Basswood craft

Sparrow Soirees Summer Event

My dragon cohort, Asia from Sparrow Soirees, recently threw a glitter and crafts party. It was a gorgeous Sunday afternoon, and despite me coming smelling like a fire pit (prior to her party I came from a BBQ cooking class) I had the most wonderful time.
Backyard Crafting

One of the crafts was painting (and or glittering) a basswood. Using a paint brush I applied Mod Podge on the base with a paintbrush, and then sprinkled gold glitter on top. I couldn’t fair well go to a “glitter” party and not create something using…um…glitter. I couldn’t stop there with the gold, I used black glitter for a stitched border around the edge. I do have to say I think it is adorable. :)
Basswood Materials

Basswood craft
When I got home I was ready to hang it up in my craft room so I got out a piece of dark brown leather trim and nailed the ends to the back of the basswood to hang on the wall.

Thanks so much to Asia for hosting such a fun event!
