Little Mrs. Never Crafts

You know those people who make almost everything their wear, everything they have decorated their house with, everything in general?

"Ooooh!  You like my sweater?  I maaade it."

"Ssssseriously?  You LIKE this vase?  I made it you, know."

"The Valedictorrrrrrrrian?  I'm so crafty I knitted him in my womb."

...Apparently in my mind crafty people over enunciate their words as well as make a ton of stuff.

Regardless of their extra consonants, I aspire to be one of those people.  Within reason.  I promise I will never make a sweater, and I swear to never use the term "knitted him in my womb" ever again. Scouts honor.

In my assssspiration to be more like these crafty folks, I have made something that I am going to share with the blog world. Besides my photos, I am not a very crafty person, so this is attempt #1 to MAKE something that I won't eventually eat.

Here is the how-to for my craft project.

Buy a painting with lots of color on it. I chose Starry Nights.

Buy stick on letters, find a poem or a saying to put on the painting with your letters.

Stick on letter.  Yup.  That was the entirety of step three.  Way more complicated than it sounds.

Buy spray paint and cover the entire painting with the spray paint. Because my painting was pretty dark, I used 2-3 coats.  I say "I" used.  Really, 'twas the husband.

Let the spray paint dry before peeling of each of the letters, exposing the painting behind it.  Or be an impatient turd like me, and peel the letters off too soon.

STEP 6:  Proudly display your faux-painting/poem painting/WHATEVER you want to call it, on a sweet 70's recliner, and give it to your sister for her baby shower. :)

PS I thought of NONE of this. I found the poem and the craft project on Pinterest. :)
