Trying to stay ahead of the game by introducing new crafts I recently ordered these cute trees from The Wood Connection.  They have the cutest wood cutouts that you can purchase and then paint and decorate to suit your own taste.  Hopefully these will be good sellers at my bazaar this year. 

For these trees I painted them with Apple Barrel (21463 Antique Parchment) paint.  In order to get the glitter to stick you paint the front surface and while the paint is wet you lay it directly on glitter that has been spread out on a cookie sheet or piece of wax paper then let them air dry.

I found this idea (HERE) from Pinterest, of course.  Simple to make with clothes pins, paint and embellishments.
I am really liking the chalkboard look and some of the lyrics from Christmas songs make the best sayings to use.
I will be posting more photo's as I get more projects finished.
