Plain to Pretty

Hi Everyone,
Lisa from Lisa's Craftroom here for my monthly design. Thank you Sheila for having me again.

I bought this large clothespin from Michael's quite some time ago. I have it on a shelf in my scraproom and I keep a picture in it. I have been looking at it and thinking that it needs something. It was already painted blue. My scraproom is a light blue. So when I bought the rolled flower die from Emma of My Creative Time, I got an idea.

It's a simple embellishment that makes the clothespin look much prettier, don't you think? First I tied some white tulle and then I hot glued the rolled flowers to it. I had some self adhered white chipboard letters, so I used a blue marker to color the letter L and adhered it to the clothespin. I glued some gems to each center. I think it came out so cute.
Well, I hope you like my plain to pretty project today. Thank you so much for visiting and commenting, it means alot to me. See you soon.

What a great idea, and so pretty! I love taking something we have picked up and putting our own stamp on it so to speak to make it our own creation. Thanks for sharing with us today at She's A Sassy Lady.
