Guest post Decor in a snap

Here is a Diwali guest post from Sujatha of Snap decor

This Diwali why not we go green and gold?  Reuse boxes and turn them into decor pieces using gold wire and some fancy beads. Here is how.. To start with, wrap the boxes in some nice paper. I use two types of gift wrapping paper, a brown one with gold block print and over it, a patterned tissue paper. To stick the paper use  mixture of fevicol or similar adhesive mixed with water. This is as good as decoupage medium. Let dry overnight. Then use some gold wire like I have shown (available in all craft and fancy stores) to decorate. This wire can be cut easily with ordinary scissors. Using a simple design template like I have done cut bits of wire, shape them and stick them with glue such as fevibond or dendrite. Finally add the fancy beads and stick them with the same glue. Let dry completely. Since this is handmade, it is okay if the design is not perfectly symmetrical. It just adds to the charm of handmade things.
You could spray varnish over the box and let dry overnight or better bonding and longer lasting effect.
