Funky Flamingo Home Decor Project

Flamingoes are so 'IN' right now, so why not jazz up your favourite living space with this easy, home decor step-by-step from the lovely Katie Skilton! 

Hello..
I would like to share quick tutorial with you using the Sizzix Thinlits Die Set Funky Flamingo. This is such a fun die and one which can really set your creativity loose.  These dies will be on a show coming to you very soon so keep a look out!

With such a fun die it means that you can really add colour and texture to your projects and it works really well.

Here is a quick tutorial on how I created this piece of home decor.

Materials:

  • Sizzix® Thinlits™ Die Set 3PK - Funky Flamingo
  • Sizzix® Thinlits™ Die Set 7PK - Hello Doily
  • Embroidery Hoop
  • Fabric
  • Cardstock
  • Pink Pom Pom
  • Twine
  • Resin Flower
  • Sequins


Method:




Step 1

Place the fabric into the embroidery hoop and pull tight.  Trim around to remove all the excess fabric from the back.



Step 2

2.  Die-cut the Flamingo twice, once from pink and once from black.  Trim the legs and the beak from the black and adhere to the pink.












Step 3

Adhere the pom pom to the Flamingo body and die-cut the wing.  Adhere together.












Step 4

Die-cut the doily and the scalloped circle from the Hello Doily Die Set and layer together.












Step 5 

Adhere the doily to the embroidery hoop.  Add the flamingo.








Step 6

Embellish using tulle ribbon, twine and a resin flower.  Add a few sequins.








This is a very simple project to create and great for adding summer fun to any home. The pom pom just adds some fun detail to the project.




I hope you like this project and I would love to see your take on it!

Katie :)
