This is a black wrought iron wall decoration, (that I got at Hobby Lobby) I had it in the kitchen at our house in San Antonio. But at this house I didn't have anywhere to put it. Anywhere I tried to put it, it always looked to bare by itself.
I should have taken a before picture of this wall plaque before I painted, added scrapbook paper, and drilled holes (well Tyson drilled holes) for the ribbon. But as most of my projects go, I forgot to take a before picture. I painted it black, found scrapbook paper from Hobby Lobby (I used Modge Podge for the paper), and added ribbon that I already had. I wanted to use colors that weren't to loud. So, black and tan were the colors I chose.
I stenciled on "The Purdy's Est. 2004", waited for it to dry and then I tied knots with the ribbon onto the metal wall hanging. That easy, my wall hanging was done.
This is a closer look at the paper, plaque, and how I tied the two pieces together.
