Restyled Rocking Horse

December 26, 2017

Whew! Christmas is over. It’s been several months of constantly crafting for shows, gifts and articles. Not to mention planning for the next show, attending shows, Christmas shopping, wrapping gifts, baking, preparing for Christmas day and dinner. It seems kinda strange to wake up the day after and not have a huge list to tackle before bedtime.

Now that I have a few minutes to breathe I have been thinking of all those pictures of projects I created. Those pictures are finally ready to bust out of my camera. While many of the projects are seasonal, I am still going to try and get them posted over the next few months. I figure, if nothing else, they can serve as inspiration for next year.

The first project to bust out is my restyled rocking horse. Children’s items have always been good seller’s so when I found this rocking horse it was really a no-brainer to snap it up.

The all over base coat was done in a light green.

I then made a polka dot stencil using a card stock scrap and a dime as my dot pattern. I cut the dot out with a craft knife. The entire painted horse got a white pearl top coat.

Lastly, white tulle ribbon was used to make a large bow for the neck.
