Western Tapestry Caddy

When a friend shared this little caddy that her brother made, I had to have some! I knew they'd be perfect for some of the classes that I teach at Junk Mama's General Store.

There are so many options for transforming this blank "canvas". For the first one, I started off painting it with the color Caviar from the Dixie Belle Paint Company. 

Once the paint was dry, I added the Western Tapestry transfer from re*design With Prima, to the front & back of the caddy.


I then painted three small jars with the color Honky Tonk Red.


To accentuate the detail on the jars & age them a little, I added Black Gilding Wax. I simply rubbed it on with my finger.


The jars fit perfectly in the caddy.


There are so many things I can use the caddy & jars for... flowers, pens, pencils, paint brushes, etc. I entertain quite a bit, & the jars are perfect for silverware!


For another caddy, I added my favorite decoupage rice paper from the Dixie Belle Paint Company, Pallet Wood Pattern...

  
I used the Pallet Wood Pattern rice paper while teaching a class for a group of 13 ladies at a church in a neighboring town.
The paper is somewhat sheer & each caddy looked completely different depending on the paint color used...




Have you tried transfers and/or decoupage rice paper? Both are easy to use & add a beautiful design element to your projects.
