(1 Votes)


There's no need to invest in expensive works when you can create your own simple wall art crafts. Embossed Foil Wall Art is a colorful project that you'll love to show off. The rough texture gives the piece a one-of-a-kind, old-world look and feel.



  • Spellbinders Grand Calibur machine with Grand Raspberry plate
  • Spellbinders Premium Craft Foils
  • Spellbinders 3D M-Bossabilities embossing folders
  • 11″ X 14″ wood art panel
  • White gesso paint

  • Iridescent acrylic medium
  • Paint brush, sea sponge
  • Sanding block
  • Metal wire (thin gauge)

  1. Paint wood panel (top and sides) with one coat of white gesso; let dry.
  2. Paint over the gesso with one coat of silver blended with iridescent medium (approx. 3 parts medium to 1 part paint); let dry.
  3. Dab more silver paint over wood panel with sea sponge to create texture; let dry.
  4. Trim and emboss twelve 3-1/4″ squares of foil in desired colors with Basket Weave embossing folder. Lightly sand the top of each square to highlight the texture.
  5. Punch holes in each corner of all 12 squares and insert brads, then distress the squares lightly with a sanding block.
  6. Gently wrap some of the squares with metal wire  (a 25″ length will go around one square 4 times).
  7. Arrange the squares evenly on the wood panel and adhere in place with 5 glue dots (one in each corner plus one in the center).
  8. Emboss a darker contrasting foil using the Shell Beauty embossing folder, then punch out 12 circles from the detailed areas. Sand the circles lightly to highlight the texture.
  9. Glue one circle to each square on the panel with contact adhesive, let dry.
  10. Use a hammer and small nail to make starter holes in the wood panel at the bottom of each circle, then twist in a screw eye.
  11. Use jewelry pliers to attach a metal stamped tag to each screw eye with a jump ring.
