I wanted to doll up my ladder back chairs in our dining room. It took about 2 hrs from start to finish....with drying time!!!

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • Cardboard
  • white gesso
  • paint brush
  • doolollies (buttons clothes pins etc..
  • cardstock
  • border punch of your choice
  • string of faux pearls
  • fabric
  • seam binding and/or ribbon

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

I started with a cardboard box.
I ripped it open and cut 4 triangles for the banners.
I distressed the triangles by ripping some of the smooth paper off to reveal the corrugated paper underneath.
I then used white gesso and scrumbled some on hap-hazardly. Let it dry and meanwhile I used my Expression and the Old West cartridge and cut out the letters.
Black shadow and patterened DSP was cut at 4-1/4"
Used some dimensionals and placed them on the center of the triangles.
I torn a piece of a patterned velum and adhered it with clear glue. Glued down a white button and also a small white clothes pin.
Then using a border punch and white card stock I made the scallop edges.
Then using a hot glue gun I adhered some pearl strings around the edges and left long tails at the bottom.
Then I ripped some fabric strips and used some white and black seam binding and tied it around the tails of the pearls to make a faux tassel.
Added some more torn fabric to the top corners for hanging.
