Today's absolutely beautiful Christmas project is this fabulous decoupaged festive sign from DT member & super crafter Julie Lavalette.
Julie created this gorgeous decoupage sign for us and before she had even finished her daughter had snapped it up for her home! We can see why!
"I bought my sign paper mâché sign in Hobbycraft and I gave it a layer of Gesso paint applying it with a baby wipe. It's far quicker this way and you don't end up with brush marks. Once dry I used Mod Podge Matt and glued my Decoupage paper on top. On this design I opted to layer on the sheet and folded and glued in place the papers as I wanted to see the full effect of the paper rather than it being torn in this design. " - Julie
"Once all in place I added another layer of Mod Podge but this time the Sparkle one, which certainly does make it glisten when the light catches it." - Julie
"I added Icicles cut from Craft Consortiums amazing Non shed glitter card, lots of die cut Snowflakes filled with sparkly Gems"- Julie
"Rudolph is an MDF shape I covered in different Embossing powders adding his red sparkly nose and attaching Santa's Magic key to his neck with silver ribbon." - Julie
Here is a selection of other pictures for you to enjoy.
"I do hope you feel inspired to make some Festive Home Decor. " - Julie
