Upcycled Treasure

November 18, 2016


As the old saying goes 'One man's trash is another man's treasure', and in this case that couldn't be more true!


Today we're bringing you DT Julie Lavalette's latest upcycled project made with the Craft Consortium Wild Meadow decoupage paper, and the Always & Forever Satin Ribbon and Diamante Star Buckle Charm.



Created using a cat figurine found in a junk shop, Julie cleverly reinvented this adorable little decoration. We think it'd be perfect in a little girls bedroom!


"I had a trip to our local Parkinson's Charity shop which is like an Aladdins Cave filled with lots of treasures and furniture to upcycle. I love cats and when I saw this little white one, I knew right away some of Craft Consortiums Decoupage paper would give it a new lease of life."




"Normally I would have given the item I am about to decoupage a coat of Gesso, but with it being White already I just gave it a wash to get rid of any dust and grease on it."


I glued my torn pieces of paper in place using Mod Podge matte




"Once dry I added a couple of coats of DecoArt Gloss Varnish  and finished off with a new collar for my cat using embellishments from the Always and Forever Collection."
