I have another stash busting project for you today! This sweet little Scrappy Spring Deer Artwork is perfect for using up your extra fabric and supplies – and so perfect for Spring!
I love the little fabric deer in the center – and it is set off with a fabulous gold glitter wood grain background!
It is a super inexpensive project too!
So let’s get started! Here’s what you’ll need:
- Wood shape background
- glitter, Mod Podge, Mod Podge Rocks! Wood Grain stencil
- scroll frame
- large frame for hanging
- fabric scraps
- paint for background and scroll frame
- vinyl or something similar for center of frame
Start by painting your wood shape your background color. I used a basic white.
Paint your small scroll frame (this is from Michaels – super cute and inexpensive too). Trace the inside of the frame on a piece of vinyl and cut out the piece a little larger than the traced line.
To make the glitter background, I used the new Mod Podge Rocks wood grain stencil. Have you seen this line? It’s by Amy from Mod Podge Rocks and the stencils are perfect for adding glitter and texture to your projects. I love this wood grain stencil!
Place the vinyl oval in the center of the wood shape. This will make it easy for you to leave the center of the shape empty.
The stencil is sticky, so it makes it really easy to use. Place it on the background and using a foam brush, sponge on a thick layer of Mod Podge.
Cover the whole area to be stenciled, moving the stencil as needed. You’ll want to work fairly fast, Mod Podge dries pretty quickly.
While the Mod Podge is still wet, cover the whole area in glitter. Let dry and then shake off the excess glitter. If you need to go over some spots, you can use the straight edge of a foam brush to add a little more Mod Podge and then glitter.
Once your glitter is dry, peel off your center oval.
For the center piece, you can choose any shape. I printed out a little deer and then cut it out of fabric backed with fusible webbing. Here’s the link to the deer I used. (The fusible webbing makes the deer easier to cut out.)
Cut out a fabric oval for a background the same size as your vinyl oval.
Iron the little deer to the fabric oval, then glue it in place on the back side of the scrolled frame. Glue the scrolled frame in place on the center of your glittered background.
Take a blank frame (the dollar store has tons of these) and wrap it in fabric scraps.
Knot a piece of jute on the top edge of the frame and glue the ends to the back of our wood shape.
Now you have a cute new bit of Spring Artwork all decorated with pretty fabrics, glitter and a deer. So fun!
If you want to check out the Mod Podge Rocks stencils, you can head over to the Plaid website, or check your local Michaels! There are some really fun backgrounds and stencils in the line.
(And this is not a sponsored post. Amy sent a few of us her stencils to try out, and it was so fun to check out her new line and to get to show them off a bit! I think you’ll really like them too!)
