I fell in love with a fish. He was glorious hanging on the antique shop wall slick and shining blue. Aside from the dangling tag that read $3000.00, I had no plans to carry him around for the next two days of my holiday.
But darlings, I NEEDED a marlin for my dining room desperately. So, I made one instead.
I know, I know. You want a giant fish too. Luckily for you, I've broken the process down into five easy steps! You too can be the proud owner of a fake Marlin just in time for the holidays!
Step One: Find a glamorous stuffed Marlin at antique shop and decide you aren't going to buy it a train ticket home.
Step Two: Visit your sister, who recently returned from an Ikea trip and steal away into the night with her cardboard.
Step Three: Hastily paint giant fish onto found cardboard in an effort to finish it before your boyfriend comes home and tells you this might be a terrible idea.
Step Four: Add glitter until you're giggling to yourself.
Step Five: Get that beast on the wall and admire your handiwork.
Live the Dream and Stay Crafty, Muffins.
