Project Day - Covering Myself








Hair spray, deodorant, creams, and the list goes on. And they all sit in our bathrooms looking [most of the time] drab. I decided I wanted to see more "pretty" in my bathroom today. You will need:
  • Scraps of paper and fabrics
  • Spray adhesive
  • Scissors
  • Pen
This project works best with item that are perfectly cylindrical. Odd shaped items are harder.

  • Make a pattern of each item by tracing around the edges on the reverse side of your paper/fabric.
  • Cut out the pattern and trim off any excess so that it fits snug.
  • Adhere the piece to your item with spray adhesive making sure you have an overlap so it will adhere nice and neatly.
Use all kinds of scraps in different patterns. This gives a mis matched look [which I love so much!]
Now I think that has made a wonderful difference don't you.
Have a great weekend everyone.

  7. Cute idea! Although, I'll never do it. Scissors + Glue = Disaster in my hands. But perhaps if I ply a crafty friend with offers of wine and food ...
