Why am I calling this my "Burner Cover Chickie Sign"? Well, I made the sign out of a stovetop burner cover. Yep, I really did! On my last trip to the Dollar Tree I was overcome with a burst of creativity and saw a two pack of burner covers to which I thought, "Boy, those would make a perfect base for a circular sign". So I grabbed a pack and went home and got to work, this was the result!
I stole some of my daughter's lined writing practice paper, that is was I used to cover the sign. I cut it into strips and just randomly placed them over the cover with matte Mod Podge. Using strips worked really well, made it very easy to cover the sides. I used some chipboard embellishments, fabric flowers, rub-ons, ribbon and tulle to finish it off. The "chickies" are a downloaded graphic from The Graphic Fairy.
I used the above stamp, which I thought was perfect on a piece of cardstock and used foam to float mount it. The gold sparkly ribbon edging is absolutely perfect in my opinion, I love how it looks. I just hot glued the pink tulle in loops to the edge and then cut each loop with scissors to give it the spiky, frayed look.
I am just WAY happy with the overall finished product. Looks vintage and fun for Easter without being overly "Bunny Rabbit Easter", do you know what I mean? I'm linking up to the following:
