Shabby Chic Holiday d├ęcor/door hangers.

Beverly | Across the Blvd

To make these decorative pieces I started with a pine tree mold and used hot glue to make the molds. The hot glue sets up within a minute and the piece can be released from the mold.
As soon as the mold is filled, I give the mold a good tap to make sure that the glue has filled in the mold completely and any air bubbles release.

To make the base, I used popsicle sticks and on others I used tongue depressors. I just lined up a few and hot glued two across the back and then did a dry brush  base coat of white.

Next, I painted the base and the trees with a dry brush of green chalk paint. I dry brushed some white on the trees to look like snow and flecked some white paint to create falling snow. 

I glued on the molds and decoupaged a few sayings. (The quotes were printed on coffee tinted paper and then coated with a spray of clear matte to keep the ink from running when decoupaged.)I glued on scraps of painters tarp for the hangers.

And of course, I added some large flake glitter to make the snow glisten. And for a Coastal Bohemian effect I added some tiny starfish toppers.


Now be sure and pop in to visit these other bloggers for more Christmas craft inspiration
