Glittery Unicorn Shaker Home Decor

Glittery Unicorn Shaker Home Decor

 

Hello crafty friends.  Jennifer Snyder here sharing a glittery, sparkly, magical  unicorn shaker shadow box.  If you scroll down, I share how I made this unique unicorn home decor piece.
The features shaker piece was created using Creative Embellishments  – Baby ATC Set.  The cool thing about these ATC’s is that Creative Embellishments has made it super easy to transform them into fabulous shakers with the Coin Ring and Shaker Acrylic Pieces .

The inspiration for the magical home decor piece was the unicorn Christmas ornament snagged from the clearance section at Hobby Lobby.  I saw the ornament on clearance and and tossed it into my cart.  Actually I bought the last two.  I couldn’t leave one unicorn all alone (especially for the eye popping clearance price).
Next I saw a pink glittery picture frame also in clearance and tossed it in my cart.

 

As I mentioned above, the moon and stars shaker was made using Creative Embellishments  – Baby ATC Set and the shaker adaptor rings – the Coin Ring and Shaker Acrylic Pieces .  For this particular piece, I wanted the shaker to be totally see-through so I used two acrylic windows for the shaker – no worries since six acrylic windows come in the adaptor set.
  I think the transparent effect is charming and perfect for my magical themed project.
The chipboard pieces were painted white, assembled and filled with shaker mix from Buttons Galore and More, then the edges finished with white tulle.

 

This piece has been bedazzled for sure – exactly what I’d expect from a unicorn.
The “Believe in Magic” words were printed on my computer and attached to the finished piece using gel medium.

 

 

Here’s how I created this piece:  
1. The back of the picture frame was removed and replaced with silver glitter cardstock.  I slathered a generous amount of heavy body gel on the glitter cardstock.  
2. I poured glittery shaker mix from Buttons and Galore over the gel medium, making sure there was a thick covering and let dry.  

 

3. The back of the picture frame was removed and two eye hooks were screwed into the wooden frame – one near the head and one eye hook at the tail , enabling me to secure the unicorn in place with wire.   After the unicorn was set into place and wired securely, I could finish assembling the shadow box.    
It looks very complex when assembled but it was actually a simple piece to create and gussy up into something unique and  befitting a unicorn.
Thanks for stopping here.  Happy crafting.
