Large Chipboard Embellishments Home Decor
March 31, 2020
Hello! It's Jennifer here to share a home decor project I created with a few new Clear Scraps products! I began with the Rectangle 12x10 Medium DIY Pallet Shape and covered each slat with patterned paper. Using a solvent based adhesive, such as Beacon, works best with the birch wood.
Next, I painted the Tractor Large Chipboard Embellishment using off white for the body and black for the tires and steering wheel.
Once the paint was dry, I applied a thin coat of crackle paint over the body of the Tractor. You won't notice the crackle effect until the next step. And this medium does take a bit longer to dry.
My plan was to paint the tractor pink but my paint did not quite match my paper. So after applying the pink I did add a coat of the off white to lighten the color. You can see here the close up of the crackle.
Using my Beacon, I covered the Home Large Chipboard Embellishment with patterned paper. I then removed excess paper with an x-acto knife and sanding tool. I adhered the letters with the same adhesive.
I added paper flowers from my stash to the back tire of the tractor as well as bow sticker from the collection I used. You can also see enamel dots and chipboard plus signs for accent.
I also added a couple paper flowers to the "O" in my Home Chipboard Embellishment as well as some twine. You can use a hole punch at the top of the pallet in order to hang your creation or leave as is!
