Well, this is my second upcycling project in October. My daughter, Eszter had an empty box, a very sturdy one and I it would have been a pity to throw it away. So I have transformed it into that:
And now I show you the before state:
I painted the two pieces black with acrylic paint.
Then I glued paper napkins on the surfaces with decoupage glue trying to make as much wrinkle as I could.
When it was dry, I glued the thick cardboard cut-outs onto the top.
I painted the box again with DecoArt Chalky Finish Black Paint.
Then I painted over the cutouts with DecoArt Metallic White Pearl paint.
Finally I rubbed the same metallic paint with a sponge onto the whole surface.
And that's it! I hope you like it! Happy crafting to you!
With this project I would like to join:
- the Monday Challenge of the Simon Says Stamp: Halloween.
- Brenda Brown's Give Away over at Bumblebees and Butterflies
- The Mixed Media Monthy Challenge: #29
