Tutorial Tuesday #3: DIY Kitchen Decor

Pin It

Another Tuesday is here yet again. Summer is going way too fast. Today's project was supposed to be last weeks. I finally got around to going back to WalMart to get hooks to hang these babies. Also, this project is so simple, I almost feel like I'm cheating you. So instead, I'm going to tell you how I made both parts to my kitchen wall decor.

The EAT was ridiculous how simple it was. It honestly shouldn't even count as a craft because I don't feel like I did anything. Basically, I went and bought 3 chipboard letters at the Hobs Lobs, used some black spray paint I already had, and sprayed away. I think the hardest part was waiting for it to dry. Sad, right?

I used a small sawtooth photo hanger on the back of each letter and hung them with a nail to give my final project.

The framed silverware was a project I found and completed a little over a year ago when I was first getting started with my crafting obsession and hadn't started medical school yet. It was right after Pinterest had first gotten started and I pretty much made every little craft I could find. Literally. I did two months of "a craft a day." You know, sort of like everyone does that "photo a day" thing. Now I don't have the time or the money for that. Sad day.
But, back to the framed silverware. I bought 2 forks, 2 spoons and 2 knives at the dollar store and spray painted them red. I did the same thing to the frames tht were also snagged from the dollar store. I bought 8.5"x11" damask scrapbook paper and glued it to the cardboard back that came with the frames. I used some E6000 to glue down the silverware to the paper and it's been holding steady ever since. I wish I had thought to spray the paper with some sealant before gluing down the silverware, but I guess it wasn't crucial since they still look as good as the day I made them.

And there you have it. Another Tutorial Tuesday has come and gone! Hope everyone has a great week. Happy crafting!
