Buying and wrapping presents, food shopping I thought I had finished and was all ready for Christmas. But no! I forgot my centre piece for my table, so I have had to make it and I have just finished!
I had a piece of log in the garden brushed it all off and sprayed it with a sealer ( I didn’t wants bugs on my table lol )
I took a napkin planned for Christmas dinner and found a white candle, I got Hubby to drill me a hole for the candle, I used a sheet of thick white paper and some garden string.
I decorated the candle first, by cutting out desired pattern from the napkin, separated the layers and using only the printed piece. Then I heated up the a teaspoon and rubbed it over the napkin onto the candle, the wax melted into the napkin and set in place.
Taking my sheet of white paper, I sprayed it with stick and spray and laid the napkin onto it, then varnished it all over with a sealer and dried it with a heat tool. Then Using Heartfelt Creations Poinsettia die, cut out my flowers and shaped them with a ball tool.
Glued the garden string around the log added snow dust and glitter to the top.
Then I added my flowers, leaves and gems.
So now it matches my tablecloth and napkins, I laid up the table ready for tomorrows dinner
and now I’m off for a glass of wine
I’m sharing this coaster with you today, I made it a while ago as a sample for a make and take, I love the colours considering it start out black and white!
Using an MDF coaster and mod podge I glued in place a black and white serviette, and once it was dry I coloured in the flowers, leaves and the word ‘home’ with silko paints.
Then using various browns of distress inks I shaded around the edges.
To finish off I covered the whole coaster with triple thick gloss glaze.
Thanks for popping in
Well Christmas is nearly upon us, I have finished present shopping and wrapping, just have the dreaded food shop to fit in now.
I thought I would blog a bottle as I haven’t made one for a little while, I wanted to give it a Christmas look, and this is how it turned out.
I covered the bottle with two coats of white Gesso then painted it with white chalky paint.
I selected my serviette and tore out the bits I wanted to use then separated the tissue and glued it in place with Mod Podge.
Once dry I painted over the tissue with another coat of Mod Podge and let it dry.
I touched up with White chalky paint just around the edges of the serviette and then using a sponge, randomly dabbed on green chalky paint.
Once dry, I painted the whole bottle with a decoupage varnish.
Glued in place a Happy Christmas sentiment with Mod Podge and added a rosette with an Ivy print.
To finish off I added ribbon and a wooden tag.
Have a Merry Christmas
