Dollar store inspiration!

Like I said in my last post my Ward had our Super Saturday last weekend. One of our crafts we did were Barn stars mod podged with with scrapbook paper.  I wanted to make one for each season that I could switch out hanging in a frame or on my front door, but unfortunately I could not justify the cost of purchasing 4 of them :-(  Also I just loved the rustic look of them and could not bare to mod podge over them so I decided keep mine rustic and hung them in my old American themed front room.
Then while I was visiting the dollar store a couple of days ago I made a discovery!  I saw these Tin Stars with tacky snowmen and Santa's painted on them.  And then my crafting light bulb went bing! up above my head :-)  I bought a bunch of them for a dollar each and spray painted them with oil rubbed bronze spray paint.   mod podged the scrapbook paper on and antiqued the edges. 

 I have only done the Christmas ones so far, but I plan on making Fall, Spring and Summer too :-)  Next on my agenda for this craft is to find a cute open frame to hang them on.  I think I want to hang it on my door. Oh and Paula, just pretend you did not see this or the apron set ;-)
