Puffy Dimensional Paint Doilies! #tbt

Puffy Dimensional Paint Doilies!
Perfect Valentine Day decor!
 Start with a doily or pattern.  
Just google doily...print off a pic and you are good to go!
Cover with wax paper.
Use Puff paint to trace the pattern.
 Start in the middle and work your way out, 
just like you are crocheting it yourself!
Keep your lines connected so it comes off in one piece!
 Parts will come out thicker than others...this is fine!

 Let it dry.  Mine dried all weekend, so I don't know exactly how long it needs...
Gently peel off of the wax paper!  If the wax paper doesn't come off completely, let it soak in some warm water in the sink.  It should just peel off!
 Perfect!  A plastic puff paint doily!
 Probably best not to use as a trivet and put hot things on...but it's great for decor!
You can do holiday themes too!
A spider web for Halloween, a leaf for Autumn, flowers...etc!
 Puffy Dimensional paint also sticks to glass!
Make your own window clings!
Or turn it into fashionable jewelry with a little ribbon!
 Perfect for a little wrist!

Leather Chevron Dangle Earrings!

 Leather Chevron Dangle Earrings!
 I got a bunch of scrap leather at the craft store.
 And I cut 2 little chevron shapes out of Marsala colored leather.
I didn't think I'd have any use for the Pantone Color of the Year 2015...but here it is!
 You'll also need:
2 earring backs
Jump rings
 And if you are lucky enough to have a leather punch...
punch 2 holes in the top of the chevrons...
otherwise you can use a big needle.
 Hook a jump ring through the hole and to the end of the chain.
 Loop it over as far as you want your earrings to dangle...and then loop it to the other side.
 Add the jump ring with the earring back right in the center...
and repeat for the other earring.
 Looks fabulous!
 Totally chic!
