Funky Fossil MDF Shabby Chic looking House and Stag Tag

I've been playing with some Funky Fossil MDF shapes to create this house shaped hanging decoration/tag.

I had the remains of an old paint tester pot in pale blue, so I painted the "Funky Fossil MDF Hanging Decoration" and left it to dry.

While the house shape was drying, I coated the "Funky Fossil MDF Stag shape" with PVA glue (applied with a finger), then sprinkled Cosmic Shimmer "Golden Sand" glitter over it and left it to dry.

Returning to the now dry pale blue MDF house shape, I placed a "Funky Fossil Snow Flurry Stencil" over the shape and brushed a white acrylic paint over the stencil, which left a snowflake background detail.  I set aside the piece to dry.

Once dry, I decided the blue paint looked too perfect, so I used a brown coloured Arteza Brush Pen to add a more distressed look to the edges of the house shape. 

At this stage, I decided I wanted the heart shape to look warmer, so I adhered a piece of pinky/coral coloured paper to the back of the house shape.

I then added some Lavinia Stamps "Holographic Moon Dust" over some dots of PVA glue.  While the PVA was out, I adhered the glittered stag shape on to the house too.


  1. love this decoration Sam, can imagine it hanging on my tree with all my hand made decorations

    1. Thank you. It was nice to make something different to cards. It's hanging off my craft desk at the moment. It may just have to stay there too x
