Nevermore Raven Door Hanger with Outdoor Mod Podge

Three years ago I bought this metal hanging vase, but when I bought it, It was green with an ugly label on it.

green-tin

I ripped off the label and let that ugly mess sit in a closet waiting for a good makeover idea to strike.

I am thrilled that using some Mod Podge Outdoor and Stiffy Fabric Stiffener helped me give this metal door hanger an awesome new existence!

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.

While I had the Stiffy Fabric Stiffener out, I stiffened the edges of these burlap flowers.  I stiffened the small burlap flowers in the top of the arrangement too.

I sprayed the chalkboard sign and the raffia with a brown, glittery misting paint to give it an aged look and to tone down the brighter colors.

Now get some Mod Podge and get crafty!
