Here's something fun to do with old rusty things - make handmade paper - and it's free! ♥ Raided my neighbor Laurie's backyard because it's loaded with charm and fun. Here is a pic of rusty things I borrowed:
Spray the rusty object with a simple solution of 50% water and 50% vinegar. Wrap in strong paper towels (I use Viva) that have also been sprayed with the same solution. Press the damp paper towels so that they make contact with the surface. Spray again. Wrap in some cotton fabric and spray again. Let sit overnight. Wala - here's what I got. Aren't the beautiful?
