A finished Pinterest project!

I've done several Pinterest projects, but this is the first one I've taken pictures of as I worked on it. This was supposed to be a necklace holder (and still may) by adding drawer pulls, but it turned out so pretty I don't know if I can bring myself to poke holes in it. I like it enough to hang it on the wall as art! Which wall I'm not sure but I'm sure I could find a place. 

Old cardboard print with gold frame from a garage sale. 

I had all the supplies on hand (that's the main reason I choose this project). Scrapbook paper, Mod Podge, paint, scissors, and paint brush. 

I painted it black. It covered well after 2 coats. While the paint dried, I cut out the paper pedals. 

I laid the design out and moved it around until I liked the way it looked.

I Mod Podged the whole thing. The paint was flat and the Mod Podge glossy, so I covered the whole thing. If I were to do this again, I would put Mod Podge on the back side of the pedals before covering the front to decrease wrinkling. 

The finished project!
