Ever had a great idea …. that didn’t quite work out the way you expected? That’s exactly what happened with these Vintage Heart Ornaments!
I found these great heart ornaments in the clearance aisle at Target after Christmas and I had a plan for them before I walked out the door!
Vintage Heart Ornaments
I knew I didn’t want to leave them in their shiny state – just not the look I had in mind this year. My plan was to tone them down by covering them with a coat of Modge Podge and tissue paper … simple right? Not so this time. The paint from the ornaments kept bleeding right through the tissue paper making a complete mess.
So I scrapped that idea and tried a couple of other options – ribbon? – nope – thicker tissue? – didn’t look right. Nothing worked. By this time my frustration was mounting. Ever been there? This was supposed to be such a simple project!
Then I remembered … I had a box of parchment paper from a previous project and wondered if that might do the trick.
Isn’t that the way life is sometimes? We have a plan and often it doesn’t turn out our way, but instead so much better than what we ever dreamed.
