How to Make
Firstly find a tin that has no sharp edges that is
also clean and ready to use. Paint the outside of the tin with a coat of
DecoArt Chalky Paint- Everlasting with the soft, nylon brush from the First
Edition brush set. Leave to dry.
Measure the width of your tin and cut a strip of
the Simply Creative Unicorn Decoupage paper to fit around the tin.
Paint a layer of First Edition Deco Mache Gloss
Adhesive and Varnish to your tin with a
clean, nylon brush. Carefully begin to wrap the piece of unicorn decoupage
paper around the tin starting from one edge of your decoupage paper.
Once your design is wrapped around the entire
tin, carefully cut the excess paper off.
layer of First Edition Decoupage glue on top of your decoupage design with the nylon
brush as this will help you get a smooth and varnished finish on your design.
Leave your tin to dry.
With glue, add a selection of Dovecraft Bohemian
silver, pink and purple sequins to your tin.
Create a pattern around your tin with your
sequins to add a little glitz to coordinate with your unicorn design.
This is a great tutorial for the kids to
hold their favourite pens and pencils! Alternatively, they could decoupage a box
with a fun design to look after their little knick knacks.
Now their favourite small toys will be safe
inside a fun and creative box they have designed! To finish, they could add a fun title
to their box like ‘Top Secret’ using the
Simply Creative Alphabet and Number glitter stickers.
