Hello friends and happy Friday! Its Jennifer on the blog to share a fun, fall home decor project I created using the new Small House Shiplap Shape! I love the Shiplap Shapes because they are perfect to create your own DIY home decor projects; and they come in small and large size! We have definitely had fall weather here in Central Illinois with temperatures in the mid 60's and sunny skies! The leaves are even beginning to turn so that makes me want to craft something for my house!
I began by painting the front of the Shiplap Shape with brown acrylic paint. I did add water to thin out my paint and to give the end result a "stained" look. You can go as light or dark as you see fit for your own project.
Next, using the HOME Large Chipboard Embellishment Shape, I painted the "H" and "E" with green chalk paint. I then covered the "O" and "M" with patterned paper using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive. I sanded the edges using my sanding tool on all four letters.
Again using my Beacon adhesive, I affixed a background patterned paper to my Shiplap. I then mounted my photo onto cardstock and an additional pattern then added a metal clip. I affixed it to my project using foam squares to give some dimension.
I adhered the HOME Chipboard letters again using my foam squares next to my photo.
I then added small embellishments and flowers from the collection (as well as my stash). I tend to "pop up" a lot of my elements with foam tape or pop dots.
Lastly, I punched holes at the top of my Shiplap Shape with my Big Bite and threaded some cute gingham ribbon through and knotted.
