Christmas Sparkle Home Decor
December 26, 2022
Hello Craft Friends!
Dana here and I'm happy to be on the Clear Scraps blog sharing my Christmas Home Decor project using several Clear Scraps products. I enjoy decorating for the holidays. How about you?
Today's project we will be using Clear Scraps Wood Deco album Click here and Clear Scraps Wood Holiday Collection Shapes Click here
The papers I chose are from Frank Garcia's Christmas Sparkle collection! But any Christmas papers you already have will work just fine!
To begin, we will only be using one of the Deco album pieces (the one with the tab) for our project base. You can save the other pages for a future project or album. I am applying Tim Holtz Distress Ink Gathered Twigs on all my papers as well as my wood pieces.
Taking some Folkart Matte White Wicker acrylic paint I applied about 1" border around my wood base piece. Set aside to dry.
After your wood base has dried, I cut a patterned paper measuring 10 & 1/2 x 4 5/8 inches, inked the edges leaving about a 1/4inch white border all around the edges.
Now take your 3 Wood shapes out of the package. I chose 3 coordinating papers to use to cover my wood shapes.
Snowflake Shape: I took applied some light blue ink to all edges of my Snowflake. Then sprinkled some Sara Davies Winter Wonderland Sparkling Snowflake embossing power over the top. And shake off any excess embossing powder. The heat emboss using a heat tool. For the inside of my Snowflake, using a scalloped diecut I cut out the center of my Snowflake. Inked the edges and glued my paper to the center using Beacon glue. Here's a photo:
Christmas tree shape: I applied some copper ink and gold embossing powder over the top. Shake off any excess embossing powder and heat embossing with your heat tool.
Then I traced around my shape onto my patterned paper. Cut out, glued my paper down and trimmed away any excess paper using my x-acto knife. Here's a photo:
Ornament Shape: I covered the top of my Ornament with some silver glitter paper. Then traced around my shape onto another patterned paper. I chose this cute Santa paper. I think he's adorable!
Now the fun of decorating your wood shapes! For the tree, I applied some Dazzle sticker stars and fussy cut this lovely angel girl and adhered her onto the right side of my tree using foam dots. I applied some Stickles Diamond glitter on her hat and coat to add some Sparkle! Here's a closeup!
For the Ornament shape I glued a silver white tassel on the tip of Santa's hat. Fussy cut a Christmas Sparkle sentiment and adhered to the top of my Santa image creating a ripple effect. Then some Stickles glitter Stardust on his beard and fur on his hat! Here's a closeup!
Snowflake Shape I applied one of the chipboard sticker shapes in the center of my Snowflake. Then adhered some light blue crystals on the spheres of my Snowflake. Here's a closeup!
To finish this project, I applied some foam tape to the back of each shape before adhering to my wood base. This adds dimension.Then I took some iridescent tinsel and glued a piece along the top edge of my wood base. To cover the 3 holes at the top, I applied 3 chipboard sticker hearts over the holes. You can add a hanger with ribbon or attach some metal brackets on the backside as I chose to do. Now you have a Christmas handmade keepsake to enjoy for many years to come!
I hope you enjoyed my project today and will be inspired to create one of your own. We'd love to see your creations! So please share with us on our Clear Scraps Creative page.
