Happy Tuesday! Welcome to another It’s So Ugly, It’s Cool Challenge! If you missed what second hand find I flipped last month, check it out, here. Remember when I participated in the #SwapitlikeitsHOT challenge hosted by Charlotte from Ciburbanity? Well, I shared how I created candle holders/floral art using a tiered jewelry holder. Today I will be sharing how I created some Animal Hooks using thrifted trays given to me by Ursula from Homemade by Carmona.
When I first received these trays, I wanted to make some cool black and white wall art hooks, but I could not find hooks that I liked to make my vision come alive. So instead, I decided that will create something that can be used in my son’s room/playroom. I have seen animal head projects around the net and thought they were cute, but I wanted to get my whole dollars worth out of them so I used their whole body. Haha!
