I like to be warm!
So, when the iron craft challenge was posted I immediately thought of warms drinks. You know me! How to make that thought into a craft, though? I decided to make a Drink Station inspired by winter.
Step 1: Off to a good start, huh? Don't worry, I have a vision for these amazingly awful 30 yr old prints from the thrift store. $2 is right up my alley!
Step 2: I took the cardboard print out of one of the frames and placed my hooks.
Step 3: I used decoupage to cover the frame in pretty paper. I liked the added interest of the red in the middle and you'll see what I chose for the backing!
Step 4: I painted the second frame but left the artwork intact. There is a much brighter future here so don't lose heart. (my apologies if you like the cardboard artwork)
Step 5: I added my hooks, backer, snow/glitter and a bird to the first frame (seems fitting that my space- heater is discretely sitting in the background!). Finally, added my cups and hung it up!
Step 6: I painted over the print in the second frame with chalkboard paint. Just about ready....!
Step 7: I used picture wire to string curtain clips that can hold a variety of beverage options across the message board. ( all that's lacking is a place for some whiskey)
Voila! Add a little message and the drink station is ready!
