Handmade Christmas decoration from Sarah Douglas

November 18, 2016

Today we have an adorable decoupaged christmas decoration for you made by the talented Sarah Douglas.

 

 

Step 1: Sarah started off by painting a plain wooden heart shape white so that the "decoupage paper has a good bright background. Leaving the wood bare will dull the pattern".

 

Step 2: "Smoodge PVA glue all over the front of the heart, using your fingers to cover the whole surface, making especially sure to go right to the edges"

 

Step 3: "Place the glue side on the back of the decoupage paper".

 

Step 4: "Rub your fingers over the front to make sure the paper is smooth and flat and there are no air bubbles"

Step 5: "Cut out using a craft knife. You can also use scissors but a craft knife will get perfectly close to the edge. I realise that this ridiculous Stanley knife is going way beyond a craft tool, but this is what my husband got me for Christmas! It’s called ‘Fat Max’ and it does a darn good job of cutting through paper. Some may think it’s overkill but there we have it".

 

Step 6: "Sand the edges of the heart with a very fine sandpaper. I like this squishy foam sanding block. This ensures the wood and paper are perfectly integrated and makes it look like the decoupage design is printed onto the wood itself. Use a pencil to poke the hole back through".

Step 7: Next I chose a wooden frame from my little Papermania Bare Basics pack of frames and covered it in Snow-tex. I bought the Snow-tex at the start of the year and hadn’t got round to using it til recently – I wasn’t entirely sure how it worked – but now I love it. You basically use a paintbrush or little palette knife to daub it onto your project. It’s a mix of white paint and some sort of grainy material and when it dries it looks like snow!

 

"I threaded my heart with a bit of garden twine for a rustic feel and ta-da! It’s ready to hang."
