Craft Room - Inspiration Wall

I've been adding the final touches on the craft room.  I wanted an area where I could pin up some inspiration ideas when I rip something out of a magazine.  Back when I was doing the SYTYC competition, one of the challenges was a dollar store craft.  I bought these burner covers to scheme up an idea, but I ended up doing something else.  Well, I found a fun way to use them.  See?

They look like this in the store.  There's 2 in a pack - one smaller and one larger.

I spray painted the edges, since they wouldn't be covered.

I spread a layer of Modge Podge over the burner cover, placed the fabric on top, and painted on another layer of Modge Podge.  I didn't pre-cut the fabric because I wasn't sure if the Modge Podge would stretch it a bit.  Once the fabric dried, I trimmed the edges.

Then I bought some magnetic clips.  They were $1.50 for 4.  Since the burner covers are metal, they stay on perfectly.  I hung them up in my craft room so I could post inpiration on them or even leave them blank.  It kind of has the same feel as the embroidery hoops I've seen hung up in a lot of places.

Even if you don't want to do the same project, I think there are a lot of things you could do with the burner covers.  They could be the center of giant flowers in a little girls room.  I think they would look cool spray painted different colors, glued together in an interesting formation, and used as a memo board.  Let your mind run wild!

The whole craft room reveal is soon to come.  Thanks for reading my blog.  Have a lovely day.
