Decorating houses with different crafts has always been an interesting job to do. When it comes to the wall hanging crafts, they are sure to give your house an eye capturing look. Remember your grandmother and mother weaving up different designs to make the wall hangings? Today we are going to do something similar to that. Making this wall hanging is quite easier by using the matchboxes. So, through this video, let's learn how to make this adorable wall hanging craft.


Things needed



  • Empty matchboxes
  • Glitter sheets
  • Old CD
  • Craft mirrors (round, diamond and oval shaped)
  • Beaded lace
  • pearl lace and diamond lace
  • Ice-cream sticks
  • Glitter sheets
  • Glue and cutter

Steps


  • Take around 16 matchboxes and stick them with one another forming a line of 4 matchboxes each. This gives you 4 lines of matchboxes attached to each other.

  • Now take a glitter sheet and using some glue, wrap the 4 matchbox lines using it. Use two different colors for the matchbox lines.

  • Now for decorating the matchbox lines, take stone lace with two stones and decorate the matchboxes with it covering all 4 sides of the matchbox. Similarly, design all the matchboxes using stone lace. 
  •  Decorate the center of the matchboxes using stone lace giving it a ladder like a look. Keep the matchboxes aside.

  • Now take all the four matchbox lines and some craft mirrors. Stick one craft mirror in each box made using the diamond lace. Decorate all the matchbox lines in the same way. Now surround the mirrors on the matchboxes using beaded lace and some glue.

  • Now get some ice-cream sticks. Cut a small piece of the ice-cream stick and on the support of it stick two matchbox lines such that the corners meet each other.

  • In this way, with the support of the matchsticks, make a square of the 4 decorated matchbox lines. Turn the square upside down and stick one more stick on every corner for additional support which would be visible on the corners.
