Hello and happy Monday! Today I'm sharing a project I created with some new fall/Halloween themed Clear Scraps products! I love this time of year and creating my own DIY home decor. Using the Ghost Medium DIY Pallet Shape, I created a fun door knob hanger! And I'm going to share the techniques I used!
I began by painting my pallet with black chalk paint. You can use any paint you choose as the birch wood takes the paint in nicely.
Next, I used the Oct 31st 4x6 Stencil with modeling paste. I held my stencil in place with washi tape for extra security.
Before lifting my stencil and allowing the modeling paste to dry, I sprinkled some fine sparkle glitter to the top of the paste. I set my pallet upright to remove any excess glitter before removing the stencil. I also found that using a spatula to remove any excess modeling paste from in between the slats was helpful.
Here is the end result of the stencil/paste! It definitely looks more "shiny" in person and I love how it turned out!
Last, I used the Pumpkins Chipboard Embellishments as a cute accent to my pallet! I adhered patterned paper to the solid pumpkin trimming any excess with scissors. I then painted the 2nd pumpkin with orange chalk paint and adhered on top of the patterned paper. I thought some Halloween colored bakers twine would be cute tied around the stem!
I punched hole in the top of my pallet with my Crop-o-dile and threaded ribbon through so I could hang my creation! Thanks for stopping by the blog today! Have a great day!
