I think one of my most favorite crafty things to do is to alter things. I love looking for things that have another purpose or that can be spruced up and made beautiful again. I also love trying Glue Dots® on different mediums. I've tried paper, plastic, metal, acrylic, cork, and now wood. This little cute crate was plain pine and pretty boring. I love the bright pink and cute little flowers.
I used Glimmer Mist Chalkboard in Polka Dot Pink and Strawberry Shortcake all over. I did mist it down with water first. It really helped to spread the ink around. It is super sparkly and almost glowy in person. I used Glue Dots® Permanent to attach the flowers and Glue Dots® Lines to attach the chipboard piece on the front.
I put this little piece of chipboard on the back. I used Glue Dots® Permanent to attach it.
I gave it a good misting of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Mist all over the entire thing. I love it that the Glue Dots® don't come off even if I give it a good misting, they always stay put. Love that.
I hope you are inspired to look for things to alter and give new life to an old piece or even spruce up something new. It's easy with Glue Dots®! I think this is super cute for little girl treasures. You could even do green or blue for a boy and his rock collection. :)
