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.
