I was just wondering if you took some cookies sheets, primed them then paint whatever you want on them, could they not be used for the oblong burner covers?? Any ideas?

Deborah...do you use just a bit of sanding or do you prim paint them then use your spray paint color? Do you seal yours?

We jsut sand a bit to rough them up. Then spray-1-2 coats on them. More if needed to cover up the design already on them. I paint the faces on them then clear spray then do the details, outlining with a sharpie. No matter what type of spray we used it would make the sharpie run if we sprayed after the sharpie. These have not had any problems so far with durability---but need to be just wiped off not a dishwasher!

These would be good to paint on and be a bit different, too. I could not use these because my burners are not lined up like that. They are staggered on the stove top. DianeNanato4
This is the site where I saw them.

I know a lot of folks sell them on ebay hand painted...I bought 2 sets in a prim/folk art style...they are beautiful.
That is the only crafting of burner covers I know about can't wait to see if someone will tell us what they are up to.

ssshhhhh it is a secret! LOL not really! I just took dollar store metal burner covers and sanded them and base coated them with spray paint and then painted snowman or gingerbread faces on them! I sell them for $8.95 a set

Smartie pants are pretty easy. You cut a Pants shape from fabric (I always make sure the "ankle" parts are on a fold of fabric.). I just guess at the size & leg holes.
You can hot glue the 'seams', but I prefer to sew them. I never have luck w/ the glue holding.
some people put a little hang tag from ribbon in the corner. I do that at Christmas time. In addition, I also try to decorate the pants, with a little ribbon belt, or a flower, a ribbon bow...at halloween, I glued the bat or the spider from the cheapie plastic rings.
stick a roll of SMARTIES candy in each leg.
the real catch, though, is the poem you write to go with them. the idea is that the receiver is a "smartie pants".
I think if you go to shirley's site http://www.craftsayings.com
you'll find poems there.

What are the smartie pants you are speaking of? I have missed something somewhere. I would love to see this or hear more about it. Please email me with the details. This sounds too cute and might be a good idea for Valentines. Do you remember which poem it was under at craftsayings.com?
