Bling On My Chandelier

Can I just say that I love having a vinyl cutter?!  I love how quickly I can come up with something so cute.  
I had a 12 X 12 canvas hidden in my craft room.  And when I recently did a major clean out I found it and it didn't take me very long to come up with what I wanted to do with it.  
I started out and painted it a really pretty Spa Blue color.  I know it doesn't look super awesome but I could not for the life of me get my camera to take a good picture of the blue.  Or the camera couldn't get me to take a good picture of it.  However you want to look at it.  I only did one coat so the white could show through a bit and not look so perfectly painted.
 I had found a chandelier doodlebat that I liked and didn't look too crazy to weed so I cut it out of flat black vinyl.  I took the sandpaper to it to give it a antiqued look a little bit.
After I put the chandelier on the dry canvas I added some bling!  I had picked up some multi-sized crystals in some dollar spot somewhere (I think it was JoAnn's).  I put the crystals on each black circle in the various sizes.  They matched up perfectly which made me happy.
 I added it to my mantle because it was in some serious need of color.  Ignore that the jar of Cadbury eggs is only half full.  I keep snatching them every once in awhile and I can't find any more ANYWHERE to fill it back up!  I'd show you the rest of my mantle except it needs some serious work. This is a good start though!  And just so you know I took this picture at 6pm. I love daylight savings time! And I got a sunburn at the park yesterday.  Yay for spring!


  1. My sister-in-law and I are always going back and forth on whether or not to get a plotter. I think we may just have to now! Adorable!
