I started my day with pumpkin pie for breakfast, how about you? Since there’s plenty of leftovers , it’s a no cooking day for me! Yay! I don’t intend on leaving the house today at all – I don’t do Black Friday (which is now more like Black Thursday). So basically I have all day to do what I want. Heaven!!
So I put all my fall decorations away so that I could start adding some Christmas decorations. I did a very quick project and made this French Grain Sack Planter. I think it took me about 20 minutes!
I used the freezer paper method to transfer an image from the Graphics Fairy onto this plain white planter that I got from Ikea this summer. It would have been much easier if I had chosen something with a smoother surface!! I don’t know why I didn’t think of that!
Gotta love the Graphics Fairy! She even reversed the image already so all you have to do is transfer it it to your item. You can find the French Grain Sack Printable Here
The Freezer Paper Transfer Method is #4 on the Graphics Fairy list of transfer method tutorials here.
The only thing I did that wasn’t mentioned in the tutorial was I sprayed it with a coat of sealer because the ink wouldn’t dry (might be what the planter was painted with).
Just like mums say “fall”, poinsettias say “Christmas” to me! I wish I could plant these outside like I do my mums.
