One last Christmas project.
I meant to wind this project up last week but just finished it yesterday.
I’m calling it a stencil wallpaper decoupage project ….and that’s what I’m sticking to….no pun intended.
You see I’ve had this red and green textured wallpaper forever.
I’ve tried using it as a table runner, display backdrop, and several other things.
Nothing seems to work.
When I did the nutcracker stencil project last week I had an ah-ha moment!
I started this project with a reclaimed cabinet door.
I decided to use the back side of the door and paint it black.
The front side was covered with sample paint finishes from old projects!
The Royal Design Studios Nutcracker Stencil and the wallpaper.
I bought the wallpaper at a thrift store because I loved the velvety texture and the color.
I don’t remember what I paid for it.
You guys know me….it had to be a deal.
I taped the stencil to the back of the wallpaper and traced inside the lines.
Then I cut out the pieces.
It reminded me of cutting out paper dolls.
Some of you have probably never done that.
I distressed the raised sides of the door.
There was yellow paint underneath the black and the distressing looks good.
Then I brushed on Elmer’s wood glue.
I like it!
What about you guys?
Have a great day,
linking to these parties….
