I used Americana Acrylics in Spiced Pumpkin and Moss Green from DecoArt to create this plaque along with Beacon Adhesives Fast Finish Decoupage.
Die cut letters in your initials from Elmers Foam Board were painted with Espresso brown paint. I originally planned to give the board to my Mom for Mothers Day but missed the deadline and decided to keep the board for myself!!
I trimmed a rectangle and house motif from Susan K. Weckresser for Suzy Bee Studios papers and applied them to the plaque with the decoupage medium.
The step can be completed using a foam brush and your fingers to apply the medium and smooth out air bubbles. I always make a habit of sanding the edges of the piece I am decoupaging as well as cuting them a 1/4" smaller to ensure the edges are even with the wood.
Hand dyed buttons from Laura Kelly and Buttons Galore and More make a nice fill in for the bird cut out. To do this I first glued two wood squares I had in my stash with Beacon Adhesives Tacky glue to make a place to layer on the buttons.
This same glue also was used to apply the foam letters and wood strip.
My colors are bright and cheerful but you can customize your jewelry holder to suit your decor.
Hope you enjoyed this post! Thanks for letting me share!
