Hi, the Holidays are in full swing and I got with the program and made this cute door hanger for my guest room to welcome family.
This cute door hanger is featured over at the Helmar blog today, please go on over and say hello. Also my design team mates are getting very creative this month so you will want to browse for ideas.
For this project I chose two specific adhesives from Helmar
To make this project I started off with a wood plaque I bought at Michaels. I then painted it white with acrylic paint and put down a layer of gesso using my crafter's workshop swirl stencil
I then used Helmar's 450 quick dry to adhere my paper, cheesecloth, chipboard and transparencies. I used it because it dries very quickly and once dry will not come off. Its good for adhering to gesso like below, wood, heavy items
Next I used the Tacky Craft glue because I needed a thick dry clear glue for my beads and glitter. This glue allows me to embed the beads and add more layers to give it full coverage
Thank you for stopping by today, I wish you all the best this Christmas
