Well that's a shocker! A second post from me in as many days! Caused mainly by the fact I am off work with a really sore throat so I have not only had time to finish my tissue box cover I mentioned in yesterdays post, but to blog about it aswell!
So without further ado.. here it is.. as promised
First I took the MDF wooden cover and covered it in plain white tissue.. the sort you get in a shoe box..nothing fancy! I adhered it with plain PVA glue and left to dry.
Once dry, I dry brush painted the whole thing in a white chalk paint to soften the effect. (I aim to place this beside my bed so I wanted a soft romantic feel to it.)
Finally I layered some cheesecloth on the top of the box and added a cluster of embellishments on two corners. I chose some roses, a tassel, a girlie handbag, a heart and some pearls and stuck it all on with a hot glue gun.
So.. a quick post, as promised. I hope you like my overtly feminine, romantic tissue box cover.. and I hope it has inspired you to do something similar.. it really is the easiest technique with minimal skills required.. good luck!
