Weekend Score & crafty idea

Are you as busy as I am right now (this time of year) I wanted to share my {last} weekend score - just some Christmas goodies...

Cute right and I am happy to report that they just sold on ebay this yesterday. Whooopie...

Gear shift... I know you have seen all the rage over DEER right? Well I wanted to try my hand at making some sort of Holiday art piece at a minimal cost in case it didn't turn out well. Can I just say that I DONE good... Here are the supplies you'll need to make this wonderful piece of HIP art.

I am thinking that the nose needs to be glitterfied with some red glitter...The idea behind my thought process was that I really wanted to incorporate a chalkboard background...So I picked up this reindeer wood piece at MICHAEL'S (BTW-all holiday wood is 70% off right now-SCORE) and I bought a large 11 x 13 frame at the dollar store
this cost me a total of 2.00 ---most of the other stuff I had at home.

I sprayed the DEER head gold - then pulled out my modge podge and glitter and got busy!

did the glittering in 2 parts
next I sprayed the frame red and painted the glass part with chalkboard'll need at least 3 coats of paint to give the glass a good coverage and less chance of peeling off...

Don't forget to prime the chalk board by rubbing chalk all over the glass - in both directions

add your deer then your chalk art - I learned the hard way (DUH)

I think this came out wonderfully and I have another one I am working on that is a bit more classy - once the red nose is added on this one for our living room I thought a nice classy one would work for another part of our house.
I hope you try it out - its a  cheap THRILL --- but cool piece.
I am linking this project up to the parties above.
Have a delightful Holiday season...
