Semi-DIY Point out Nail and String Art
After seeing state nail and string art popping up on Pinterest last fall. I was sure it would be one of my Christmas DIY presents. Unfortunately. Princemas preparations took up my November and December crafting mojo, buy canada goose jackets london online store .. -/
But when this wedding save-the-date came in the mail. I was inspired to make a Texas version for the bride and groom where to buy canada goose lodge hoody blue sales .
First. sand your piece of wood to ensure all surfaces are smooth. Paint the wood canada goose lodge hoody blue sales . use a primer if you’re painting with acrylics canada goose lodge hoody blue sales buy .
