So let me start by saying Happy Mother's Day to all you mom's out there and all of us at GSLC and we hope that you have a wonderful day today spent with your kids and family and maybe even get in a little crafty time to make something fun with them.
Today my project is something you can make as a gift or something to decorate for your own house. We have an beautiful chipboard set called "the Flower Cart". I thought about doing this alot of ways. You could even put wood paper on to make it look more rustic or paint it in shades of brown to look like a weathered piece of wood but i wanted mine to be a neutral color so that i can change the flowers out if i wanted or even add a plant inside.
So first i glued it all together and let it dry and then i painted the whole thing white with acrylic paint (2 coats) and let it dry again. Then i took some texture paste in white and found a pretty wall paper stencil and added the design it to all the sides of the cart and let it dry. Then i went over the whole thing again with white chalk paint.
One of my favorite parts of this adorable little cart are these cute little wheels with all those pretty details in them. I painted them white to match and when they were dry i hot glued them onto the sides and then added those cute little brads in the center of each of them. For the flowers i bought some pretty aqua ones at my local hobby store and used a piece of styrofoam to hold them inside of the cart. I added 2 aqua colored netted bows and tucked them inside the flowers to fill the space. And it's all done!! Now i can put it somewhere to add color in my house or give it to a special person in my life. It was really super easy to make too.
Hope you liked this adorable Flower cart and be sure and check out the store for lots of new things to get a little crafty!!
