Until our Shanty Shopping Spree to Waco. We visited a place called Spice. This is a wonderful store with very creative knick knacks although they come with a hefty price tag…needless to say I bought nothing there but we came away with MANY great ideas. We fell in love with these black vintage-looking bowling pins so I decided to transform my transformation once again. I painted her in 2 coats of Behr Forever Black Satin.
She was a little boring all black so I decided to personalize her a bit with my Cricut. I dry brushed with a “T” stencil (initial of our last name) using Antique White acrylic and a stencil paint brush.
Ahh….that’s much better…I wonder how she’d look with some twine….
I have a quick confession to make ~ I have never owned a glue gun in my life ~ I always wing it with super glue or whatever adhesive I find around the house but I found this cheap-o glue gun at Hobby Lobby for $2.50 with my coupon so I caved and bought it. Whit made fun of my new “tool” but she works like a charm! Ha!
I put a dab of glue at the top of the pin and started to wrap the twine tightly around the top. I repeated this step every full wrap around to the back.
Now for a little extra ~ I have had 3 of these decorative balls for years and wasn’t really sure what to do with them….
I decided to make them a part of my bowling pin project. I started by painting them with 2 coats of Behr Cozy Cottage Satin.
I will be posting this on Between Naps on the Porch for Met Monday! Go check it out!
