Scrap Wood Christmas Project Supplies:
- 7×7 Wood Squares or Scrap Wood Pieces
- Tobacco Road Voodoo Gel
- Cotton Dixie Belle Chalk Paint
- Chip Brush
- Press’n Seal
- Mistletoe Cutout
- Christmas Wishes and Mistletoe Kisses Chalk Couture Transfer
- Black Velvet Chalkology Paste
- Candy Apple Chalkology Paste
- Meadow Chalkology Paste
- Starbond Medium Instant Adhesive
- Ribbon and other embellishments
Begin by adding a layer of Tobacco Road Voodoo Gel stain to the entire surface of a wood square.
Next, lightly dry brush the color Cotton over the gel stain layer. This technique is best accomplished using a dry chip brush loaded with very little paint.
Once the dry brush layer is dry, apply another layer of Tobacco Road Voodoo Gel.
Then, add another layer of dry brushing using the color Cotton.
Now it’s time to grab the Press’n Seal!
Crumble up a piece of the Press’n Seal and load it with Tobacco Road Voodoo Gel.
Then off-load some of the paint onto a paper towel.
Next, dab the Press’n Seal around the edges as shown below.
I apply the paint a bit heavier in the corners, as to create a rounded look. I also did the outer edges.
Next, paint the mistletoe cutout using the Cotton Dixie Belle Chalk Paint and let dry.
Once dry, place the mistletoe cutout under the transfer so it lines up with the pattern.
Use the Chalkology Paste colors Black Velvet, Candy Apple and Meadow to add details to the mistletoe and wood square.
Once everything is dry, it’s time to dry fit the cutout and glue it in place.
Here’s the final product! I added a bit of ribbon to the bottom of mine to make it a little more special.
Who could you give this to this year?
