I was at Stampers Grove Craft Shop on Saturday and got some of these fab papermache stars to paint…

I have had a lot of fun painting stuff for christmas this year, and I used some of the Imagination Crafts Starlights Paints to give these stars a lovely shiny new coat..

The three colours I chose to paint them were Apple Green, Chartruese and Jade.. I love how they turned out and they will look great on the tree πŸ™‚

The Christmas Clay Vase

Hi Everyone..

Welcome to Day 11 of Blogmas!

Today I gave a clay vase that I bought a couple of years ago a bit of a festive makeover… it was looking a bit sorry for itself sitting up on the shelf in my shed.

So… I gave it a layer of Deco Art Media White Gesso, dried it with my heat gun, then gave it a lick of Captain Peacock fresco finish chalk acrylic paint from paperartsy…

I wrapped some twine around the middle, painted a balsa wood star with Deco Art Media fluid acrylic metallic gold paint and placed a few sprigs of glittery foliage into it and we are done πŸ™‚

I love making my own home decor for Christmas, makes it that wee bit special knowing its homemade…

As always thanks for popping round and if you fancy joining me tomorrow, I will have another festive project for you.
