As soon as I spotted the sweet polka dotted deer over at Torie Jayne, I was completely smitten. As you know, I love to incorporate a bit of Japanese Washi Tape into my projects, and loved the idea of covering a wooden deer silhouette with washi tape to match our 2011 Christmas colour scheme of Red and Aqua. Unfortunately Panduro Hobby don’t export to Australia unless you have a order over 1200 SEK. Not to be deterred, I remembered a white painted deer that I have in my Christmas decorations (purchased from Adairs a few Chrsitmas’ ago).
Some red and white polka dotted washi tape, some aqua ribbon, and a glittered aqua bell, and the deer ornament has a new lease of life! The best thing about the project is the washi tape should peel off without damaging the paint so I can redecorate it next year to fit the theme.
