Clear Scraps--Shiplap Shapes--I Love Winter Home Decor
January 07, 2023
Hi there everyone! Laura here with you today to kick start the New Year with some crafting inspiration!
So as all the holiday decor comes down, I always find myself looking for a little decor to brighten up those dull winter days. I love the buffalo plaid look and that combo of red, white and black for a cozy winter theme, so I grabbed some patterned papers, a stencil and some paint, and one of the Clear Scraps Heart Shiplap Shapes in the large size.
These pieces are so large,pieces are SO large--a 12x12 paper will not cover them. So I started by painting the top and bottom with black acrylic paint, then I used the Clear Scraps 6" Nordic Snowflakes Stencil to add snowflakes with white paint. Then I cut 2 pieces of plaid background paper to cover the center.
To cover the gap left, I cut a larger piece of buffalo plaid paper, and then punched a snowflake border out of black cardstock. Next step was to create the cute mitten shakers. These are the Clear Scraps Mini Shaker Mittens. They are also painted with black and white acrylic paint, and the back traced onto a pretty paper, cut out, then glued onto the back piece.
Once dry, they were filled with Clear Scraps shaker fillers--a combo of the Sprinkles Love Mix and the Holiday Sequins (with the green color pulled out). They were tied with a twine bow and glued onto the buffalo plaid area. Then to add a little fun touch, I painted some of the Clear Scraps Nordic Snowflake Chipboard Embellishments to place around the mittens. Then I added enamel dots on the snowflakes. You could use any bling, or even some glitter glue to give them a little pizzazz. The title was added next to this.
I used some glittery alphas, a few stickers, and cut a heart from the buffalo plaid. The result is a cute project to decorate during the winter doldrums!
Thanks for stopping by today!
