This is a sponsored post. I was compensated to create this tutorial, but the opinions are 100% my own.
Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores asked me to be part of The Big Bling going on the entire month of June. Each week of the month has a different theme to inspire you. This week’s theme is neons and brights, and my blinged out fridge has a bit of both!
My fridge has been looking like a hot mess lately. Random papers and children's art work was displayed everywhere. Things were constantly getting knocked down when little feet ran by the fridge. This mama was getting pretty frustrated with the whole thing.
When Joann Fabric and Craft Store asked me to be a part of their Big Bling Campaign, I knew I needed to make my fridge the item I was blinging out. I went to Joann, with my coupons in hand, and was immediately inspired. They had a whole aisle of Lockerlookz goodies, wooden frames, and a lot of chalkboard stuff (remember I love all things chalkboard). I was in crafting heaven.
These are the items I snagged to bling out my fridge:
1 bottle neon green acrylic paint
1 bottle neon pink acrylic paint
paint brushes *
chalkboard vinyl *
1 repurposed file folder *
1 sheet of rhinestone stick-on gems *
1 sheet of stick-on pearls *
*already had in my craft stash
I started by giving my wooden frames two coats of neon paint. I kept my third wooden frame for another project I'll share next week :)
I love the scalloped edges on these frames! Too fun! They are each under $3 this week too! Wooden frames are my favorite, since you can customize them to your own decor :)
Once my frames were dried, I added my bling. I am in love with the rhinestone and pearl mixture on the pink frame. Too fun! I did two frames, one for each munchkin.
I kept the cardboard inserts in when I was painting. This helps me not get paint everywhere. Once the paint was dry, I removed the cardboard insert and replaced it with cheetah scrapbook paper I had in my stash. Once the littles create some little works of art, they will be able to fill their frames with their own masterpieces.
Next, I hot glued heavy duty magnets to the back of my frames.
Another thing I wanted on my fridge was a folder to keep all those papers hubby and I get from church and such. I didn't want a boring old file folder, so I decided to bling it out with some chalkboard vinyl.
I used my file folder as a pattern and traced around it. I adhered the vinyl to the folder and glued it closed on the ends. I also added magnets to the back of my folder as well.
This was a simple craft, that only took an afternoon to do. Here is the before of my hot mess of a fridge.
Now the after.....
I added a vinyl square for my menu plan, some buttons glued onto magnets, and all my other lockerlookz goodies.
The boy told me this was one of my best crafts. That little man makes me laugh!
These work great for your teens locker as well! All LockerLookz coordinate with each other and will take either your fridge or teens locker from drab to fab! They are also easy on the wallet too!
