Napkin Rings {Makeover}

Napkin Rings {Makeover}

RevampedSooo last week’s post talked about how I went a little spray paint crazy. It all started by wanting to try to paint some string lights gold (for the wedding) call me crazy but I thought it would look awesome (it does). But to see those, you’ll have to tune in next week! 🙂 After spraying the lights and seeing how beautiful the gold paint went on and how glam it looked, I started rummaging around the house for other items to paint. Enter these napkin rings. Now you’re probably thinking “why do you have napkin rings” (I don’t know either) “do you really use napkin rings?” (like one time ever) – BUT they were my grandmas and while going through her stuff after she passed away, I came across these and thought they were rustic and cute and when if I have a dinner party then I’d use them. Then I thought I’d glam them up a little bit, also  my heart wouldn’t break if the grand idea didn’t work out anyway. So I taped them up: Both the inside and outside. I couldn’t decide on a pattern so I thought it would look cute if I did a variety. It was a little difficult to adequately tape the inside because it’s a circle and it kept trying to lift in certain places but it ended up working pretty good. I used a Qtip in rubbing alcohol to clean up some minor “leaks” in the tape and surprisingly that worked really good. DSC_9696 copyThere are 7 rings total (used to be 8 but I broke one by shutting a drawer a little aggressively one day) so I ended up doing 3 that I taped two spots like this: DSC_9704 copyAnd then two of 4 spots like this: DSC_9706 copyAnd two of 5 spots: DSC_9708 copyHonestly the one top one is my favorite (the two spots ones) and I half wish I would have done them all like that, but I also like the ones split in 4, the 5 is not my favorite. BUT I do like variety so I’m fine with it. DSC_9686 copyFor other tips and tricks on spray painting see HERE. So what do you think?!? Cute? Lame? I’d love your thoughts! I’ll just be sitting over here waiting to use these babies for all my non existent dinner parties 🙂 HAPPY FRIDAY! Thanks for reading and checking out the blog. Have a great weekend!

EAT LAUGH CRAFT’S FIRST GIVEAWAY!!!

Yahoo!! Ok as stated above Red Gold contacted me about my blog and offered to send me a goodie box filled with product samples and some other various red gold logo items. They sent me a really really nice wooden spoon that says “Red Gold Official Blogger” ooooh fancy! It is heavy and a really good quality! Then they sent me a cute Red Tomato Apron, 6 cans of different Red Gold products (two of which I used for this recipe) and a little collection of recipes. How nice right?!?!? Well I would like to hook one lucky reader up with a similar package of goodies! Don’t you want all of what is below?!? Yes, yes you do.

So you have one week from today to enter yourself into the drawing and I will announce the winner after the giveaway closes. The giveaway will run from Friday 9/26 until Friday 10/3. I will randomly pick a winner shortly after that! Due to some hosting issues with my blog, I am having issues running this giveaway exactly as I would like.

So there are two ways to enter into the giveaway:

1) Go to our Eat Laugh Craft Facebook page and go to the “GIVEAWAY’ tab, just below the cover photo. Then you will have a box appear with 4 ways in which you can enter to win! Do at least 1 or all 4!

2) Because I personally hate contests that only allow Facebook entries I will also enter anyone into the drawing who comments on their favorite post here on the blog (this post or any other). Take a look around a find a post you maybe haven’t seen before. Make sure to use the hashtag #eatlaughcraft just so I can know you saw this giveaway and want to be entered.

That’s it! So easy! Now get out there and enter yourselves and win this goodie box!!!!

OH!!! one more thing. Red Gold Tomatoes is currently hosting their OWN giveaway called “2 A Day Crockpot Giveaway”, where you guessed it, they are giving away two crockpots a day from now until October 8th! All you need to do it go to their Facebook page and enter yourself to win. GOOD LUCK!
