Nautical Home decor...

Hello & Happy Wednesday Everyone!
I'm so excited to share this Home Decor
project I created using some wonderful
products I received from Oriental Trading!!

As most of you know... I like to make wood projects
along with cards... and It's been awhile since I shared a
home decor piece with you... 

In a couple of weeks we're having a FUN Barbecue and
I wanted to create a Center piece for my table... 

This is what I did, to create a sweet
Nautical Themed Display --

I started out with an Unfinished Wood Planter Box & some
assorted Apple Barrel Acrylic Paints

I decided to start with the red paint...

Here's the after picture... looks good so far! 😊

I then wanted to added some Nautical Themed Scrapbook paper
and to my surprise, Oriental Trading had some. It was
a really good heavy weight paper! Which I love to use on wood projects!

I used some Mod Podge to attach my paper to the wood, then I sanded the edges down
to give it a nice finish! I let this sit off to the side while I worked on the next stage...

 I created a bunch of Rosettes using my Tim Holtz rosette dies & my Big shot 
along with the same nautical papers
 I attached them to some Red Polka Dot Straws with some Hot glue.

Once I got all my Rosettes done, I wanted to dress up
a couple of Tall Jars, so I could place some Candles
& some Sea Shells inside for a little ambience... 
I added a little more of that wonderful Nautical themed
Scrapbook paper along with a little burlap to tie it all together.

I then finished dressing up my Planter box, 
with some beautiful Royal & White Satin Ribbon
which worked perfectly with the scrapbook papers....
I created a banner bow & added an Anchor from
the punch outs that came with the Nautical Paper pack
I adhered it to the box with some hot glue...

This is the Completed look! I LOOVE the way it turned out...
I did use a piece of Long Styrofoam & painted it
using the Navy Blue Acrylic Paint... Pushed that inside my
planter box, then pushed the rosettes through the styrofoam
so they'd stay put and added some sea shells on top of it
to complete the look!

My Candles fit inside the Tall Jars perfectly... they're sitting on top
of the Sea shells... And the glow is just perfect!!!

Thanks for Checking out my Nautical Centerpiece!
Have a Fabulous Day!!!
