Welcome back

Nathan, Leslie, and maybe Caroline (brother, his girlfriend, and sister) are coming in for a visit the weekend.  We are going to watch Ole Miss v Tennessee softball.  Hopefully we get to walk the square, I am in it for the yogurt.  Nathan's birthday is Monday so his present is wrapped and ready to go.  I wanted to do something for Leslie because she hasn't been to our house since October and it was just a bachelor pad then.  I started with this.
I had 2 wooden bangle bracelets that I wanted to decorated for her.  I got my brushes, paint, ribbon, lace, Mod Podge, cups, and plate.  First I coated the smaller bangle with a water and brown paint mixture.  I wanted it to have a more antique look.  The larger bangle was covered with an almost navy color paint. 

I took an orange ribbon and Mod Podged it to the larger bangle.  She is an Auburn fan.  The smaller bangle got a lace ribbon.  It was easier if you Mod Podged a section at a time and let it dry.  You didn't have to worry about the ribbon moving. 

I have also covered these bracelets with tissue paper and got a neat effect.  I am going to work on a little something for Caroline next.  We will see what I come up with.
