Our booth display discussion last week culminated on July 4th as our family wandered around target looking for paper doilies or something else that would fit the idea I had in my head for displaying our designs. It was 8:30 at night, pouring rain, and we were biding time to see if the firework display would actually happen because the kids reeeeeeeeeeeeeeally wanted to see fireworks. Target is not the place to buy paper doilies if you were curious, but I found these melamine plates that with a bit of altering fit my vision perfectly. We flipped them around, drilled two holes at the top, and spray-painted them with white spray paint (the kind formulated for plastic.)
When they were dry I mounted my round prints in the center circle and pinned the plate up, and lastly I draped a necklace featuring the same design from the pins. I was really happy with the results. Here is how it looked at The Big Crafty this past weekend:
The Big Crafty was super fun as always. Thank you to everyone who came out to support us!
p.s~ The Asheville fireworks show went on despite the downpour. Watching fireworks in the rain was certainly a first. The kids didn't mind a bit. To quote Lili "Best Day EVER!!!"
