Giant Christmas Gift Tag

Merry Christmas Gift Tag

The Merry Christmas sign looked like a giant tag - so when the sun was bright I added it to a large brown wrapped (stenciled with stars and trees) gift.

The Christmas stencils I ordered from Funky Junk Interiors arrived on Monday this week. Happy dance!

Supplies Used:

• Christmas themed stencils
• newspaper, masking tape, stencil sponge and 
   brushes of various sizes, rag for polishing
• painted (ASCP White) handled bread board
Fusion Fort York Red, CeCe Caldwell Springhill 
   Green chalk-like paints plus Deep Gold or Fonce
• ASCP wax - clear and dark

Stenciled using CeCe Caldwell Beckley Coal for the words and added two green trees and six red lights. Added a red layer over the  black Merry Christmas.

The sign needed something else  - so I used Deep Gold paint, smudged with my finger as I added some shading to the trees and a dab on each red light.


Sanded (sanding sponge), waxed with ASCP clear wax (with a few touches of her brown wax quickly wiped off), polished back and front.

 Finished, added decorations.

Found a short-tailed mouse at last weekend's Church Sale, too cute to leave behind.

The Merry Christmas sign
 would make a very large tag.

Thanks for dropping in to visit today.
Always look forward to visiting your posts too.
