Hey there Southern Ridge Trading Company fans, Katelyn here. Fall feels like it has officially arrived here on the west coast of Canada. With the cool weather, I have definitely been in the mood to start creating Christmas projects. So today, I've created for you a beautiful Happy Holidays Wall Hanging, that's perfect to hang on your Christmas tree or give it as a gift to someone this holiday season. You'll want to read below as I share with you how I embellished the chipboard elements on my Happy Holidays Wall Hanging.
To start, pull out one Wood Small Marked Reindeer and one Sm. Wood Sleigh. Apply a coat of Candied Apple Distress Stain to the Sleigh. Once the stain has dried, apply a layer of Brushed Pewter Distress Stain overtop of the sleigh. Apply a coat of Ground Espresso Distress Stain to the Reindeer. After the stain has dried, apply a layer of Brushed Pewter Distress Stain overtop of the reindeer.
Take five snowflakes out of the Snowflakes 712 package. Apply two coats of Titanium White Paint on each snowflake. Once the paint has dried, apply a coat of Raw Umber Antiquing Cream to each snowflake. After the cream looks like it has dried, rub off excess cream.
Next, you'll need one Lg. Wood Snowflake. Apply two coats of Titanium White Paint to the snowflake. Once the paint has dried, apply a coat of Raw Umber Antiquing Cream to the snowflake. After the cream looks like it has dried, rub off excess cream.
Take the small Scribble Triangle Tree out of the package. Blend Fired Brick Distress Oxide Ink over the entire surface of the Christmas tree. With the ink dry, lightly rub White Gold Art Alchemy Metallique Wax over the edges and the middle of the tree.
Pull the Happy Holidays Sentiment from the Wood Words of Christmas - Joy package. Apply a coat of Tarnished Brass Distress Stain to each word.
The last chipboard piece you need is the Star Wreath. Apply Emboss It Ink to the star wreath. With the ink on the wreath, sprinkle Charred Gold Embossing Powder over the entire star wreath. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with your heat tool. Let the wreath cool.
To assemble the wall hanging, adhere an image to the middle of the wreath. In the top left hand corner, adhere two small snowflakes, the large snowflake the "Happy" word. To finish off the corner, adhere two cream roses and two brown roses.
In the bottom right hand corner, adhere the Christmas Tree, the sleigh, three snowflakes and the reindeer. To embellish the rest of the corner, adhere three cream roses and six brown roses.
To the left of the embellishments in the bottom right hand corner, adhere the "Holidays" word.
To finish your wall hanging, add a piece of ribbon to the top of the star wreath.
