Try It Tuesday~re-purposed cow bell!

Hi guys!!!
I have been visiting my mom last week and came home with some family treasures. 
My mom said the cow bell was mine in high school, so I'm taking her word on that!!!!
For football games:):)
Here it is before~

 and here it is after I added a few special, touches to it~

The new Dinner Bell for the Mercer grands!!  The Bell will be used for Ice Pop's too!!!!
I used acrylic paint and a number stencil on the cow bell.

The seam binding is a vintage find from way back.  I sprayed it down with water and added
 some distress ink to it and let it dry, all scrunched up.  Then tied to the handle on the cow bell., um~ I mean Dinner Bell:):):)
******************************
I will have two posts run today, next one is 
 at 6:00 pm central time.  Fantastic creativity!!!!!!!!

See ya soon~

That's a simple project (easy for me to say, right?) with lots of punch. I like it.
