Here’s an easy idea to repurpose some wall decor into something you need!! These little wood plaques from Ross were just my style, but not for the wall. I have something else in mind!! I’m going to use them to make easy beaded tabletop risers!!
The three little wood plaques were attached with staples and jute. I found the easiest way to separate them was to simply cut the jute and leave the staples alone. I loved the chippy white finish so I didn’t even have to paint them!
Next up I wanted to add some small beads that I had picked up at Walmart and I’ll use hot glue to attach them. Beaded pieces seem to be so popular right now and the beads add so much character to a piece!! I always find it easier to leave the beads on the string and glue them down. I went ahead and pulled the string out as I glued, but you wouldn’t have to.
Now that the the beads are attached I’ll just dry brush some white Waverly chalk paint on them!! So easy, but a dramatic effect!!
Only one thing left to do and that’s add some feet using some small finials I picked up from Walmart.
I’ll use four and give each one a coat of Waverly wax, then dry brush them with white paint.
The very last thing to do is glue each finial onto the bottom with E-6000 glue.
Such an easy DIY but I just love the look!! I can’t wait to use these with my bottle brush trees at Christmas!!
What do you think?? Will you be making some easy beaded tabletop risers of your own??
