Image I used to trace
(Well my printer is broken so I had to free hand it)
This project took less than 2 hrs and was FREE!
Old Burlap rug, paint, pine board,glue
I traced the dino on the back of an old rug with a sharpie,
cut it out and painted it!
My hubby has a stash of wood pieces in the garage.
I found a perfect piece of 24"x36" pine board
(Hope he wasn't saving it for anything..hehehe)
I raided my paint closet and found some white and brown.
I first painted a thin layer of white.....I wanted some of the wood to show through without having to sand.
Then I painted on a brown wash
(water with a few drops of brown paint)
and wiped it off with a dry rag.
I went with the grain of the wood.
I then used the brown to put a few spots on my dino and dry brushed some brown on the edges and a few areas on the board.
Then I just glued my dino to the board with some gorilla glue.
I LOVE the 3-D effect and the frayed torn edges.I'm telling you the pictures just don't do this dino justice!
Check out all the places I party!
