Let it Snow!

The fabulous people at Plaid sent me a the most amazing box of paint goodies from the Martha Stewart craft line. Wouldn’t you be excited if this showed up on your doorstep?!

I made a few projects but I LOVED this one. A canvas to put on my fireplace.

Want to make it too?

What you need:

Snowflake Stencil 

Martha Stewart Glitter Finish

Martha Stewart Dauber Set

Martha Stewart Paints  (colors used: Pool, Couscous, and Wedding Cake)

Hot Glue Gun

Burlap

Scrapbook Paper

Ribbon

Canvas

‘Snow’ Bunting

The how-to:

1. Using the daubers, place dots all over the canvas (I mixed the yellow & blue with the white to get varying shades of each). Let dry.

My 5 year old daughter helped me with this step :)

2. Using the small snowflake stencil, paint snowflakes onto the bigger dots.

3. The colors were a bit too vivid for me, so I covered the entire canvas in a 10:1 mixture of glitter finish and ‘wedding cake’ paint.

4. Next, I mod-podged scrapbook paper onto the bottom {In hind-sight I would have NOT painted that portion. I had to sand off the paint to make sure the scrapbook paper went on smoothly}.

5. Hot glue burlap, ribbon, and bunting ‘SNOW’ letters as shown.

So, what do you think? Cute, eh?
