DIY Snowflakes Bulb Ornament Pallet Wood Sign

Hello everyone! Christmas Day is 4 days away from today! And I am here today with another Christmas project idea that you can create for this Holidays home decor.

I made this Snowflakes Bulb Ornament Pallet Wood Sign using the Bulb Medium DIY Pallet Shape and 6″ Nordic Snowflakes Stencil. I am sharing the tutorial with pictures at Clear Scraps Blog today.

I started with painted the Bulb Medium DIY Pallet Shape with Metallic Antique Gold acrylic paint and foam brush with 2 coats. I let the first coat to dry at least 30 minutes and then I added the second coat. I set it aside to dry completely.

Next, I mixed the Snow Writer paste with extra fine Crystal Diamond glitter on my craft mat with pallet knife to give extra bling to the snow flake.

I put the 6″ Nordic Snowflakes Stencil on top of the painted bulb ornament pallet wood shape. While I held it down, I added the snow glitter paste on it with the pallet knife. I moved it around until the whole wood surface got covered. This texture paste needs about an hour to dry completely, more if you have thicker paste on it.

I made the red bow out of wired ribbon from my stash and Beacon All-Purpose Glue. I added the bow on that painted bulb ornament pallet wood with the same glue. This glue gun. And it is done. 

This project is easy and fun to make for the Holidays home decor. Check out Clear Scraps store for various designs of the DIY pallet wood shape and stencils.

Handmade Christmas Card and Ornament

Hello hello hello… Today, I would like to share couple handmade gift ideas with you.

Today, I am sharing these watercolored ornament card and ornament slice at Joy Clair Blog. They can be gift ideas that you can make.

I use the Vintage Christmas Ornaments stamp set to create this CAS Christmas card. I stamped the ornaments with Antique Linen Distress Ink on a watercolor paper 140 lbs. I did not use any masks to create that stacked ornaments becuase when I painted them with watercolor paper, the Distress ink reacted with the water and blended in. But if you use non reacted dye inks or pigment inks, you will need the masks.

I painted the ornaments with Shimmerz Inklingz Watercolors (I’m Not Limon, Blue My Mind, and Good As Gold). These watercolor paints have the shimmering, metallic look. I dried the paints with craft heater, and then I sprayed it with some water using the Distress Sprayer. I dabbed the water off with paper towel to get more distressed, vintage look on them.

I added some extra gold splatters on the background with the Good As Gold Shimmerz Inklingz. After that, I dried it again with craft heater and cut it with Double Stitched Rectangles Dies.

I stamped the ornament again three times (just the top of the ornament) on a white cardstock with VersaMark Ink Pad and then I added some silver embossing powder. I heat set the embossing powder with craft heater and then fussy cut them with scissors. I added them on the ornaments with dries-clear permanent glue. I drew the stings with Posca Metallic Silver Paint Marker.

I stamped the sentiment on one of the ornament using MISTI with Delicata Silver Ink Pad, and then I stamped it again with Nocturne VersaFine Clair Ink Pad. I dried ink with craft heater. I added this finished background on top of a green card base with 3D foam tape for extra dimension to all the ornament caps.

Second handmade gift than you can make with Joy Clair Stamps is this chalkboard wood slice Christmas ornament. On this wood, I used The Reason Stamp Set and Snowy Greetings Stamp Set.

First, to paint the base color. I used Chalk Paint for the base. The paint dries fairy quickly. I usually paint the base twice, but if once is enough for you and that is okay, too.

To give the white chalk look on the background, I dibbed my finger in a white paint and lightly painted on the chalkboard. I had wet (not too wet) paper towel to remove the paint so not too much on the background.

I stamped the images and sentiment on both side with white acrylic paint, too. I put the stamp on acrylic stamping block and I added the paint with mini brayer. I put the stamp directly in a bowl with warm water so the paint won’t dried on the stamp and will be easy to clean.

I tied up the twine and done. You have a handmade Christmas ornament that you can also mass-produce this ornament as gifts.

I hope these projects give you some ideas to get crafty this Holidays. What would you make for this Holidays?

DIY Be Merry Farmhouse Pallet Sign

Hello hello hello… Christmas is 15 more days from today. Decorating the house is one of the things we do as family. And, I love making Christmas decorations. For this Christmas, I made this Be Merry Farmhouse Pallet Sign.

I am sharing full tutorial at Clear Scraps Blog today. I made this Farmhouse pallet sign using the Rectangle Medium DIY Pallet Shape (6.5″ x 16.5″ x 1/8″ birch wood pallet shape). The stencil I used is Be Merry 6″x16″ Stencil, which is one of the fabulous Farmhouse Stencils collection from Clear Scraps.

You will also need foam brushes and all-surface acrylic paints or chalk acrylic paints. You can use your own Christmas colors, on mine I used red (I mix it with black to get the burgundy shade) and white for the letters.

I made the burlap bow out of wired burlap ribbon from my stash, and then I added it on the wood with glue gun. I used hot setting on my glue gun and Gorilla Glue stick for sure it is strong.

I love how it looks on our mantle with the other Christmas decorations! I hope this project will give you an idea for your home decor at this holly jolly Holidays. Make sure to visit Clear Scraps Store for the wood pallet and stencils, and more home decor supplies!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. I hope you all have a wonderful Holidays!
