You will Need
DecoArt chalk paint – Nostalgia,
Simply Creative Decoupage Paper
Simply Creative Flower Girl 6x6
First edition Foil Glue, Foil, Layered Flower Die Set, Decomache Glue
How to Make
1. Cover one of the M’s with
the Simply Creative decoupage paper by cutting the papers into small squares
and applying decoupage glue to the MDF. Layer your paper onto the letter and brush
the glue on top to secure your decoupage paper.
2. Paint the other M with the
Deco Art Timeless paint, apply two coats to ensure all of the MDF letter is
covered. When dry, apply a small amount of Deco Art Nostalgia paint to a dry
brush, as you only want a hint of this colour and carefully brush on top of
your first painted layer. Once your letter is dry, repeat the last step with
the Timeless paint to add a vintage look.
3. Ensure your letter is fully dry and choose two
parts of the M you would like to add twine to. Wrap double sided tape around
your chosen section and begin to wrap the twine over the tape to secure it. Add
purple gems to coordinate with your MDF letter in the top right hand side of
4. Choose a paper design from
the Simply Creative Flower Girl 6x6 paper pad. Die cut a large and small flower using the First Edition Flower die set and layer
them on the bottom left of your MDF letter, add a gem in the middle of your
flower to finish.
5. Lastly, cover the U with
two coats of the DecoArt Timeless paint. When dry apply some of the foil glue
to the MDF in diagonal lines across the letter.
6. Allow the glue to go clear,
then cut out a square of the First Edition gold foil. Ensure that the shiny
side is facing up when you layer it on your U, then rub the foil across the
letter and slowly peel back to see your golden stripes!
