I have a couple of last minute Thanksgiving-related projects I'm trying to finish up before next week and as I get them done, I'll share 'em here in case you want to recreate one on your own. The first of the projects will only take 5 minutes (not including drying time). So let's start with that one...
I found these really cool salad servers at Target (from The Curiosity Shoppe - only $10 online) and immediately put them in my cart. I'm not a big salad tong kind of girl, but for some reason I felt like I had to have these. Plus, we're having a couple of people over our house this year for Turkey Day, so why not do it up?
I painted each arrow's fletching (or 'feather') for a pop of color amongst the sea of browns and tans with turkey, potatoes, and stuffing galore on Thanksgiving. Here's how I did it...
Supplies: paint brush, acrylic paint, acrylic sealant or matte medium, sand paper
How-To: Very lightly sand the area so your paint has something to stick to. Wipe away debris and go straight into painting. You can use a primer if you want to, but it's not really necessary in this case. I painted three layers for each color and used a sporadic color pattern. Seal the paint with an acrylic sealer or matte medium and you are ready to use. Hand wash only.
Do you have any Thanksgiving-related projects you are working on right now? I'd love to know what you have cooking for the 22nd.
