Hey everybody! Leslie here, sharing a super fun gnome-themed Christmas home decor piece featuring the Medium House DIY Pallet Shape and Mini Shaker Gnome! The pallet shapes and mini shakers are so much fun to play with!
I covered the three sections of the Medium House DIY Pallet Shape with coordinating Christmas patterned papers, inked the edges of the sections with white pigment ink, and added a 3mm pink pearl bling strip to the roof outline. I stamped a sentiment in green ink and die cut it with a sentiment strip die, and adhered it to the roof section.
Next, I die cut two trees from dark aqua cardstock and adhered the outlines to the left of the house. I die cut the two trees once more from light aqua cardstock and adhered the negative space pieces on the tree outlines on the house.
Turning my attention to the Mini Shaker Gnome, I colored his hat and robe with alcohol markers and sponged white pigment ink on his beard. I added accents to his beard with an alcohol marker, added accents to his hat with an acrylic paint pen, and covered his shoes with light aqua cardstock. I assembled the shaker from the bottom up, adhering the two bottom chipboard forms and then adding 3mm clear droplets to the shaker compartments. I adhered the acrylic divider (with the protective film removed from both sides) and then adhered the front chipboard form. I clamped the shaker for about 10-15 minutes to be sure the layers adhered well, and adhered the gnome beside the trees.
