a valentine's gift...

for a special someone

a personal gift is always best
and  it's "E F I"
easy, fast, inexpensive

here's how i did it
you will need:
12" cardboard letter
12" crocheted doily { i bought mine at joann's}
mod podge
2 sponge brushes
white paint { i used leftover house paint}

lay doily on letter in so it's a bit off center and doesn't hang below letter {see picture #2}
cut doily so it can wrap easily around letter {see picture #3}
lift sections of doily and add mod podge {see picture #4}
lay doily back down and smooth {see picture #5}
continue until the doily is completely adhered to letter {see picture #6} 
let dry about an hour
paint a number of coats drying in between


up close and showing off
