For this project you will need:
- Wood Scraps ( these are from a package of scraps found at Michaels)
- Craft paint, your choice of colors. I used Martha Stewart Metallic Gold and Wedding Cake
- White glue ( Elmers or generic)
- Vinyl for lettering ( or you could stencil)
- Die Cuts
- Embellishments ( I used paper roses, washi tape and adhesive rhinestones)
Paint your wood pieces with desired base color ( mine was gold). Let dry, apply white glue and when almost dry, go over with top color ( white). If you’re impatient, use your embossing gun ( lightly) or hair dryer to speed up drying. This also helps the crackling.
I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out vinyl letters from green vinyl. I like to use transfer tape to apply lettering to get it somewhat straight.
After my letters were on, I cut a branch and holly leaves using my Cuttlebug and Tim Holtz Holly Branch die:
Getting a lot of use from this die. It’s the same one I used in my wreath makeover here. Mod Podged a branch and one leaf onto my signs and outlined the branch with iridescent glitter glue, and used red rhinestones for the berries.
I’ve gone crazy for washi tape so grabbed a roll of peppermint striped tape and put a piece on just because.
