Silver and sparkly magazine

Since I have been in recovery and 
since I have TONS of magazines 
(thanks to expiring miles bonus points)
I have decided to make the most of this 
sit down-lay down, time.

Here is a slightly different version of this recent book project.

You'll need:
magazine(s)
spray paint
and time

Fold your magazine's pages like 

so.

Take it outside and spray paint.
I started with a layer of white, and finished it with a generous layer of 
metallic silver spray paint. 

(I already owned both cans)
Now on to making a few more,
with magazines of different height. 
The trees will all be on the dresser in the girls princess room...
which I will reveal very soon.
Pinky promise.
Cost of this project
$0
(my favorite)

Stay Frugal,

Good Evening Daniela, I do hope you are feeling a little better, I have been following you, but have been really busy as my daughter is visiting from India, so I have not been able to leave as many comments as I normally would. Take care of yourself and get well soon. Best Wishes Daphne

I love this idea. I've seen them done without the spray paint, but really love the finished look of the paint! So clever and a great way to recycle old magazines. So sorry to hear that you're still not feeling well.

Nothing goes to waste in your house, does it? I love these and can't wait for you to honor that pinky promise and show them to us in your little girl's room.

Ok, this is looking like a very cool craft. I can't wait to see what you do with them. #exciting.

And I hope you're healing quite nicely and will be good as new for the holidays!
