It's Dana here and I'm happy to be back on the Clear Scraps blog and share a cute Winter home decor project with you. For today's project I'll be using Clear Scraps Wood rectangle Click Here
These wood rectangles are perfect for creating Home Decor projects. They come in so many different sizes and styles to match any decor theme you like.
To start my project, I took some white acrylic paint and a paintbrush and applied a 1 inch border all aling the edge. Let dry.
After your paint dries, I applied some tacky glue along the edge of my wood rectangle shape. Then I sprinkled some pink confetti glitter over the edges, shake off any excess confetti glitter and let dry.
Next remove your shaker from your package. The papers I'll be using to decorate my shaker and home decor piece, are from Simple Stories "Feelin Frosty" collection. I traced my bottom shaker piece onto a polka dot patterned paper from the 6x8 paper pad. Then adhered my paper to my bottom shaker piece using Beacon 3 in 1 glue. I fuzzy cut out the cute bear image from the smaller journaling card. Then I glued this in the center of my shaker. Take your top shaker piece and apply some light blue patina paint to the surface. After the paint dries, I lightly applied some Luna paste over the top to give it a shimmery look.
Now glue the next two shaker chipboard pieces onto your bottom shaker piece, using Beacon 3 in 1 glue. Fill your shaker with Clear Scraps winter flake mix. Peel off the protective film from both sides of your acrylic shaker piece, then glue in place. Glue the final shaker piece on top of your previous layer. Now add some enamel dots around the spheres of your snowflake shaker. Set aside to throughly dry before shaking!
Now we can start decorating our wooden rectangle piece. I took one of the strip patterned papers and glued in the center of my rectangle piece. Next I cut out one of the 4x6 journaling cards and applied on top of your striped paper, using foam dots. Now I decided on what embellishments to use and where I wanted to place them. I don't glue anything down, until I'm happy with my design and placement. I like to use a variety of stickers and empherma.
I applied my shaker to the upper left corner of my wood piece using Beacon 3 in 1 glue. Using pop dots, I adhered my truck on the bottom edge of my rectangle piece. Added my snowman on the left side, using pop dots. I took a small silver enamel dot and applied it to the pom pom on my snowman's hat! I adhered a few foam sticker snowflakes and heart to my design. The larger snowflake empherma piece was applied at the right upper corner with foam dots. I glued a "Winter" words sentiment above my journaling card and a puffy sticker "oh so cold" towards the bottom.
To finish my home decor piece I took some Stickles Diamond glitter and applied to the roof of the house and snow on the tree. I applied one foam sticker on top of the matching cluster of trees on my journaling card. Then I used my hot glue gun and some pink tulle and adhered a hanger to the back of my wood piece!
