Vicki here today to share another Home Decor project for the holidays. The Holiday Hustle Collection is so fun and inspiring, filled with pretty papers, and matching ephemera, tags, buttons ect. So much to inspire you when creating your projects.
I found this plain inexpensive wood star at the local craft store, and thought it would be a fun base for these adorable pieces from this collection.
This project came together easy. As a matter of fact I’m thinking it would be a great project for my craft group.
I love using foam squares and tape to give some of my pieces dimension. It looked especially cool on this project because the car seems to look like its riding on top of the snow.
It’s always my favorite part of my projects.. to go back and add little bits of interest. These buttons are just adorable! I really wanted to incorporate this cute little bow, and I found the perfect spot for it.
After adding a few sprigs of greenery I added a Fancy Pants Cork star to the top to finish it off.
I have this hanging on the cupboard door of my Hoosier and it looks adorable.
I hope you feel inspired to create a little holiday diy project of your own.
I love making home decor projects with my Fancy Pants Products, and my favorite time of the year to do that is defiantly Christmas! The new Holiday Hustle Collection is so fun and inspiring for all kinds of projects. When I saw the Chipboard Number Set/ Countdown, I was totally inspired to create a Christmas Countdown of my own. I found this 15″ wood tree at Hobby Lobby as my base, ( but it would also be super easy to make with paint sticks or yardsticks). .
Of course the point, is to make your way down to the big day 😊 So…. this ephemera piece could not have been more perfect. I added it to the tree with foam squares so it could stand off the wood a bit.
There are all kinds of great ephemera pieces in the Ephemera and Tag Packs. I added a piece of wire to the top of this tag and tied on a little bell. The number pieces are sticky back but I added mine to the tree with foam squares, so that it would give more space for the hanging piece.
I used many of the metallic red pieces from this collection, so in keeping with that, I used rub on red metallic on the wood star I added to the top.
This is a fun project as a gift for the kids or grand kids, as they count down to the big day, or a project they could do with you.
Hello friends! Soon we will be celebrating the US Thanksgiving holiday. A lot of Americans like to decorate their homes with autumnal decor, and some have lots of friends and family over for a special dinner. To me Thanksgiving is all about family, friends, love, gratitude and giving thanks for blessings big and small…oh and of course the food. The project I am sharing today, is a fun way to create place cards.
Using several different collections, I grabbed pattern papers that remind me of fall.
To start each turkey, you will need 3 strips of paper in the following sizes.
1 in x 9 in
1.5 in x 9 in
2 in x 9 in
Each strip will be scored at 1/2 inch, and folded accordion style.
On each end of each strip, apply adhesive. Fan them into half circles. The 1 inch strip will go first, then the 1.5 in and then the 2 in. I started using the 1.5 inch, to ensure I had enough room for all three.
Using strong permanent adhesive, adhere each fan to Fancy Pants Designs corrugated paper.
Continue until all 3 are adhered.
Choose solid pattern paper, to create the turkey body, the beak, snoods and the feet. I just freehand cut them with scissors. You will also need a googly/wobbly eye, you can find them in any craft store.
Your turkey just needs a name and its ready to be placed on a plate.
This little turkey just makes me smile, and what a cute way to tell your guests where to sit.
Hey Everyone! Vicki here today, sharing a bit of spooky fun. I was so excited to see this super cute Halloween collection from Fancy Pants called Spellbound
I was seriously checking the mail daily, waiting for this collection to come! I had a project in mind before it even arrived.
I wanted to create a pair of these witches shoes with it. It’s fun to plan out what papers will be used for each different piece. I really like using the 12×12 sheets for large pieces and the smaller prints from the 6×6 pad for the little accent pieces. I pretty excited about the fun striped pattern. Perfect for the witches socks, don’t you think?
There are so much fun things in the Ephemera pack that I could have used on the shoes, but I decided on the word “Halloween” , the spider web and the bats.
I wanted my shoes to be free standing so I attached them with a strip of cardstock at the back of the heal. I had adhered the paper to the chipboard with adhesive sheets before die cutting it. I used my die design from AccuCut but ( if you don’t have this die, or a die cutting machine, you could find a pattern online and cut it could by hand). It would also make a darling album of course.
With all the fun papers and ephemera in this collection, where are tons of different ways you could create a pair of these shoes.
You could also make the legs longer and stick them upside down in a big bowl of candy. Wouldn’t that be fun?
Any way you do it, I know you will feel inspired when you get your hands on this collection!
