has a new product line featuring wood DIY Home Decor designs. The CE store is packed with cool designs ranging from seasonal, coastal, spooky, peaceful and more. Best of all…they are affordably priced- – check them out right here
The DIY Home Decor pieces are large durable wooden shapes ready to be decorated as you please;
paint them, paper them, stencil them, alter them, hang them, gift them.
The shape is smooth unfinished wood, ready to finish. No sanding needed. I chose to paint mine with a base coat of purple paint. After the paint was dry, I used a sea sponge and dabbed a top coat of black acrylic paint – leaving some of the purple showing, sort of mottled.
Below is a great image to show some of the other decorative details used.
The top part of the hat was covered with black cheesecloth – for no other reason than added texture. Plus I really love black cheesecloth at Halloween.
I added a chipboard spider web from Creative Embellishment’s Creative Embellishments – Halloween Scene 2
. Sorry it’s so hard to see clearly – it was hard to photo. It was painted black, then coated with Ranger Crackle Accents for an eery cracked effect. It looks fabulous in person – but you’ll just have to trust me on this.
NOTE – Hat Band Shaker is a Special Request: the shaker hat band is a special request. Typically it will come as one piece. I wanted two pieces to make a shaker.
Creative Embellishments is great at trying to accommodate special requests if possible and reasonable.
The shaker mix inside is a combination of buttons from Buttons Galore and More, plus some of their new Doo Dadz shaker mix.
The cute tomb stone is a 3D button also from Buttons Galore and More – a cool finishing touch.
Here’s a shot of my front door so you can have some sense of proportion.
