Slooooowly but surely I keep working on projects that have been in my head. Things have been so KRAAAAZY around here that there hasn’t been a lot of time for crafting. Last week I spent a few minutes working on some “Silverware Wall Art”. I’ve been collecting everything I knew I would need for some time. Here’s what I needed:
Got out my glue gun and fired it up!
One Goodwill find… $1.98
I removed the glass, then took out the picture to use as a backing for my project. Since the frame was already black I didn’t have to do anything to it.
One coffee burlap sack… FREE!! Yep… FREE! I called one of our local coffee shops and asked if they ever had any coffee sacks. The guy said I could stop by and pick one up. :-) I cut a piece of the burlap to fit the backing I took out of the frame. I wasn’t sure if I should use the glue gun to attach the burlap to the cardboard backing or not, but hey, I didn’t have a lot of time, so I gave it a go. Worked just fine.
Another small frame… $1.50
I knew that I wanted to use a small picture at the top of the larger frame so that it wasn't JUST silverware thrown on there. I found this small frame in my stash which was the perfect size. I took out the glass and spray painted it black.
Picture I already had (scanned and resized)… FREE!
I hot glued the picture into the small frame. I then took that small frame and hot glued it to the upper portion of the larger frame.
Goodwill silverware finds… $.19 each
This picture is just a small sampling of the silverware I have been collecting. I went through all of the pieces and pulled out some of my favorites to use.
Final step was to lay out the silverware in a pattern that I liked. Once I was happy with the layout I hot glued each piece unto the burlap backing.
The only thing left to do was to hang it on the wall!! (Once I’ve finished the whole kitchen I’ll post all the final pictures!!) It’s safe to say though, that I absolutely LOVE it. Even my hubby said it was one of his favorite things! Not bad for a little over five bucks!!!!!!
Now I've got to go find some parties to link up to... come on, LET'S PARTY!!!!! Can you do me a favor? When you leave a comment can you let me know which Linking Party brought you here. Thanks!!!!
