Thrift Flip DIY Home Decor

Anyone else have a huge pile of "future craft projects"? 

I sure do! And this year as I part of my spring cleaning I am trying to clear out my stash and finish those projects.  I found these plaques at a thrift store for only ten cents each and I knew I could make them into something cool.  

I grabbed my DIY Paint in Little Black Dress and Crinoline and my new DIY Paintbrush the Little Dipper. 


Have you seen those vintage butterfly collections?  I love them, but I have to admit I really do not want dead butterflies on my wall.  So I had a better idea.  I decided I would use the new JRV Rice Paper in Scientific Butterfly and DIY Paint Crystal Clear Liquid Patina as my favorite decoupage medium. I also added a little sparkle with DIY Paint Golden Rule Gilding Wax.

You can watch the whole transformation on my YouTube channel in my latest video.

I love how they turned out I am keeping these for myself.

Now get out there to salvage, repurpose & create!
