I’ve had this metal sign for about 4 years. It’s about time I got it out of the closet and used it for something! I originally bought it so I could decorate it with vinyl but in all the years I’ve owned it I’ve never found the right design for it. I was THRILLED when Tim Holtz came out with a fabric line because it helped me finally decide what to do!
I’m using Tim Holtz’s Eclectic Elements 5″ Charm Pack fabric to give my plain sign a great new look! I used my rotary cutter to cut the pieces to fit within the sign’s border.
I applied Mod Podge to the sign and laid the fabric on top.
After I had all the pieces Mod Podged to the sign, I applied Mod Podge to the top of each piece too.
After the Mod Podge dried, I covered the edges of the sign with painter’s tape. Then, I took the sign outside and sprayed it with Krylon UV-Resistant Clear Acrylic Coating. I did that because I wanted an added layer of protection for the fabric, since I plan to use heavy duty magnets on it. Now, it’s all dry and ready to hang in my craft room!
I can’t wait to show you how I’m using it in my craft room! I’ll show you how I re-did my craft room soon you’ll see it then for sure!
Here’s another of my favorite projects using Tim Holtz’s awesome fabric (also in my craft room).
