my shutter creation

annielu

Found some shutters in the trash, and got the skates for a buck!

Thought I'd post em since I haven't been here awhile!

Well, how cute! Did you do the painting on the skates yourself? If so, great job!

Where are you going to put it?

I really like the way you decorated the shutter. The ornaments that look like bread...are they? The skates are icing on the cake...uhh, I mean shutter. Great job!

Thanks all!
I did the painting onthe skates also. The ornaments are made from osnaburg and then I used modge podge and sprinkled them with mica.
I have a craft show in December, so this will hopefully be sold!

Annielu, I am going to show my ignorance here and say that I had to look up "osnaburg" to see what it is! LOL It made really neat ornaments.

I guess I need to start grabbing shutters when I see them at the curb...I love these!! It could be as simple or as complicated as you want it to be. If you don't like to paint, you really don't have to. You can add whatever you want on them! Thanks so much for sharing these!

That looks great! I would never have thought to hang the skates on the shutter. Of course, I'd never have been able to paint the skates as wonderfully as you did, so I'd probably be hiding the skates not displaying them.
Great Job!!
