In an attempt to make these tools more decorative for a ladies meeting, I tried the freezer paper transfer method to apply some verses that went along with a construction theme. Once you have tried transferring with the freezer paper method, I promise you too will want to print on anything that stands still! These tools would be perfect for that man cave or fancy garage or workshop or displaying grandpa’s old tool box, Father’s Day or masculine birthday.
anything that is not wall art. Vases , boxes, bookends, containers, centerpieces, other decorative items
I got this canvas material on sale. I think that it resembles burlap. It is almost a cross between the burlap look and the muslin look. So I made some large script stamps to stamp it with! I cut it into strips with rotary cutters and frayed the edges. After I stamped using a fabric stamp pad, I spritzed it with glimmer spray. Hello $22 a roll ribbon for under a dollar!
I wanted my pinecones white, but painting them was tedious. I finally thinned my paint down and dipped them. They were all open. I am a little disappointed because when I put them in the oven to dry they all closed up of course, but I was expecting them to pop back out when I put them outside to cool off (it is below freezing today). Maybe I painted them shut. Next time no oven! But I do like the tint effect!
