Project 101: Distressed Fleur de Lis

Jessica, the wonderwoman in the office, is brilliant at distressing anything! She is the master at making our products look 'old'. She took a few pictures of how she paints and distresses our fleur de lis...which by the way, she uses the same technique on anything else we cut...words, crosses, letters, initials, or practically anything made of wood. She probably could make a tree look really cool.

STEP 1: Materials needed

1. 24" unfinished fleur de lis
2. 3M spray adhesive
3. spray paint - We used Rustoleum Painter's Touch in Eden
4. craft paint - We used Apple Barrel acrylic paint in Chocolate Bar
5. embellishments - Iron fleur de lis and paper scripture dipped in coffee with edges burned with torch
6. glue - We used E-6000 from Wal-Mart, Hobby Lobby, Home Depot

STEP 2: Spray paint entire fleur de lis with green paint (front and edges).

STEP 3: Apply a dry brush stroke with craft paint.

STEP 4: Spray back of scripture paper with adhesive spray and apply to fleur de lis.

STEP 5: Attach iron fleur de lis with wood glue and a small screw.

Let dry and you're done!! How does yours look??
