Rat Trap Decor

I know, did I really just use Rat Trap and Decor as a title. Yup. I did.

Remember my sneak peek for my bedroom?  The one with the Rat Trap picture in it? Well I finally hung it up to share...

Here is what it started out as:

And here is what it looks like:

Want to learn how?  Okay, here we go!

We need to remove a could pieces, and I don't know names so... Each picture has what we are removing.  Above remove the long bar from the right side of the picture.

Next remove the piece the cheese would go on.  On the left of above picture.

Remove bar that held down "cheese holder".   Just pop off with pliers.

Now you can decorate as wanted. You can paint these too, but I found it to be a faster, and easier project to cover with fabric ( because it matched, You could also use paper too)

Slide your fabric under all your metal parts.

Pull until you are pretty much flat.  
Snip fabric as needed.

Pull tight, and hot glue down.
Leave as is, or add some more details!



  1. This is a really neat idea! I love the fabric you chose!

  2. Oh, how very cute! This would be fun lined up in a kids room or playroom! I love it.

  3. Mercy!!! You are so very clever!! You are going to get tired of me very quickly!!! My head is about to explode with all of the inspiration you have given to me since finding you just this morning. Blessings to you!! Deanna
