Hello friends and happy Friday! Its Jennifer on the blog today to share a fall home decor project I created using the new Large Circle Shiplap Shape! I wanted to make a cute door hanger for my front door this year and am going to show you the easy techniques I used!
I began by painting the top 3/4 of my Shiplap Shape using matte brown acrylic paint. I thinned the paint with water so the effect would look more like stain. I love how it brought out the grain in the wood!
Once my brown paint was dry, I sectioned off the bottom third of the Shiplap Shape with painters tape. I then applied nice, rich shade of yellow acrylic paint as shown.
I set my Shiplap Shape aside to dry to work on my Welcome XL Script Wood Word. I applied a coat of off white chalk paint to my title not being concerned about full coverage.
Once my paint was dry, I lightly sanded the edges of my Wood Word as well as the front surface.
I adhered my Wood Word using a hot glue gun centering it on my Shiplap Shape.
Here is a close up of the Wood Word; you can see how some of the wood shows through the paint.
I also used my hot glue gun to adhere fall colored flowers and ribbon to the top of my Shiplap Shape. I finished by stringing some wood beads onto wire and creating a U shape to hang my creation. I adhered it to the back of the Shiplap using double sided tape and my hot glue gun.
Thank you for stopping by the blog today! You can find all of the Shiplap Shapes by clicking HERE! Have a great day!
