“You are my sunshine!” I think that is a great little thing that everyone wants to hear from someone else every once in a while. Here is a very yellow project to celebrate the Rainbow Blog Hop 2014!
I painted this wooden ring that I think is supposed to be for making wreaths with the Sun Yellow Dual Paint and Primer. While it was drying in my makeshift spray paint setup, I decided to make it int0 a sun.
I gave it a few coats of paint and my lesson was that with the lighter colors, an extra coat is a good thing for best coverage. When it was totally dry, I traced the inside of it onto a square piece of cork with a Sharpie then cut it out leaving about 1/2 inch extra all the way around to glue to the base.
Then I cut lots of yellow ribbon into 7 inch long (or so) pieces and use my super heavy duty Adtech glue gun to glue them to the back of the painted wooden circle. I then looped them and glued again. When they were all looped and glued, I added the cork with the Adtech gun.
When I flipped it back over I added my “Sunshine Yellow” buttons from Buttons Galore scattered all over with hot glue. Then added a wire handle with a hand painted polka-dotted bead.
Lastly, I added a little message that I lettered and colored with my markers.
Then I hung it up! It adds a bright touch to the room for sure.
