Hello! It's Jennifer to share one of the fabulous new Shiplap Shapes with you! These new wood shapes are so fun to work with to create home decor projects! I used the Large Chicken Shiplap Shape to create a fun sign to hang in my kitchen! And I'm going to show you my techniques!
I began by painting the majority of the Shiplap Shape with chalk paint in off white. I did not worry about perfect coverage as I wanted a distressed look for my project.
Next, I cut a funny sentiment on my Silhouette with red vinyl. I used transfer tape to apply it to my Shiplap.
Using washi tape, I sectioned off the feet of the chicken to paint them in red chalk paint. I also painted the tail feathers and beak. I found that the paint was too flat so I used sanding paper to add a distressed effect.
Here is a close up of the vinyl on the Shiplap! I used a glossy vinyl; in hindsight I wish I would have used a matte finish.
Using my hot glue gun, I adhered ribbon and a rolled flower to the neck of my chicken. I finished by adding some jute string to hang my creation in my kitchen!
