Mona Diwan on the blog today as Guest DT again!! Diwali is here and if you are scouring for last minute gifting ideas, then take a deep breath. This festive season, move away from the tried and tested sweets and be little innovative. Craftreat has newly launched amazing decoupage papers for this Diwali .
Today I am going to share with you decoupage projects, I made using beautiful Craftreat Decoupage Papers . These projects are going to jazz up your home this Diwali.
I have used Craftreat decoupage papers - Ethenic India 2 and Chalk Paints by Plaid available at The Craft Shop to make these sets of pillars for tea light candles. Finally I fussy cut the elements of paper to decoupage them on the top of my base with Mod Podge . These papers are so beautiful that I do not feel like cutting them. I used craftreat Mandala Stencil on the sides of pillars with chalk paints only. In the last I gave the final top coat of Mod Podge. Here are the pictures of the tea light candle holder.
For this Tray I took Craftreat Decoupage papers Ethenic india -3. I glued the paper using Mod Podge. To protect the tray I added clear Resin in the centre of the tray. I did some stencilling on the sides to match the paper. Here are few pictures of the tray.
In this project I made a wall décor to hold candle or diffuser. In this project I used image transfer technique. I applied Image transfer medium by Mod Podge to the positive side of the paper and to the plaque surface. I kept it overnight for drying. In the morning I rubbed the surface with damp sponge and removed the white paper. These craftreat papers are best for image transfer. Finally I gave a top coat of Mod Podge Matte. It was pretty simple !
All the projects in totality
