    I finished my maracas! I used Mishka's designs as inspiration and really wouldn't have even attempted them if I wasn't on this forum. So they are those tiny ones from OTC, but I love mini-things and think they turned out pretty cute. I did them early so I wasn't up the night before I left painting the little suckers...ahem... cougs... thanks for the advice

    They are going to go on the seats at the ceremony. Enjoy the pics!

      OMG Autumn those are amazing!!! So you bought them from OTC and just painted over them?

      I love mini things as well and was going to buy them from OTC, you did a fantastic job! You should be so proud :)

        Thanks KittenHeart :) I absolutely love your inspiration board! That e-pic is still one of my faves that I have seen.

        I just tried to find the ones I bought on OTC, but they don't have them anymore Essentially I bought the ones in the link below, but they were not painted at all.

              Autumn - I love them! I just finished mine too. We did the same technique with the holes in a piece of wood, it worked great! I freaked out because I thought I needed more and OTC isn't selling them anymore like you said. Congrats I love how you did the initials - I am not that ambitious! Mine are just solid colors- how did you do the tags are they stickers?

                    They look great, Autumn. Good job. I hope you post all of your DYI stuff before you head off to the wedding. BTW, my daughter got married in PV and we all stayed at Dreams. Had a blast.
