This December month I’ll post many projects on my blog, to give you some inspiration and ideas for your Christmas projects – and also to help you spend your holiday time creatively. In my previous posts I showed you a quick Christmas Mini Album, a 1-sheet Micro Wallet, a set of Nutcracker Sweet Christmas Cards and some Trishutter Christmas Cards. Today: Part 5 of this December Deluge of creative ideas 🙂
Decoupaging is a great technique for altering projects, especially when you’re out of paper crafting ideas and want to switch materials a bit to stir things up again 🙂
This decoupaged set of a Christmas candle and a matching box is quite easy to make and will make for a great Christmas holiday afternoon. Plus, they’re a great little emergency gift set for that one neighbour you forgot 😉
The only materials you need are:
- one or two Christmas napkins (the regular, layered paper ones),
- some mod podge (and a brush to apply it)
- the objects you wish to alter
And: some patience while it’s drying 😉
Note: if you wish to alter a candle like I have, please use special candle podge.
You can watch my free video tutorial on how to decoupage a candle to see how it’s done, and how easy it is!
Here’s the little Christmas set I created!
