Adding Some Color and Shimmer to the HolidaysThis Christmas I am changing it up a bit. After two years of white and neutrals for my Holiday decor, I am ready for some color. So after purchasing some red chevron fabric online and then getting an amazing box full of glittery supplies from Tulip Shimmer, I was ready to create my first Christmas craft of the season.
Shimmer Sheets from Tulip. It didn't take me long to decide that I wanted to use the Shimmer Sheets to make my own DIY Glitter Reindeer Art.
My favorite things about these new Tulip Shimmer Sheets are:
1. No mess glitter! You can create beautiful glittered crafts without getting glitter all over your house.
2. No fancy 'cutters' or machines required. Although the Tulip Shimmer Sheets are easily used with those cutters, you don't need one! So if you are like me and don't own a cutter-- all you need are your scissors!
Want to make your own DIY Glitter Reindeer Art?Here are the supplies you will need:
-Tulip Shimmer Sheets
-Cloth to place between the iron and your Tulip Shimmer Sheets
-Pattern of Your Choice
Step 1: To begin, I searched online for a reindeer silhouette to use as my pattern. I found this great one at ManMade. I printed out two sizes and once I got started and did a little measuring with matting, I ended up using smaller one.
Step 4: Once my glittery reindeer was cut out, I simply ironed him down to the chevron fabric. I placed the Shimmer Sheet on the fabric (non-glittery side against the fabric) and then put a thin cloth or paper towel between the glitter and the iron. After about 45 seconds, I picked up the iron and double checked to make sure my reindeer was securely attached to the fabric. If you have any parts that didn't adhere the first time, just re-iron.
Step 5: Display! After trying him in a few spots, my new DIY Glitter Reindeer Art is now proudly sitting on my mantle. I will be sharing the rest of my Christmas decor and some more fun 'shimmery' projects throughout the entire month of December- I hope you will join me!
A special thanks to Tulip Shimmer for the amazing craft supplies.
