If you want to start from the beginner than head on over to our host Cicily at Pink Dalmation Scrapper and hop your way thru some amazing home decor. The Pink Dalmatian is giving away blog candy, you can see all the details on her post. Some of the other hoppers may be giving away candy to so be sure & check them out.
We all have drawers, closets & possibly rooms full of scrapbooking supplies. Those beautiful, colorful supplies don't have to be limited to our pages. We hope to inspire you to use your supplies in Home Decor projects that add that special touch to our homes. I have come up with two different menu boards that would be a great addition to any kitchen.
I love to have my glass of wine in the evening. My project today lets you incorporate both the corks and the labels from your favorite bottles.
I started with a 12 X 12 canvas and modge podged a piece of Harlequin Cream paper by 7gypsies on to the canvas. On top of that I modge podged several different labels from my favorite wines.
*To remove labels from your wine bottles set your oven to 350º, when your oven reaches temperature place your wine bottles in for approx. 10 minutes and when you remove the bottles the lables should peel off easily. This method works for most labels.
I also modge podged on the letters "Vintage Wine" which are from a Tim Holtz paper.
When the modge podged papers dried I sprayed the with Walnut Ink Antiquing Solution by Tsukineko, and then immediately wiped it with a soft cloth. Then put a coat of modge podge over the entire board.
Next I glued a 4 X 4 pice of cork in the middle. On the cork I glued metal letters to say "MENU" and a clip to hold your paper.
Throughout the board I randomly glued some wine corks.
I also attached a couple of cute wine related push pins.
Voila a cute menu board for you kitchen or bar!
