Yes, it's true Halloween is barely on our heels and I'm already talking Christmas. I can't help it, I'm super excited! This season I've partnered with some of Canada's best DIY bloggers for a fun series called Modern Holiday Home where we each share a fun holiday project each week for five weeks.
This week, we're partnering with Therm-O-Web to take on some projects with Deco Foil! You can find all of our projects linked at the bottom of this post AND we're partnering on a sweet Deco Foil Giveaway so be sure to enter.
DIY Gold Foil Christmas Tote
In thinking about my project I knew I wanted to make a DIY Christmas gift. I found this awesome felt tote at the dollar store and I thought it would make the perfect Christmas bag or gift bag. I used Therm-O-Web gold Deco Foils and their liquid adhesive to create this unique Christmas gift.
Step One: Pick a design (either free hand or use a stencil). I free handed this design and I love it. The adhesive comes out of the tub evenly so I didn't have to worry about clumps.
Step Two: Let it dry until the adhesive is transparent (seriously, waiting was the hardest part of this project). If you make your lines thick you will need to wait longer.
Step Three: Place the Deco Foil colour side up and press it down with your finger or nail. Pull off the foil and repeat the beginning of this step if you missed a spot. It's that easy.
Be sure to check out the other bloggers in the Modern Holiday Home series; Colleen from Lemon Thistle made some beautiful holiday gift tags, Thalita from The Learner Observer made some gorgeous metallic foil napkins, Lindi from Love Create Celebrate create an amazing Noel sign and Gemma from The Sweetest Digs made a lovely gold foil pillow.
