. Next, I used black paint to darken the Halloween Newsprint Podgeable Paper to give it a more aged look, like I did here.
I covered the back of the paper with Mod Podge Outdoor. It’s a waterbase sealer, glue and finish that lets you decoupage for the outdoors.
I found a picture of a raven online and printed it out. I cut the raven out of it and used chalk to create the shape on some black fabric I had hanging around. Then, I cut the fabric raven out.
Where have I been? This is my first time using Stiffy Fabric Stiffener and I’m hooked. I’ll never be without a bottle. It helps you stiffen fabric and make permanent fabric projects quickly and easily. I dig it. I just put a bunch of it on the raven, let the bird sit a while and when I came back she was done! No more folded fabric when you want it to stand up on your project. I also used it on the black ribbon at the top of my door hanger. Go check out that photo at the top and notice how it stands up. Awesome.
Here I am trying to decide what I want to do next. I knew I wanted to use a clothespin but not in that color, so I took one apart and painted it black. I also took some black ribbon, added Stiffy to it and Mod Podged it to the top. I also Mod Podged some to the bottom.
Now get some Mod Podge and get crafty!
