Love when this magazine appears each month. One of my favorites.
A few pages in and I saw this photo. This craft was even done by a blogger. How nice to have it published in a major publication.
First I needed curtain rings and I remembered that I had a couple of bags put away in a drawer that I never used. I bought these a gazillion years ago from Sears. See the price tag. You can't get a dozen large rings for that price anymore.
My curtain rings were brown so first thing I had to do was pull out the chalk paint.
Now these are the only purchases I made. I had to have a red paint pen. The blogger used a sharpie. Then I had to have the typewriter letter stamps and a black ink pad.
You would think this would be an easy project. NOT! At least not for me. I can paint a huge piece of furniture, but when it comes to small crafts I don't do so good. Look at my sloppy paint job on those poor red stripes. I could not get straight lines around those rings to save my life. Then I tried to stamp the tiny letters on. And I tried and I tried some more. That is when I wanted to pull my hair out!!
So no words on my lifesaver rings. You will just have to imagine the writing on them.
So here is a shot of everything I used for this one copy cat challenge shot.
Here is the magazine shot to copy again.
And here is my shot. Of course the napkins and flowers are different, but it is pretty darn close.
Debbie, thanks for the challenge and I am glad I survived it!
