Flower pot Decoupage

Clay pots have so many uses and are a fantastic medium for crafts. This decoupage flower pots projects are really inexpensive, simple and fun. There are many uses. I have made some for Candle Holders (for the first Holy Communion of my son),  I also made a medium size for a party decoration ( I put some sweets sticks on it)  Depending on what you want, you can use coloured tissue paper, stamps, wrapping paper, magazine or greeting cards cut outs, old newspaper . 
Actually, anything made of paper is good. It's a great moment to think creatively and enjoy. 
This is useful as gift and a home decoration of course..!

I just paint the pot with white acrylic paint for the border I used a gold acrylic paint and after that I paste some  cute images.  Finally I cover all the piece with mod pogde.

This awesome pot was terrific with the marshmallow sticks..!

This was my cute candle holder!!.

Bits of leftover paper...

Hi!  and happy Thursday. 
Today, I am sharing one of my favourite tips.
I  like to challenge myself to use my leftover stash of bits of paper. After all, I have a bunch of pieces of different sizes of paper  that I cannot let go to waste.
When I work with patterned paper, I like to re-think the way I use it. Most of the time, patterned papers are usually used for backgrounds. But with little pieces of different patterns and textures we can find new ways to explore our creativity. I have made single borders. flowers, to combine with buttons and ribbons.  Here some examples..
