I am glad to join Traci at http://www.beneathmyheart.blogspot.com with Best DIY Projects of March. I cannot believe the talent on here. But wanted to share my little $3 project. I call it my musical notes creations.
I bought these 3 pieces (soap holder, lotion dispenser, and toothbrush holder) from the Dollar Tree.
The stickers on the bottoms was really hard to get off. So...took my "must keep in the house" Goo-Gone product and in a second...no lie, a second, those little mean labels came right off.
Made copies of songs, musical notes and scripture out of an Hymnal. Then I cut them up...anyway I could to make it easy.
The Modpodge treatment began! I done 2 coats letting each coat dry before applying the next coat. When the pieces were dry I took outside and sprayed a coat of Acrylic Sealer and let them dry.
I had the ribbon and rossettes already so decided to add a pretty finishing touch. I thought the outcome was really cute and very cheap! Decided this little set with lotion, paper clips, pens and pencils needed to go on my friends desk at work. My friend Vicky has such a beautiful voice and can sing her some gospel music that I couldn't look at the wonderful words of some old time hymns and not think of her.
