StarFish Wall Hanging

I’ve been in the crafting MOOD. Seriously.
So besides all the Christmas crafts we’ve been doing (which I’ll show you tomorrow or Tuesday) I’ve been doing home decor ones too 🙂

Like this one.

Started with a cheap white outcast cupboard door from Totem. Good times right Jen?? 🙂
Sanded it down a bit and rubbed it all over with this and then wiped it off with a wet cloth (sorry totally blurry basement evening picture!!)
To get this effect.

Then drew on my hanging holes.
And used my fancy dancy drill
Used some cool ribbon from SEI that my nice friend Mary gave me forever ago. Strung it through and tied some knots.

Then Glue gunned on my Nova Scotia star fish. Perfect-o!

I am not joking when I say the entire thing took my… oh about…. 10 minutes. Start to finish. Sweeet.

I bought 3 other cupboard doors and 2 of them are also finished crafts and hanging in my home. I’ll show them soon!

    Christy and Brett Bevans - This is really really cute. I have a star fish that I got from California. I should make this same thing. Thanks for the idea!

    Amy - Looks great! I’m amazed first of all that you found a star fish. Are they abundant in N.Scotia, cuz they were no where to be seen in the Caribbean. And second, I’m amazed it’s survived all your moves, so fragile!
