Vintage Bingo Cards

Remember when I re-decorated my foyer? Well, if you look in the photos in that post below, I have a wicker charger plate on the top shelf on the right. It looked really plain.

I decided it needed something. So, I made these vintagey "lucky home" bingo cards:

Here are a couple of close ups... these are really super quick and easy to make. I used some Ranger distress ink in walnut applied with a makeup sponge (or you could use Tim Holtz' fancy applicator tool) on the Jenni Bowlin bingo cards along the edges to make it look old, then I just added a few embellishments, and 20 minutes later, you have a fun home decor item to put on your shelf.

This one has a bonafide vintage button and stick pin that I got at the fleatique last summer:
Prima flower, Jenni Bowlin ticket and Creative Charms gradient gems.

On the "home" card, I used a Jenni Bowlin milk bottle cap and vintage button, jazzed up with a Creative Charms gradient gem.

Making Memories bird clip, vintage lace.


Fun, easy crafty decor project. I think it really added to the space and the wicker charger plate really makes the bingo cards pop.

Thanks for stopping by!! Hope you have a crafty day!!

awesome I put-off buying this for months, despite positive reviews. I tried every free weather app going and eventually decided to take the plunge. Glad I did - easily the most customisable weather widget and clock on caftan and the skins are awesome!
