How many of us have baskets that we love throwing shoes into. I have tons of baskets used for multiple purposes but I wanted to designate one basket especially for shoes. So, with the extra ceiling fan blades lying around I decided why not.
I found this picture online and it became my inspiration for my basket
Following are pics, fairly easy, on how I did it. I started with a ceiling fan blade (with the holes puttied) and a print out.
I added the picture and print to some diluted coffee to age it. I let it in for about 15 minutes, but I probably should have left it soaking for longer.
Make sure to ball it up if you want that wrinkled affect.
By this time I had already painted my ceiling fan blades, sorry no pictures. I then glued the paper onto the painted blades using Mod Podge and once dried I brush over it.
I wasn't sure where I wanted to hang the sign, so initially I just sort of sat it on top of the basket
I later opted to glue it on top of the basket handles
I'm pleased with the results.
DON'T FORGET TO LET YOUR CREATIVITY FLOW!
