Rice Paper Christmas decor

Hello crafters, 

I am back again for a 2nd Country View Challenge inspiration make, where the theme is "Christmas". I have upcycled a coffee jar again for another Christmas table centre piece. Warning this a photo heavy post... 

I used 2 of the postcards from the Stamperia  All Around Christmas Rice Paper (DFSA4808) and scraps of translucent paper with inclusions (at least 20 years old...). I applied the DecoArt Decoupage matte medium to the glass, smoothed the rice paper down and applied a layer of medium on top of the paper as well. 



 That layer allowed me to add some white Distress crayon on the mistletoe berries to make them pop.   I used a silicone tip to smooth the crayon. I couldn't resist adding some light touches of Distress crayon on the leaves and the bells.   On the tree side I added Enamel accents on the tree, here and there, 

Distress crayon on the bells and liquid glass on the baubles.

On the top of the jar I applied gel medium and dusted both glitter and Glamour Sparkle for a frosty effect. 
Some twine and a snowflake pendant serves as finishing touch.

Do click on the photos to get a closer look.

Some photos at night...

  1. Quelle belle idée !!! Ton pot est superbe !!
    Cela fait très longtemps que je veux en faire moi aussi... Mais je n'arrive jamais à trouver du temps pour moi, maintenant. Peut-être pendant les fêtes, il faut que je garde ça en tête ;-)

  2. Your lantern looks very pretty - especially seeing it in the dark with it's lights on. Love all your photos of how you made it too. I'm hoping to get a few minutes to have a go before Christmas arrives. Thanks for sharing with us at Creative Artiste Mixed Media.

  3. How pretty this creation is Christine full of the joys of the season. It glows with such warmth when lite, beautifully embellished.
    Thank you for sharing @ Creative Artiste and joining our 100 challenge.
    Best wishes, Happy Christmas and all the best for 2024. Tracey (DT)
