The shabby chic style has been around for many many years, originating from Great Britain, where time worn items were showcased in most country homes. Today’s essence of shabby chic is to achieve that time worn layered vintage look from yesteryear by painting, distressing, dying or tea staining. Now we bring it to you right from our craft tables.
Please follow along as the following crafters showcase their handmade Shabby Chic Accents. Be sure to visit each blog, as each artist will be having a giveaway. Also, we have a couple of awesome sponsors who have generously donated for a “Grand Prize Giveaway”. Their shops are full of shabby goodness. To qualify, all you have to do is leave a comment on each blog.

Here is my project:
I took a glass jar from Dollar Store and wrapped lace and glued with Super Duper Helmar Glue! Added lace trim on top and scrunchy trim on the bottom. Added Fabric flower, teal fibers, pearl spray, pearl necklace(from a broken necklace) a jewel(Chef Duffs Cake Supplies) and a Handmade Pin from Patti Bond i received for RAK! It goes perfect!
