Dé­coupage door art

Project Calm - - Contents -

Craft knife at the ready! Recre­ate the beauty of dec­o­ra­tive Euro­pean doors in pa­per with our spe­cial pull- out 3D project. It makes a won­der­ful gift when framed for a friend go­ing on new ad­ven­tures, or keep it for your­self and style it up on your pret­ti­est shelf.

Step 1

Care­fully cut out the three door lay­ers from the pull-out sheet, with layer 1 be­ing the top layer. Us­ing a sharp scalpel, cut any white parts away to re­veal the door parts and smaller dec­o­ra­tive pieces. Cut out the aper­tures rep­re­sent­ing glass win­dows.

Step 3

Line up your lay­ers on top of each other as pre­cisely as you can to get a neat 3D ef­fect. Add the fin­ish­ing touches of the lit­tle door­knob, dec­o­ra­tive mould­ings on the door, and choose a num­ber to stick to the top.

Step 2

Build up your door, stick­ing the lay­ers to­gether us­ing a mix­ture of dou­ble-sided tape and foam pads to give a 3D ap­pear­ance. Us­ing the scalpel, cut out the three lay­ers of plant pots and fo­liage. Layer with foam pads and at­tach them to each side of the door.

Step 4

us­ing the com­pleted door dé­coupage as a guide, cut out a piece of the blue tile pat­terned pa­per. Us­ing foam pads, at­tach the door to the pa­per back­ground, as shown in the main pho­to­graph on the op­po­site page.
