Not Just for Nemo

Ready for the easiest tutorial in the world?

Step 1: Go to Walmart or Petco or wherever and buy yourself a piece of fake coral for fish tanks. I got mine at Walmart for $3.98. As you can see, mine is pink.🙂

Step 2: Locate your white spray paint from the 10,000 cans you have. I used Krylon Fusion for Plastics.

Step 3: Remove coral from package.

Then spray it some more.

Step 5: Let it dry.

What do you think? Easy right? I’m contemplating going back and getting more. They had a bunch of different sizes and types to choose from. Can’t you see a grouping of these sitting on a bookshelf? Ooh, perhaps with the beach inspired frame near by? Would be awesome!

I’ve seen fake coral like this for $20+ a piece at Pottery Barn! I’ll take my $4 version any day!😉

Hope you liked my little project!

Lots of love,
Erin

P.S. Sorry about the iPhone pictures. I’m currently in bed nursing a sore mouth after a visit from the dentist this afternoon.🙂
