Upcycled Thrift Store Purse

Don't faint now.  It is me again.  I know this is not going to be a regular appearance... so I am enjoying it while I can :)

I have had this purse and moss kicking around for a few years knowing full well what I wanted to do with it - was just waiting for a rainy day.  Well that day came :)


I basically just covered the little purse with some Mod Podge and adhered the moss.  Talk about easy!
Don't you love the gorgeous background of a desk that I am working on?!  That has been my crafting table for over 10 years so it has been well used... just keeping it real ;)


I then held it in place with some clothes pegs.

The next day (today actually - real time blogging happening!) I just added bits and pieces where there needed to be fills.

Of course, nothing for me is complete without a bit of paper crafting to top it off, so I whipped up a little tag using my Papertrey Ink stamp and Ink from Simon Says.



Now it graces my new potting bench just outside my door so that I get to look at it often.  You can see it here.

Sweet little project. Glad you finally got around to finishing it. It looks so nice on your bench there. Now you can enjoy it every day! What a great feeling that must be. :)
