I’m still working on my big room switch-a-roonie for Little Cutie and needed to come up with something for over her bed. I have “issues” with hanging anything too large or heavy over beds even though we don’t live in a location with even remotely a risk of earthquakes. Yet another thing I’m neurotic about ~ the list goes on and on!
So I found this huge cardboard ‘S’ (15″x22″) at Joann’s Fabric & Crafts and lucked out in that it was both on sale and I had a coupon, bringing it down to about $5.
I first thought about just painting it a bright color to coordinate with her new bedding and then I walked past the jars of Mod Podge and got an idea. I had just bought some fun Lilly Pulitzer wrapping paper in the same colors as her room, and liked the idea of another bright print but not a perfect match.
All I did was tear up pieces of wrapping paper, dab on some Mod Podge with a disposable foam brush and then cover the paper with another coat of Mod Podge. SUPER easy and SUPER messy. I don’t normally do very messy craft projects and I LOVED it. I was so in the zone and I totally get now why every time my children start a project they feel the need to use an entire bottle of Elmer’s glue for one small thing. Sticky fingers are fun!
And here’s the finished product. I think it will look sweet over her bed against a bright turquoise wall. Now I just have to decide if I want a hidden hanger or to use a hot pink satin ribbon and this fun knob in green as a hook. What do you think?
