Wood Scraps and Modpodge

A couple of months ago we had some construction going on here.
The man who was hanging the drywall had some scraps of wood left over and asked me if I would like to keep them for my outdoor fireplace. Being the hoarder that I am, I grabbed a few of them up for a future crafty project. Does hoarding count if you actually use the stuff you save? Just wondering because yesterday I got busy in the studio and actually used those wood scraps. I turned them into something much nicer than firewood I think.
 A little white paint dry brushed onto the front and edges after a light sanding.
Then some paper and modpodge.
 Once they were dry I got out my trusty old drill and drilled holes for wire hangers and some for adding beads to the bottoms. I used one of my hand stitched felt beads on one and a pretty stone bead on another.
 I'm dreaming up another crafty project for tomorrows blog post.
Hope you stop in to have a look!
Thanks for dropping by!!!



  1. I loved this so much that I pinned it. Love the recycled use of materials. It makes me feel justified in hoarding random stuff I find.

    1. Thank you so much Holly! I felt better about my hoarding issue too this past week. I was finally getting around to using a few of my hoarded objects and I managed to pass up my favorite flea market over the weekend. It's a start ; )
