Remote Control Holder

I don't know the technical name for this....there probably isn't one. I'm sure a fine crafter out there has invented a better word than "holder," or "thingamagiggy" (my second choice). Either way, here is what I did...

First, I went to GW and found a cheap-o little knick knack. I was happy to see that it was blue-sticker day ($1.50) and this little gem had a blue sticker.


I took it home and added these fun little decals I got at JoAnn's with a 40% off coupon (so, $1.75), with some Monkey Glue. After that dried, I sprayed it a nice, bright white.


Once that dried, I had lots of fun sanding it down around the edges and on the decals. Added some faux glaze and called it good!
