Project Paris

With a little help from the Dollar Store,
 this wall art is quick,
 easy and so chic.
Starting with a light weight oval catering tray,
 paint, distress, sheet music graphic, wood letters and embellishments,
 you have a french wall design.
First I drilled holes at the top for adding ribbon for hanging and then I gave the metal tray a coat of glass and tile medium for a primer,
 let dry and then painted the background black and sanded off a bit for a little aged distress.
To the background,
I added a sheet music graphic from The Graphics Fairy
 and glued in place with mod podge and trimmed with silver edging.
Next I painted and glittered wood letters for PARIS,
 glued in place and added lace hem tape to the top for hanging.
 Accented with flower trims,
buttons, jewel trims like the little French Poodle pin and silk flower pin and feather brooch.

That's it, finished and ready to hang.
This idea can be created in many other ways and words that will fit on this
8 X 10 inch light weight metal tray from the Dollar Store.
Here is another style~
And I had to paint a few roses too.
Hope this gave you some ideas.
Have a great winter day.
