Then you slap on some paint. Doesn't have to be pretty.
Cut some pretty papers or fabric into a scallop design and then ModPodge the heck out of it. I hated this part. Decoupage glue and I don't mix. It's like impossible to get rid of all the wrinkles and bubbles, but you know what? It doesn't matter. You can't mess up this project!
When it's all dry, write out some of your favorite sayings with a permanent marker and voila! From trash to treasure literally. I can see it in my studio now;) Can you believe it used to say Dallas Cowboys??
Have a blessed day.
