As promised, I’m back to deliver a second Spring decor craft!
First, I needed a cheap rectangle platter.
Isn’t this friggin’ AWESOME?!!
I especially love the huge teethy grin this Tiki is sporting.
Who am I kidding? This platter is seriously hideous. Thank goodness it was only a dollar.
First thing first, it’s plastic, so I painted it with spray paint for plastic. (I didn’t want my *real* color chipping off, so I used this first as a base coat.)
Looking better already!
Next, I added some Timberline Green acrylic paint. Not sure this is going to work or not…
So far so good.
After the first coat dried I added a 2nd coat to make it nice and green.
Now the fun begins!!
(I said I had a fun Spring VINYL project, didn’t I? I don’t lie.)
As always, my vinyl comes from the talented and lovely Shelley over at Wonderfully Wordy.
I chose this “Spring” vinyl, because, well, why not? Look at it! It’s beautiful!
I originally saw this vinyl on a project she did. I knew the second I saw it I had to have one of my very own.
Isn’t this just beautiful?
I ordered it that very second. I also used her same paint color (Timberline Green).
I was actually going to copy hers exactly, but uh… well… er… um… Have you tried to make those roses? Easy? Pfffpt. I tried, they died. Platter it is!
After I added the vinyl I painted the entire thing with a coat of clear gloss.
Then I attached the plate hanger:
Love my platter,
HATE LOATHE the plate rack hooks.
They are beyond tacky. Seriously, totally lamespice.
THANK goodness my new Dischangers arrived the very next day!
The Dischangers were super duper easy to attach. I ran out of picture wire, so I temporarily used dental floss to tie between the Dischangers. Oops. Seems to work fine for now. Probably because the platter is like 2 ounces.
Much prettier looking without that hideous plate hanger showing.
I love Shellie’s as well, but I like that I ended up putting my own unique twist on it.
*No Tiki’s were harmed in the creation of this Spring Decor.
