Hanging Decoration Step-by-Step Guide with Creativ Company!

We loved these stunning hanging decorations from Creativ Company so much, so we asked them for a step-by-step guide, so you can create them too! Creativ Company are live on Hochanda this Monday 29th February at 11am, 2pm and 5pm. Tune in for more tips, tricks and inspiration!  

These hanging decorations are a shaped piece of card with a cut out/glued-on Vivi Gade Design paper design, attached to a purse frame. A lace border is attached at the bottom, and a long piece of satin ribbon is attached to each side of the purse frame.

Step 1
Cut out a design of your choice from the design paper.


Step 2
Print and cut out the template which is available as a separate PDF file for this idea. Draw the outline of the template onto a piece of plain card and cut it out. A TIP: make the piece of card longer at the bottom depending on the size of the chosen design.


Step 3
Cut a piece of patterned design paper the same shape but slightly smaller than the piece of plain card. Attach this as well as the chosen design onto the large piece of card with double-sided tape.


Step 4
Decorate with self-adhesive design stickers.

Step 5
Attach the laced border at the bottom using double-sided tape.


Step 6
Apply small blobs of glue in the front of the purse frame (Clear Multi Glue Gel). Place the decorated piece of card in the purse frame and leave it to dry with the front facing down.


Step 7
Thread each end of a long piece of silk ribbon through the hole on either side of the purse frame and secure with a knot.

How To Give Used Candle Jars A New Lease Of Life

Hello again everyone, I have a completely different post for you this time!

So I’m challenging myself on 2 levels – 1) use up my stuff; and 2) try something new.

Well I had some empty candle jars so I thought this would be a good way to use up some stuff and try something new at the same time and this is what I came up with.

I am over the moon with the results as it’s the first time I’ve tried anything like this.

What I used: ·Empty candle jar ·Decoart white gesso ·Starlight paints ·Decoart metallic paints ·Imagination Crafts rice papers ·Imagination Crafts fabric glue ·Twine ·Raffia ·Hessian ·Ribbon ·Paper flowers and embellishments from craft box
Here’s what I did:
