My Farmhouse Riser!

  With all the beautiful homemade crafts we need something to display them.  This works like a charm to display items at different levels.  Say on a shelf, tabletop or in my case my hutch.  πŸ₯° I had to decorate it the Chalk Couture way, of course.  Keep watching for the items I will display on it.  Here is the process:  My husband took some scrap wood & sanded it and rounded the corners.  I painted it with Acrylic paint, once dry I whitewashed it.  Then I waxed it.  It is ready to decorate so I used one of our background transfers 'Woven Plaid' and chalked away 🌴  Hint, hint:  We have many background transfer you could use.....including the 'Buffalo plaid' ❣️πŸƒ Here is my quick video πŸ“ΉπŸ‘ If you would like to browse, shop, subscribe or join please click the link below my bitmoji https://www.chalkcouture.com/cheriecriswell/ https://linktr.ee/cherielyne

Starting The Change Of Decorations❤️πŸ€

  Ok, it's time to change the decorations to Valentine's Day & St. Patricks.  Step by step....I have quite a few surfaces to change up LOL.  It's a fun crafting day ❣️ Whoa, so cute right?!  I love all of the sayings on my swinging sign.  I counted 7!  I also used the chalk and pull method which you can see in the video below.  I don't want all that wonderful paste to dry on the transfer before I get a chance to pull it off.  πŸ˜‰ Here are links for both surfaces. https://chalkcouture.com/cheriecriswell/shopping/addBundle/?Bundle=Sku:S203109;Quantity:1;Sku:S203103;Quantity:1; A very quick video  😊 πŸ“Ή If you would like to browse, subscribe, shop or join just click the link below my bitmoji πŸ‘‡πŸ» https://www.chalkcouture.com/cheriecriswell/ https://linktr.ee/cherielyne

Time to decorate ❣️ Isn't he cute?!  This transfer has two different nutcrackers in it.  It also has a few layers for each one.   The one I just chalked has three layers!

Let's Make Some Ornaments! A fast & Easy Project❣️ πŸŽ„

  Love ❣️   A fast & fun project.  Don't you just love when a project turns out that way ⁉️ Thank you Debbie for the idea πŸ’‘ Here are the steps I took: I used flat glass ornaments. 1. Quick shine floor finish poured inside, swirled around and drained the extra back into the bottle 2. Removed top of ornament. Took fine glitter poured inside (using a paper funnel if needed) swirl around to cover everything inside. Replaced the top. 3. Chalk with Black Velvet Paste using the transfer 'Warm Wishes Minis' and a squeegee. https://chalkcouture.com/cheriecriswell/shopping/addBundle/?Bundle=Sku:P203131;Quantity:1;Sku:B194204;Quantity:1;Sku:T183105;Quantity:1; My how to video:  πŸ“ΉπŸ‘€    If you would like to browse, shop, subscribe or join, please click the links below my bitmoji πŸ‘‡πŸ» https://www.chalkcouture.com/cheriecriswell/ https://linktr.ee/cherielyne

Christmas Door Banner ❣️ ✝️

  I wanted to get a close-up so I couldn't get it all in the picture.  There is a bow on top, which you can see in the video.  Can you tell I love the transfer 'Nativity Window'?  I have used it many times this year.  The supplies I used burlap, twine, ribbon & glitter.  The Chalk Couture supplies I used are: Nativity Window: https://www.chalkcouture.com/cheriecriswell/product/B2042206 Peace, Joy, & Christmas Cheer: https://www.chalkcouture.com/cheriecriswell/product/C2042153 I used Black Velvet, Shimmer crimson, Shimmer Gold & Shimmer Olive https://www.chalkcouture.com/cheriecriswell/products/1006 As it turned out the colors I used were not dark enough on my  surface so I ended up putting glitter on it. ✨ My how to video πŸ‘€ πŸ“Ή If you would like to browse, shop, subscribe or join please click the links below my bitmoji πŸ‘‡πŸ» https://www.chalkcouture.com/cheriecriswell https://linktr.ee/cherielyne

The Grinch πŸŽ„

I got this so very cute idea from another designer, Brenda Renyer.  Thank you❣️  Seriously how cute is this⁉️  I used our transfer 'Santa, I Can Explain'.  It is on my online shop under Last Chance.  So if you want it you better get it soon.  πŸ˜‰  Just sayin.   Usually I make my 3D items with my scroll saw.  But I was thinking there was probably  a lot of people who don't have one, so this time I drew it on a form core board and cut  it out with a craft knife.  As I was doing the voice over, I realized I did not put the fur on  the Grinch sleeve.  So armed with a glue gun I glued it onto the arm.  (being careful not  to glue onto the board because I probably will change it up laterπŸ˜‰) My supplies: Transfer - 'Santa, I can explain'    https://www.chalkcouture.com/cheriecriswell/product/C193142 Greyson White Frame Chalkboard https://www.chalkcouture.com/cheriecriswell/product/S183110 My Video  πŸ“Ή πŸ‘€ If you would like to browse, shop, subscribe or join please click the
