Altering rat traps is so fun! It is a great piece to alter, for a very small investment.
I started by removing the metal from the wood base of the Rat Trap. I sanded the wood and adhered text paper to it. I used Ranger Industries "Perfect Pearls" to make a faux patina on the metal. I attached the Rat Trap to a mini hanger from Melissa Frances. The resin flower on the lower left and the clothes pins on the top right are from her too.
Some other Ranger products I used are: Pins, A Bottle, Pen Nib, Baubles, Sprocket and Stamps. The flowers and Inks are from Prima.
Canvas Corp. twine made the bow, and I used some of their burlap on my trap, too. A miscellaneous key and gauze finished it up!
I would love to see your altered rat traps! Just leave a link and I'll be sure to check it out! If you've never altered a rat trap, give it a try! They are a fun and inexpensive way to use up your scraps!
