Party Decor with Deco Foil
I hope you are enjoying our Deco Foil projects this week on the blog! If you haven't seen all the great cards and ideas yet, please scroll back through the blog so you dont miss anything!
Today I want to share with you a few easy, fun ideas you can try to spruce up your fall decorations- either for a party or just for home decor!
First up is this easy glittered pumpkin. We all know we can use Deco Foil's TRANSFER GEL for foiling, but did you know you can use it for glittering, as well? Since it dries clear, I took some gel, added spots all over the pumpkin, and then sprinkled on some black glitter while the gel was still wet. Then, after the gel dried and was clear, only the glittered polka dots were left. Fast, easy, and cute! This technique also works on paper, so you could easily apply the gel over a stencil and then sprinkle on some glitter for a fun, shimmery design!
Next, I have some little treat bags to share with you. These are just plain white paper bags that are the perfect size for filling with candy. I took the stamp set, TURKEY DAY, applied some TRANSFER GEL with a foam ink blender, and then stamped on the bag. After letting the gel dry, I ran it through my laminator to foil the stamped image. Then, I stamped some leaves from the AUTUMN THANKS and foiled those as well. After fussy cutting the foiled leaves, I clipped them to the filled treat bags with some mini clothespins and a little twine bow. Perfect party favor for guests!
Last but not least, I created some fun mason jar luminaries but just taking the foiled negatives and wrapping them around some mason jars, adhering them with some CRAFT GLUE. Those foil negatives are just too pretty to toss, and since they have the designs that you can see through, they are perfect for lanterns! I would advise using battery candles just to avoid any fire hazards!
I hope this post has inspired you to use your Brutus Monroe and Deco Foil items in some out-of-the-box and creative ways! These products are so versatile in that they can be used for papercrafting as well as home decor!
