Home Decor Tutorial - Be Kind Wall Hanging
Hello everyone! I'm so happy to be sharing my first Design Team project for A Cherry On Top with you today!
I was inspired by spring and the desire to add some new decor pieces to my home this month. I wanted to freshen up some areas and thought a few homemade additions would be perfect!
I love the Mix The Media products from Jillibean Soup, they make the best bases for projects like this! This laser cut wood words from the new American Crafts Pocket Frames collection caught my eye right away! So I used the demensions of those words to guide the size of my base and the embellishments I chose. For a color scheme I went with light greens and pinks to match the decor in my living room.
I hope you will grab some of these products and create one of these adorable wall hangings just for you!
Products I used:
First, use the flat white paint brush to swipe some white paint on the mix the media base. You can make this as thick or thin as you would like, you just want a white base for the words and flowers to pop off of.
Next, I wanted to add a bit of sparkle to my project, so I applied some of the Glitter Kiss to my base. I used my hands but you could use a brush if you like. I liked the way it looked when I just used my finger and it made application easy and fun. I probably added more than I originally planned just because I was enjoying applying it with my finger.
I set that aside to dry, although honestly it dries super fast and really only took a couple minutes.
I then applied the Dylusions paint to my word. I chose Rose Quartz, but you could choose ANY color paint and flowers that you would like for the next two steps to customize your project. I love the idea of navy words and the Georgia Blue flowers from Prima, those would be gorgeous on this project too!
Now the fun part - adhere everything to your wood plank! I used Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. It is my very favorite wet glue and I honestly haven't found anything yet that it won't stick down!
From start to finish, including dry time, this took me less than an hour. And with elements like the white paint and Glitter Kiss not being fussy, even a child could be part of making this project!
Thank you so much for joining me today and if you give this a try, be sure to load it into the gallery so I can see!
Have A Lovely Day!
