Countdown To Christmas
Antique Ornament Chipboard Christmas Card

Believe Large Square Shiplap Shape

Hello! It's Jennifer here on the blog today to share a Christmas home decor project I created using one of the fun Shiplap Shapes!  I love creating my own DIY projects for my home or to give as gifts! Clear Scraps has so many products to choose from!  For today's post, I used the Large Square Shiplap Shape and I'm going to show you the techniques I used!  


I began by applying a coat of chalk paint in green to the front of my Shiplap Shape.  I did not worry about full coverage or it being perfect.  After my paint was dry, I used sanding paper to distress the edges as well as the front of the shape.  


Taking the Believe XL Script Wood Word and Christmas Tree Mini DIY Pallet Shape, I painted each with chalk paint in off white.  Again I did not worry about my coverage being perfect as I wanted a distressed look. 


On my Tree Mini Pallet, I added a strip of patterned paper to the center slat by measuring and cutting the edges.  I applied the paper with my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive. 


I set aside my tree to work on my "wreath".  I used a cut file on my Silhouette with different patterns to create a circle wreath around the Shiplap.  I applied my pieces using the Beacon Adhesive. 


Once I was happy with my placement, I used my hot glue gun to apply the Believe Script Word as shown.  I added a couple weights to the ends while my glue was drying to ensure it was secure.


I added some jute and strips of buffalo plaid ribbon to the front of my tree as well as some enamel dots and chipboard stickers. I affixed the Tree with my hot glue gun.  


I gathered some buffalo plaid ribbon and added a floral piece  and affixed with hot glue. 


With my circle punches, I added different patterns around my wreath as well as additional enamel dots.


Thank you for stopping by the blog today! I hope this inspires you to create your own DIY project with a Clear Scraps Shiplap Shape!  Have a wonderful day!
