Get Your Craft On | Chevron Charger

Feeling crafty? I sure was this morning! It’s grey, gloomy & rainy. In my opinion, not a better day to get your craft on. Chevron is still all the rage, lately. I thought it would be fun to take an every day lacquer charger & add some chevron love!

Grab a charger, painters tape & spray paint (whatever color you can dream up)! Gold is BACK. I love the look of metallic gold & aqua. But, how fun would gold & blush be? Or neon pink & white.

I found using the painters tape above my original pattern really helped making the pattern even & easy to do.

Once you are happy with your pattern. Trust me, mine is far from perfect! Grab your charger & head outside for a little painting. I threw some plastic down to protect the ground.

Coat the spray paint as much or as little as you want. I really wanted the contrast, so I completely sprayed the charger with the aqua paint. Now, here comes the HARDEST part. For me, at least. Wait until the charger has completely dried before removing the paint. I get so eager to see how it came out that I usually cheat & take it off too soon! Don’t be tempted…it’s NOT worth it! Promise.

Fun, right? How amazing would a long table be, with chevron chargers for each guest? What’s that? Not planning an event or wedding any time soon? No biggie. How about you craft one up & use it for a catch all tray?

So what are you waiting for? Go, go now & get your craft on!

* keep in mind. spray paint isn’t the friendliest with food. if you are hoping to serve food directly on your charger, make sure you get a food safe paint. Michael’s is a good spot to look!
