Hey all! I posted yesterday about some Star Wars signs I made my nephew for his birthday & today I'm going to show you a couple other items I made for his new room.
I also made him an art board where he could display his drawings or school papers or whatever he wanted.
Then I also mounted a poster to some MDF board to make an XL piece of wall art.
I gave it 2 coats of Krylon satin black spray paint & let it dry.
While it was drying, I painted some clothespins with Krylon's brilliant metallic silver spray paint.
I don't have pictures of every step since this was right before I started blogging, but these are simple steps.
Once everything was dry, I hot glued the clothespins to the board, evenly spaced.
Again, I used the distant Galaxy font I downloaded from Da Font to make the lettering for the board.
I used a fun apple green for this.
I was sticking to 'Yoda' green, black & silver for all the projects.
I aligned & applied the lettering to the board & added hangers to the back.
|Sorry for the poor picture quality, I never thought they would end up on a blog.|
For his poster, I simply took a scrap piece of MDF & painted around the edges with colors from the poster. I could have cut it down to exact size so I had no overhang, but it was so close & easier to just paint it.
I mixed up a few different colors to try & match the poster colors as close as possible.
Once it dried I coated the board with Mod Podge.
and placed the poster on it.
I smoothed out all the bubbles & wrinkles, first with a towel then with a credit card.
Another coat was applied to the top of the poster and it dried.
I have just a few more projects to show you that I made for his birthday including a lamp, vinyl trash can, door hanger, and a light up Darth Vader mask.
Until next time!
