Decoupage Rose Fabric Pen
I like to decoupage- so I try it on everything from wood to plastic to glass to just abut anything. I made a pen for my sister it was covered with fabric - it was white with flowers outlined in black so I gave it color by using glitter mist - not sure the name but it looked like a pretty rose color, then I used Martha's new glitter paint - Well below you will see the steps and a brief description of how I did my sister's pen which is just like the one in this post.
|Now I could type the material names but figure the photo would be better, not shown on this photo is the heat gun I used to dry the fabric faster after the paint and modge podge was used|
|So here is the piece of fabric all ready - used the glitter mist, the glitter paint and the heat gun to dry it up fast.|
|Here you can see I covered the pen with lots of fabric mod podge I did add some to the fabric too, and after I rolled the pen on the fabric - I cut the left over fabric off -|
|here is the pen all covered with the fabric, now you can see I did not cover all the way to the tip - because I want to be able to use the cap - or the person getting the pen, so she can cover it when not in use.|
|I took Aleen's super gel brush-on adhesive and brushed it around the exposed top of the pen, then took the red wire and wrapped it around twice, now all I have to do is string several of the pink and red beads you see in the photo|
