Today should be our last day in Boundary Waters...depending on when you are reading this, we may or may not be off the water, but we will be back to civilization today sometime. Our first stop after returning the canoes will be the hotel for a HOT shower and some real food. Not that we didn't have real food on our trip, but by now I want some chicken or steak, no more fish for a while. I love fish but for 4 days of breakfast, lunch and dinner I am ready for something else. Also maybe a glass of wine to go with my meal. LOL
Anyway, onto my post... remember the tray I showed you for the "Christmas in July" blog hop last week? Well, my dear friend had given me two trays so I decided to make a Christmas present for Miss Bella and this is what I made...
|I just love these trays because they have legs.|
|Make sure you sand the tray a bit first so the paint will adhere best.|
|Then I painted the tray with black chalkboard paint.|
I used the Krylon paint and it is so awesome.
|It's very glossy right now, but that will change.|
|I cut all the letters and flowers with my E-craft out of vinyl|
and added some rhinestones to the centers of the flowers.
Then I taped off the center...
|and added a sealer to the rim of the tray. This way she won't|
be able to "pick" off the vinyl or the bling.
