{featured guest tutorial..inspiring creations}

I am so thrilled to be guest posting today!

My name is Lindsey and I blog over at



I have been crafting since I can remember and I love inspiring others to be creative. I use my blog to share crafts, tutorials, recipes, and I also host a weekly linky party.

Right now I am loving the vintage look. I am slightly obsessed with lace at the moment and I can't stop crafting with it! So today I thought I would show you a project that is both vintage looking and uses lace!

--



I started out with this frame. If you don't have a frame lying around your house I am always finding a ton at my local thrift store for super cheap.



Alright, let's get started!

Step 1: Paint your frame. I started with a coat of antique white so that when I distressed the edges white would show through.



After your white paint dries, paint your frame black. When the black dries, use some sandpaper to rough up the edges so it looks like this:




Step 2: Cut out a piece of cardboard or matte board to fit the size of your frame.



Step 3: Paint it black




Step 4: Cut out a piece of paper to the size you like and mod podge it onto your cardboard.



Step 5: Cut out a key. (I used my cricut machine) Then mod podge it onto your paper.



Step 6: Attach lace. Apply a thin layer of mod podge to the edge of your board.




Then carefully place lace onto mod podge. You will want to trim the edges to the size you want.




Step 7: Hot glue black ribbon around the edge of your lace.



That's it! You're done! I love how it turned out, and I love the vintage feel of it.






Thanks Kierste, for having me!

I hope you all will have a chance to stop by my blog and find some inspiration.

Happy Crafting!

.....

Thank you so much, Lindsey! I love the look of the lace on this project--such a fun idea!

Absolutely beautiful. I think this is by far the prettiest key display that I have seen. I collect old keys and would love to hang something like this in my home. Thank you for sharing.

How did you do the corners of the lace? Did you cut each piece at an angle so they would go together or did you overlap?
