Learn how simple it is to make wide open spaces mixed media decor. This is a sponsored post.
When I was planning this project, I started out looking for a non-snow covered tree, and I didn’t have any in my craft stash. After seeing repeated posts from my friends in parts of the US announcing that it’s snowing againI decided it would be OK to have a snowy tree in April because that is the reality for so many of you right now! So, as you’re bundled up inside keeping warm, here is a simple mixed media decor project for you to try. Paper House themed collections make it easy to find embellishments that coordinate, and Xyron is the glue that holds the project together.
Supplies Used to Make Wide Open Spaces Mixed Media Decor:
Trace the top and bottom portions of the tin on the starry night patterned paper. Cut them out and trim as needed to make sure they fit inside the tin.
Place the star paper in the Xyron Creative Station. Roll it through to add sticker adhesive to the back of the paper. Peel and stick the papers in the tin.
Cut out the square of the grassy field at dusk. Fussy cut to just keep the grassy part of the paper. Distress the edge of the paper, and use the Xyron sticker maker to add adhesive to the paper to attach it to the bottom part of the tin, over the starry paper.
Peel and stick the reindeer sticker on the right bottom section of the tin. Peel and stick the quote sticker on the top right section of the tin.
Tie a piece of twine through the button. Hot glue the button and the tree in place.
Tie a loop knot in a length of twine, and hot glue the ends to the back of the tin. Take two yellow butterflies (I’m imagining they are moths) and stick them with the adhesive sides together on either side of the twine.
This pretty little piece reminds me of serene hikes on nature trails. I hung this mixed media piece in my craft room so that even when I’m cooped up indoors I can be reminded of the beauty of wide open spaces.
