Just a little paint..


I made a trip to IKEA last weekend and picked a pack of trivets.I have seen so many pretty projects on pinterest with these that I decided to try a project myself!The original inspiration is at -
 Here is what I used:

 That's all you need folks! I used the Scotch tape to make random patterns on the trivets.

Then the fun part! I picked a acrylic paints in lovely teal (my current favorite), cheery yellow and a chocolate brown for my trivets. I just picked a space in the patterns and started painting. Here they are, almost finished.

I let them dry a bit and while the paint is still slightly wet, I ripped off the scotch tape. The lines are more sharper when that is done. Let them dry completely.

I absolutely love the color combination! This would make an easy DIY personalized gift for Christmas. Don't you think so?
