*COMMENT ON BOTH BLOGS AND BE ENTERED TO WIN SOME TERRIFIC LOOT and THE BIG-ASS BOOK OF BLING!
There is a place called Dollar King near where I live and let me tell you, it is UH-MA-ZING! I found masonite letters for 99c each and went nuts. As I was stuffing the entire alphabet in a cart I realized these were perfect for the HE CRAFTS SHE CRAFTS blog I write with my friend Stephenie (www.mycraftyadventures.com). So here we are! I opted for creating a free standing key holder that I could keep on my desk which could also work as a jewelry display on your dresser. Stephenie made a WONDERFUL holiday centerpiece with her "S" and I have to tell you, I'm a bit jealous......She always knows how to put the "S" in sparkle and shine!
Piece of wood large enough for the base of your letter
2 small "L" brackets
4 small nails or small hooks
Grey Krylon Primer
Black Krylon Fusion spray paint
Krylon metallic gold enamel pen
If you need to, sand and clean your pieces
Nail 4 small nails (or screw in 4 small hooks) for your keys in different areas
Glue the "L" brackets to the back of the letters making sure they are flush with the base of the letter
Glue the "L" brackets to the piece of wood for the base and let dry
Spray with the Krylon Primer and let dry for about 15 minutes
Spray with the Krylon black and let dry for 15 minutes
Take your metallic gold Krylon enamel pen and trace around the edges of the letter to get a nice gold edging. For the base of the letter, place a piece of paper on the base flush against the letter and carefully draw across the bottom.
