Introduction: Violin Decoration
I found this wooden violin at a thrift store for $1.00 so I purchased it because I thought it was cute. Once I got it home I felt it needed more color. Turquoise is my favorite color so I decided to use that color on it and see how it would turn out. It looked bare so I started adding some scrapbooking flowers and butterflies I had.

Step 1: Supplies:

- First I sanded the violin with sandpaper
- Next I spray paint it, I gave it 2 coats
- Once the second coat was dry I used the glue gun to apply the flowers
