Hello Craft Friends!
Dana here! I have a fun and easy Home Decor project to share with you today! I love to decorate every room in my house! So why not make something to display on your refrigerator or magnet board? Today we will be using 3 different small Shiplap shapes! Cow head Click here Mason jar Click here and cutting board Click here
To begin, we'll start with our small cow head. I took some light tan acrylic paint and applied to the ears and both sides of my cow's face. Then I applied some white acrylic paint down the middle of the cows face. Let dry.
From my craft stash I found some goggle eyes and adhere to both sides of my cow's face, using a strong quick bonding glue like Beacon 3 in 1 glue. Set aside to dry.
Next I chose a paper flower and acouple ephemera pieces to decorate my cow's face. I applied foam dots on the back of my floral ephemera piece and adhered on the top of my cow's head. Then I adhered my paper flower on top! I adhered an ephemera sentiment towards the bottom of my cow's mouth. Then using hot glue, I adhered a piece of magnet onto the back of my wood shape.
Next we will decorate our Shiplap Mason jar. To begin I applied some yellow acrylic paint to the top portion of my Mason jar lid. Let dry.
Now I chose 2 coordinating papers from Echo Park's Farmhouse Kitchen collection. I cut 2 papers measuring 3 & 3/4 x 1 & 1/2 inches from the red plaid patterned paper. Inked my edges with Distress Ink and adhered to the top and bottom spaces on my Mason jar shape. The other floral paper measures 3 & 3/4 inches x 1 & 1/4 inches. Ink around the edges and adhere to the middle section of your Mason jar.
I chose another ephemera sentiment, added some foam dots to the back and adhered in the center of my jar. I took some colored twine and wrapped around the top portion of my Mason jar a few times, and tied into a knot. I took a paper tole flower from my crafty stash, and using a bone folder I curled my petals of each flower piece to add some interest and depth. Then added some pop dots to the back of each flower piece before adhering them on top of each other. I glued a tiny yellow button in the center of my flower and added a magnet onto the back to finish my Mason jar!
For our last kitchen magnet, we will add cream acrylic paint to the front and sides of our Shiplap cutting board shape. Let dry.
I chose another ephemera sentiment, inked the edges of both my ephemera piece and around the wood cutting board. Then applied foam dots to the back of my sentiment and adhered to the center of my cutting board shape. Then I tied a ribbon through the hole at the top of my cutting board and tied into a bow. I adhered a cute 3D salt/pepper sticker towards the bottom right corner of my wood shape. To finish I glued a magnet onto the back of my wood shape.
