Paper napkins with lovely Christmas designs are all you need to decorate plain shingles for instant wall decorations. With a bit of glitter, you can give any design a festive look.
The shingles shown here and below could be Christmas songs...
For this project you will need:
- plaster of Paris shingle or wood shingle - white acrylic paint if using wood shingle - paper napkin with design of your choice - paper napkin applique glue - soft paint brush for adding glue - textured snow - iridescent glitter - drill for drilling hole - cording to hang decoration
1. If using a wooden shindle, paint it white. If using a plaster of Paris shingle, go to step 2. 2. Now you can start with the paper napkin applique. Follow the instructions below to learn how to add the paper napkin to the shingle. Let it thoroughly dry. 3. Brush on textured snow. 4. Shake glitter over the wet snow. Tap the shingle over a piece of paper to eliminate excess glitter. You can return the excess glitter back to the container. Let the paint dry. 5. Drill a hole through the top of the shingle and add the cording for hanging.
