The first thing I did was paint my u-s-a letters with my mountain blue color.
Once those had dried, I hot glued them onto my piece of wood along with my star. If you plan to use this piece outside you will want to also use gorilla glue or E6000 to adhere your pieces to the wood to withstand the weather elements.
Next, I used my staple gun to attach my jute twine, wrapping it around several times and securing the end with another staple.
Looking cute already, right? I just felt like the top was missing something, so I decided to add a raffia bow. I was hoping I had red raffia but unfortunately did not so just used the natural raffia I had on hand. I then added a cute little red button to the center to complete my project.
I love how this turned out. This was one of those projects that I had no clue what I was going to do when I sat down and then within a matter of minutes I had created this awesome piece! I hope this inspires you to let your mind run wild and get those creative juices flowing!
This project is seriously so easy I can’t believe I am just now doing it! There are only three steps to this cute little project and anyone can do this.
The first step is to paint your round board and your wooden ball knobs with any paint you prefer. I used a white acrylic paint from Hobby Lobby but seriously any paint will work for this.
Next once everything was dry I took a sanding block and distressed my piece of wood. The amount of distressing will depend on your taste. I like to make mine noticeably distressed as I prefer the more aged farmhouse look.
The last step is to simply glue on your feet(knobs) to the bottom of your riser. I used 4 knobs for mine and it works perfectly. You could also use E6000 to adhere your feet to your riser but I didn’t have any on hand so just used hot glue instead and that worked just fine.
I am so excited to decorate my new riser for the different holidays! What do you all think? Super cute, affordable, and soo easy to do! Just the way I like it!
