Holiday Wishing Well by Deanna M
As you can see, I decided to decorate mine up for Christmas. First I painted all the areas I wasn't going to cover with paper with my Bottle Green Adirondack Paint Dabber. I then traced around my pieces onto my patterned paper and attached them to the wooden pieces with some Matte Glue N Seal. I really like this adhesive and find it doesn't wrinkle my paper like some of the other products out there. Once I had all my pieces covered with paper I sprayed them all with some Gold and Silver Glitter Dust. WOW! Do they sparkle, love it.
Beacon 3 in 1 Glue and the tabs to help secure the pieces together. I really like this glue thought it can be a bit stringy. It is my go to glue with nothing else will work, like when I am glue wood, or metal pieces. It is a thick clear glue and dries clear. I added some Cabbage Glitter Tape (just ask and Kim and order this for you) along the edge of the roof peak and the top and bottom of each side. Finally I hot glued a few small roses to each side of the well.
It was a lot of fun to do and really quick and easy. I know Kim can special order one for you if you are interested.
