Spring Wood Tea Tray and Statement Necklace! #madewithmichaels #plaidcrafts

I wrote this post as part of a paid campaign with Plaid Crafts, 
Michaels and Blueprint Social. The opinions in this post are my own.
 I am absolutely in love with GOLD and PINK!
I think it's from the latest episodes of Downton Abbey...and it's perfect for Spring!
I am also totally gaga about Michaels Spring Wood Surfaces...laser cut shapes,
 frames, words, and swirly pieces!
I was sent a variety of shapes, paints and fun.
I knew instantly I wanted a laser cut wood necklace!
 I'm going to demonstrate how to do both...
Let's start with the glitter tea tray!
 Start with a bare wood tray.
This one is square and is perfect for an entry way or bookshelf!
 I used gold metallic paint, glitter modpodge, and glitter paint...and all the gold glitter I had left!
I would have used more gold glitter if I had more...instead I used all the yellow glitter too.
 I used a plastic cup for easy clean up.
I didn't measure, I just dumped about half of my modpodge and
a bunch of paint and all the glitter.
 Stir it up with a popsicle stick...again, easy clean up!
 And then I just dumped it all out in my tray!
 I used the power of gravity to move the paint around the entire inside.
 And used the rest of the paint in my cup and painted all the inside edges and walls.
 Then let it dry completely.
Some paint seeped through the laser cut edge...
But no worries.
I used cameo pink acrylic paint and painted all the outside pale pink!
Let it dry and repeat.
2 coats are always better than one.
 I love the contrast of the pale rosey pink and the sparkles of the gold glitter!
It's hard to tell it's super sparkly, but it is!
 Great for entry way decor,
or filling with fun pieces on a bookshelf.
 My next project was jewerly!
I ended up receiving various laser cut swirly spring wood surfaces.
I spray painted them silver, then used E6000 to glue them together.
Let it dry completely.
Next I hooked a chain with a clasp onto 2 of the loops on the wood.
Just like this!
I love that it's intricate and looks like a bib statement necklace.
Super cool and unique jewelry!
I love how bright and shiny it is!
