DIY Christmas Van and Christmas Trees


kerst

A van to pimp yourself!

You can of course make a nice Christmas decoration yourself! For example, from a papier-mache van and a set of papier-mache cones. Decorate them as you like and you will soon have an atmospheric scene for the Christmas tree or on the Christmas table.


We pasted the cones with red and white Décopatch paper and then wrapped with a piece of graceful band. The van wanted to be painted, but he also wanted to be covered with paper. That's why we simply combined it!


Below you can see a little, how we worked. I say “work”, but it doesn't feel like that! Decopatching and painting, it's a really nice hobby that you too will get a lot of fun. Haven't you ever tried it? Then we definitely recommend it, to do it once. Being creative is relaxing, fun to do together and it's even more fun when the result is great!

The van is first painted with Viva Decor Maya paint blue. That's a really nice opaque and shiny paint. It's in a small jar, but the paint is very economical in use.

View HERE all possible colors of the Maya paint, which one do you choose?

You paint the top white, as soon as it is dry you can glue it in (with Decopatch glue) and sprinkle fake snow on it. Tip: Place a piece of paper underneath, so that you can easily put the snow that falls next to it back into the jar.

Stick the cones with pieces of torn Decopatch paper and Decopatch glue. First, glue the surface thinly, glue the paper overlapping over each other and move over the paper with the same brush. This way the paper immediately gets a beautiful layer of lacquer!

Decorate the van and cones with ribbons ( Pom Ribbon ) and Pearl Dot Pens black and silver (for the wheels). And ready is your Christmas decoration again!
