Let’s get started!
Alright, step number one to recreate Carol’s super cute Christmas Gift Bag Decoupage DIY is to trace the shape of the Dollar Tree Wood Circle sign onto the gift bag and cut the design out.
Make sure you center the wood sign over the portion of the gift bag that you want to decoupage!
Mod Podge is the key to decoupaging! Apply a coat of Mod Podge to the back of the Dollar Tree wood sign and place the gift bag cutout onto it.
I like to use a rolling pin to smooth out any wrinkles or creases. If you’re worried about it tearing the bag, just lay a piece of plastic wrap over the project then use the rolling pin.
Add some detailing
Once the Mod Podge has dried, you can start adding the detailing! To use the Dollar Tree Mop Head, you’re going to need to remove the plastic part. Carol Craftskins used some aviation snips and just broke the plastic piece off.
Next, she hot-glued mop strings around the edges of the wood sign. This helps cover up any jagged edges you may have had when you were cutting the Dollar Tree gift bag.
I LOVE using half wood beads to add some embellishment to my DIY crafts, and so does Carol Craftskins! You can use as many or few as you want, but just hot glue them into place!
Carol placed her half wood beads evenly spaced around the outer edge of the wood sign.
The Dollar Tree gift bag already had a bow printed on it, but Carol Craftskins wanted this Christmas DIY to be more dimensional
So, she created a little messy bow from the buffalo check ribbon and hot glued it on top of the printed bow. She didn’t completely cover the printed bow, though.
To make the messy bow, just cut several strips of the buffalo check ribbon and lay them in an x-shape. Next, secure the center with some jute twine!
You could use multiple ribbon patterns as I did for this craft: Dollar Tree Shabby Farmhouse Christmas Sign DIY.
The finishing touches
All that is left to do is make and attach the hanger! To make the hanger for this super cute decoupage DIY, Carol Craftskins threaded some wood beads onto jute twine.
She used a drill to make a hole at the top of the wood sign and put the end of the twine through it.
If you don’t have access to a drill, you could always hot glue the end of the twine to the back of the Christmas sign. Finally, tie the keyring to the top end of the twine hanger.
