Sand the front and back of your surface. Tape off the section above and below the middle band, right along the inside of the etched lines. Make sure to rub the edges down good next to the side that you will be painting. Paint the top and lower portion Santa Red. Let dry and sand again. With a damp cloth wipe off any dust, then apply another coat of Santa Red, this may take two to three coats, depends on your preference. Remove tape and let dry. Tape off the edges for the middle band making sure to press down good along the grooved edge. Paint the band Antique White. Let dry, sand, wipe off dust, and paint another coat of Antique White, again this may take two to three coats. Carefully remove tape. Let dry. Once dry, take your Paint Pouncer and Snow White and tap the paint onto the snowflake stencil, make sure to cover the entire stamp quickly but make sure to not overload the stamp. Then turn your ornament over and place the painted side down on the stamp and press and rub…make sure to not move the wood piece. Then slowly lift off of the stamp. Let dry. Shade around all edges of the red sections and above and below the center band with Black Plum. Shade the middle band around all edges with Antique White. Lay your stencil with the word “Believe” over the center band and center it. With your Deerfoot brush and Santa Red, go over your stencil with enough paint for a good coverage, but not too much paint to make it run under your stencil. I found using my ¼” Deerfoot to be the best in this space. While the lettering is drying, carefully paint the crown of the ornament with Vintage Brass. I did two coats because I really wanted it to shine.

When dry, spray with your favorite varnish.

Finishing Touches:
From the Christmas Wood Shapes kit, take one of the holly shapes. Paint the leaves Avocado and the berries Country Red. Add Sizzling Red Glamour Dust to the berries and Emerald to the leaves. Using your hot glue gun, glue a small section of Canadian pine where the crown and ornament meet. I wrapped a small section around each edge to really secure it in place. Glue the wooden holly leaves and some red berries to the greenery. Add Baker’s Twine for a fun festive touch for hanging.
