"Another Altered Item"

This is another altered project I did for my craft room. Actually, for the door to my craft room.

I bought the piece of wood already in the oval shape at Wal-Mart, then had my wonderful, handy neighbor, George, drill two holes across the top, for me to run ribbon for hanging. I painted the back, and around the sides, with acrylic paint, called Fresh Foliage. Then, I added the patterned paper onto the front with Mod Podge.

**Note -- the pattern paper is actually a color copy of the curtains for the craft room. I just took the curtains to my local copy/print shop and ask for a color copy. That way, I was able to match the sign to thing in my room.**

After the Mod Podge dried, I adhered my 'welcome' lettering and some coordinating blossoms. Lastly, I threaded dark brown, velvet rope through the drilled holes and tied knots on the front, so that I would have something to hang my sign by. (I know you can hardly see the rope, due to the photo being taken on dark background. . .sorry)

Hey girl! I'm so happy to hear about your new house! I hope you enjoy it! I just found the big pair of scissors from Hobby Lobby for my door to the scrapbook room! I'm so excited! I've been looking for them forever!
