So I was a busy bee last night... I did an experiment. Would flat black paint work as chalkboard paint? Ummmm the answer is NO! At least not on glass... Maybe I'll do another experiment to see if it would work on another surface but it won't work on glass. I did about 4 coats and when I went to prime it with my chalk it started to peel off. It wasn't pretty...
In other news... I think that me and the girls over at Shanty 2 Chic had the same idea. Well kinda. Have you seen their ruffle tree and the rosette tree? If not go check them out they are tooooo cute! I bought all of these wooden circles to make peppermint ornaments and well... I can't draw pretty peppermints. So I was thinking to myself what am I going to do with a bunch of wood circles?
It's kinda hard to see because of me trying to hold tight but go with it! :-)
Then I put a dab of glue (hot glue) in the center of the wood circle and pressed down. Then I started twirling and gluing... I would twirl the fabric and then twist it around my bud in the center and glue ever so often. About the time my glue gun was ready to drop a glob I was there to use it!
Once I was done I had a bunch of rosettes. Now here is where I messed up... When you're at the end of your fabric and ready to glue it to the back of the wood go ahead and have your hanger ready to glue down at the same time. It will save you the extra step that I had to take of going back and adding my twine hanger.
Now you have beautiful rosette ornaments to adorn your Christmas Tree!!
