More Christmas Stuff

Please see the blog giveaway below:

So, I have had these pictures from A Mary Engelbreit calender for a long LONG time. At least 7 years. So when I went to the Dollar Tree and found these wood plaques, I knew exactly how I could use them....


Plaques from Dollar Tree

I painted them each with black craft paint. Each plaque needed 3 coats. I'm not sure I had the best paint so just paint to your desired coverage.

After 1 coat

After 2 coats

After letting the paint dry overnight, I attached the pictures with some stick glue and then modged podged over the paper. You can use your desired finish. I used a mat finish....When Christmas rolls around again I plan on hanging them together on another piece of finished wood where I can transfer out the plaques based on the holiday.... just haven't gotten that far yet...
