I love to alter all kinds of items, one of my favorite is paper mache. It is easy to work with - you can paint, ink, leave plain, do about anything to it. I also love to snag them after the holiday season when things are marked super low. This sign probably cost me $1-$2 tops. I used the Carnival Ride Collection from Scrap Within Reach. I used paint, sand paper, crumpled the papers and also used my favorite ink Clearsnap Chesnut Roan to give this project a distressed look. I added some twine and buttons and some sparkly snow glitter (also an after holiday purchase). I am in the process of getting out all of my Christmas decorations and will be setting this project out as well.
