As today starts the countdown to Christmas I thought I would share with you this Christmas door hanger to hopefully put you in the mood!
There are a number of styles of door hanger to choose from and as they are so sturdily made I think they will make for a decoration which can be brought out year after year.
I decided to keep the embellishments to a minimum in order not to swamp the beautiful sentiment.
The hanger was first painted with brown paint and then I used DecoArt Crackle Paint over the top - it really gives such a beautiful finish. A little ink blended around the edges gives it a rustic feel.
The beautiful sentiment was painted in Gold acrylic paint.
I love these holly leaves and use them a lot in my projects throughout the year! I love just dabbing them with some white acrylic paint and letting some of the brown of the mdf show through.
A few Christmas style flowers which I have edged with gesso and some gold paint.
A lovely vintage decoration for our old Manse house here in Shetland, although I also think it would make a lovely Christmas present as well.
Thank you so much for joining me today!
