Hello everyone, Jen here to share with you a fun home decor project creating hand painted reflective lights. I adore small white lights and this project gives me more excuses to keep them up all year long!
With the holiday’s fast approaching I thought it would be fun to show you how to create something bright and festive for any gathering or special celebration.
- Paper ( Here I used a heavy weight watercolor paper)
- Stencils I used: 12 x 12 TCW 589 and 12 x 12 TCW 528 “Daliy Buzz”
- X–ACTO -knife
- Set of small white lights
- Paint (I used watercolors and mica sprays)
Set up your paper, place stencil and use pen to trace shapes. I used the flower portion of both these stencils. Here is 12 x 12 TCW 528 “Daliy Buzz”. I started tracing multiple flower shapes and varying sizes until my page filled up with the traced design.
Step 2: painting each design. Choose colors for your flowers. I used watercolors but you can use any paint of choice.
After I painted each flower I then used my Mica sprays, I love how these shimmer!
Step 3: Once your designs are dry then cut out each flower.
Step 5: Assemble your flowers to string.
Using the center cutout you made with your xacto knife, now place each flower center over a bulb. I double my flowers up using one large on the bottom and a smaller one on top, creating more dimension.
And here they are!
