Small Craft Storage




  I've had this small wooden mail holder around for quite some time.  I purchased it months ago from the thrift store.  Today I decided to something with it!


  I placed stickers on the mail holder,


and gave it a couple coats of spray paint.

 
Once the paint dried, I peeled the letters off.  It looked plain, so I decided to add to it.


  I cut small triangles pennants from leftover fabric.


 

  *Quick tip:  When cutting shapes from fabric, try placing a piece of thick, sturdy paper behind the fabric.  It makes cutting through fabric A LOT easier!


  Using my glue gun, I attached the pennants to the holder.  I added rosettes made of twine and felt leaves to finish it off.




  It's the perfect size to store small craft items!
