Reader Megan at Brassy Apple has made it her personal mission to come up with as many cute crafts as she can using a dollar store find: the humble burner cover. Most recently, she has gifted the world with a chalkboard shaped like a cute owl. For her other projects, she’s done a decoupaged magnetic memo board, monogram wreath, sports ball wall decor, and road trip game boards. Check out her blog for [instructions and a template for making the owl chalkboard]
