Get Your Decoupage on With Helmar

Hello! Today I want to share my altered wooden farmhouse with you. I found this little house at my local craft store. It was yelling at me from the shelf to take it home and cover it using Helmar Decoupage and Craft Paste. I obeyed and did just that.

To begin my project, I painted all of the edges of my barn a grey and allowed it to dry.I chose to use the new Storyteller collection from Crate Paper to cover my barn. After I measured and got all of my paper sizes right, I brushed on the Helmar Decoupage Paste with a large paintbrush right onto the barn. I then applied each paper onto the barn and painted another coat of Decoupage over it. I love the firm, shiny coat that it gave my project.
To add a little more detail I decorated the barn with cut out paper grass, brass brads, Spanish moss and a feathered flower. Those were all attached using Helmar Craft & Hobby PVA Glue.

Thanks for stopping by today!
