Description

SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Clothespins
  • Silver spray paint
  • Glitter spray paint
  • Loose silver glitter (optional)
  • Cardstock: White, Black, Red
  • Corner punch
  • Crate
  • Gray paint
  • Paintbrush

  • Cricutmachine & alphabet template

  • 1” pouncer
DIRECTIONS:
  1. Spray paint all sides of clothespins silver. Spray with glitter spray paint. If you want a heavier glittered surface, spray with glitter spray paint and shake on loose glitter while the surfaces are still very wet. Pat glitter down lightly with your finger, and let dry thoroughly before handling.
  2. Sand all surfaces with sandpaper for a smooth finish and to expose some of the original wood.
  3. Pour gray paint onto a Styrofoam plate, and add water to dilute it. Paint the watery mix onto all surfaces of the crate (in stages) and allow to dry.
  4. While paint is still wet on bottom rung, add silver glitter.
  5. After paint dries, add black dots to glitter rung using pouncer.
  6. Cut out 5” Cricutletters in Red and Black. Cut out white cardstock rectangles and round the corners. Mount on black cardstock and round the corners. Attach the overlapping black and red letters to the centers of each card.
  7. Attach the cards to the top of the crate with clothespins.
