A Rockin' Accent Piece {Monday Made It}

Yippee!  It's Monday again!  You know what that means, it means I'm linking up with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics for her super fun Monday Made It linky!

When I was at Michael's one day, I stumbled upon a guitar shaped frame in the wood section.  It was cheap and I just knew I could do something with it in my new rock star classroom.  Here is what I came up with.  I love it!


I am going to use it as wall decor.  Right now, I am planning to place it in the corner of one of my bulletin boards.

Instead of nailing it to the wall, I will be using my favorite hanging tool, 3M hanging velcro.  I LOVE this stuff (I'm pretty sure that I've shared that with you before).

 See, I love them so much, I buy the value pack (and, it's already half empty).  Hehe.

These are the materials I used to make this little gem:


The paint is my favorite part.  It has glitter in it!  What?! I was going to try and figure out how to put glitter in it myself, but as soon as I saw this, I was sold!  I mean, glitter and rock stars go hand in hand!

I also used these materials.

First, I painted the guitar using the turquoise Craft Smart Paint.


Then, I painted the glitter paint over it (it is too sheer to use on wood by itself).


Finally, I cut the scrapbook paper to size and placed it in the photo slot.  I finished the whole project by tying a bow and hot gluing it to the guitar handle.


I loved how it turned out that I made a second one to match!
