I love quick and easy projects and this one was right up my alley....
You know how I love to bid at online auction, and I won this chum with the highest bid of.....Drum Roll Please!!!....ONE measly Rand. How much is that in dollar terms? $0.11...I did a quick conversion online...lol.
Seems like no one saw a use for this humble, old metal painter's tray, but I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it!
I bought a litre of Dekro roof paint which cost a third of the price of chalk board paint. Its waterbased, goes on smooth, with great coverage and you can right on it with chalk!
I used the sprayable adhesive to adhere the fabric word tags to the tray. What's great about this adhesive? It is not permanent, so I can change out the fabric word tags for something else when I feel like it.
This is how I made the tags:
I typed the words on my computer. I sprayed an A4 card stock page with the sprayable adhesive, cut my fabric to size and smoothed it over the paper. I placed it into my printer and ran it through.
I peeled the fabric off the paper and cut out each tag to stick to the tray.
The little tick shows how well chalk writes on the roof paint surface!
I ran a ribbon through the openings at the back. tied a bow and hung it!
And there you have it, easy as pie and dirt cheap too!
I hope you are enjoying the coming of Spring and all your Easter preparations! Here in Cape Town we are getting ready for the long, wet winter months...brrr!
