Minnie Mouse Magic wall hanging
June 14, 2021
Hello Crafty Friends!
I'm Dana and I'm back today to share a home decor wall hanging project. I think this would be perfect to hang in a little girl's bedroom or maybe give as a gift. I'm using Clear Scraps 12x12 tray Mouse Click Here and mini shaker bow Click Here
To start remove your printer tray pieces from the bag. We'll be painting our top piece first. I used acrylic paints in pastel pink and patina. Apply pink paint on the bottom section of your tray. And patina paint on the ears. Paint along the sides. Set aside to dry.
Next I chose my coordinating papers for decorating my tray. The papers I chose are from Frank Garcia's "Just like Magic" paper collection. But you can use whatever style or pattern you'd like. I took the bottom piece from my tray, traced around the two ears with a pencil, then cut them out. Adhere your pieces onto each ear with glue. I like to use a strong bonding glue such as Beacon 3 in 1. Then take the chipboard layer with the window sections and trace all your base papers to fit inside each section. Apply with glue. Trim around each ear, using a x-acto knife. Then distress any rough edges till smooth. Then glue this onto your bottom piece of your tray.
Take your bottom shaker bow piece and repeat the same process covering with paper etc...Let dry.
Next take your top shaker piece and cover with pink glitter. Let dry. Once it's dry you're ready to fill your shaker. I chose Clear Scraps Butterfly medley Click Here and Heart Love Click Here shaker fillers. Place your filler elements onto the bottom shaker piece. Carefully glue each shaker piece on top of the other. Remember to peel off the protective film on both sides of the acrylic shaker layer, before adhering. Finally add your top piece. Set aside to dry. Do not move or shake until it's throughly dry.
Now we are ready to decorate each section of our tray. I fussy cut some images from the ephermera sheet, inked the edges and applied to my tray with foam dots. This adds dimension to your project. I added some little star stickers in scattered sections of my tray. I cut out some tickets and stapled them together before adhering to my tray. Then added some flowers onto the bottom right area on my tray. Tucked in a few pearls, heart stickers and butterfly. When finished decorating each section, adhere all your remaining chipboard layers onto your tray with glue. Don't forget to peel off the protective film on both sides of the acrylic sheet, before gluing.
To finish your tray, glue your shaker bow at the top between both ears. Then hot glue a piece of tulle for hanging.
Here are some close ups:
