Personalized Wall Hanging

I went to a few yard sales this last weekend hoping to get some crafty inspiration....it worked! I bought several items that I plan to put my touch on. I saw a neat idea for personalizing plates at320 Sycamore. I used her idea and instructions to personalize a wall hanging. I got this nifty piece for 50¢. As you can see it was painted with a picture of fruit....not really my style. So I taped of the metal work and spray painted the tile an off-white. Then, I took a personalized napkin and cut out the G. I peeled away the back two layers and used Mod Podge to adhere it to the tile. The one layer of napkin is very delicate....so be careful if you try this. Brush on a thin layer of Mod Podge on the tile under the G then carefully brush it over. I used a Sharpe marker like a rolling pin to smooth out some of the bubbles. This definitely did not turn out perfectly, but I like it. I have yet to decide where its final resting place will be.

I love that! I saw the other one at 320 Sycamore, and you reminded me that I wanted to look for those monogrammed napkins. It came out great ~ I love the piece you did it on, too.
