Pen Cup

This week's challenge on Crop Chocolate was to create, "A home decor project or altered item using neutrals and one main focal color."  This is one thing that I love about this website - the challenges.  This particular challenge had me a bit stumped.  I've tried altered art.....but haven't liked anything I've done very much.  I've never done home decor, but I sure have a lot of projects on pinterest that I've wanted to try.  It's a challenge though.  It's like a "double-dog-dare."  Here's what I did.

I went to Target dollar bucket and purchased this:

I covered it with a "neutral" light pink color from the Kioshi paper I bought on CC. I cut some flowers out of a Dots and Stripes paper, added some ribbon and came up with:

Wellllll, do I love it?  I don't know yet.  It'll be useful, and I do have lots of ideas for other simple home decor items. Watch the blog; something will be done soon.  (maybe)

Leave me a comment with some ideas of simple home decor you have done.  I'd love the inspiration...

Craftily yours,
