I hope you all had a great weekend.
I'm in the Red and White Summer Stripe mood.
So, I've had this iron hook
that holds a candle or jar
and I've been waiting for just the right place
to hang it.
I'm on a roll decorating with water skis.
I have painted some for Photo Holders.
Today, I'm using one
to mount my iron hook.
I used Holiday Red and Engine Red
for the stripes.
Then, a fine charcoal line on the edges of the stripes.
Sand all outside edges
and rub black paint along the sanded edge.
Mount the iron hook.
Attach a D Ring on the back.
It's really a quick and fun project.
I know you can buy iron hooks like these
in retail shops or you could use
a metal plant hanger.
You could also hang a small lantern on the hook.
Or , what about a star ornament.
And, you know what -
you don't even need to use a water ski.
You could get a similar look
with just a long piece of fence board
painted with stripes.
Are you thinking
about where you can
put a graphic stripe pattern
in your home?
My favorite pattern!
Have a great week,
