Have you guys ever seen this fun magazine?
The Lowes Creative Ideas magazines are fabulous!!!
I was recently asked to be a part of the Lowes Creators & Influencers Network. That means each month I get to share a fun idea based on a certain theme made with items you can find at Lowes- I am so excited to be a part of this! Being a part of this network also means I get to host a monthly GIVEAWAY from prizes (such as gift cards) from Lowes just for my readers! YIPEE!!!
The theme for this month is “Trick or Treat” and in this month’s edition of the Creative Ideas Magazine, I found this cute idea for a silhouette painted on wood.
Using the silhouette idea and the “Trick or Treat” theme, here is the idea I came up with:
Here is how I did it…
1. I found an image of the witches shoes on a doormat on Shopko.com. Using that image and my vinyl cutter, I made some vinyl to go on a piece of wood- any scrap piece of wood will do.
2. Next I painted the wood directly on top of the vinyl and let it dry.
3. Lastly I simply peeled off the vinyl stickers so the wood is seen. This picture doesn’t do a good job at showing how cool the grain on the wood looks coming through the paint- I love this look!
I love how it turned out!
The kind people at Lowes would like to offer 1 Somewhat Simple reader a $50 gift card to their store!
