Bowling Pin + Vinyl = Door Stop

This is another of those totally random things that I saw at an antique/junk store and bought.  I had NO idea what I would do with it, I just wanted it.  Totally an impulse buy....and I don't do that very often, so I guess when I do, at least its good that its less than $10.

I put it in my office closet where it sat and sat and sat and since I knew the hubs would wonder why in the world I bought a bowling pin for.  I think he's kinda stopped asking lately....he just shakes his head now.  Luckily, most of the "junk" I bring home ends up transformed and I redeem myself.

I took some scrap vinyl (from a project I thought I had already posted, but apparently haven't yet...) and hand cut the "5" after tracing a stencil.  I have a lovely silhouette, but it seems like more trouble to drag it out, format a number, set it up and cut than it did to just trace a cut.  

Anyway...trace, cut, peel, stick.  New doorstop.

  1. Very cool! I teach and I think this would be a really fun and simple way to bring personality to my classroom door. Thanks for sharing!
