What do I need?
Americana® Acrylics Hauser Light Green
(DA131), Lamp (Ebony) Black (DAO67), Santa

Drill and drill bits
1 Free-hand circles onto the wood slices using Snow White and let dry completely.
2 Once dry, apply vinyl stencils and paint the negative space on each stencil. Alternatively you can hand-paint your chosen wording and names.
3 Remove the stencils and add desired dots to wood slices using the handle end of a paintbrush dipped in paint. Let dry.
4 Sand each wood slice to distress. Using a drill, create holes in each slice.
5 Add baker’s twine so each slice can hang or be attached to a gift or hung on a tree.
Such wonderful, personal effects to really show your love to friends and family this Christmas. This project was first shown in our December 2017 issue, which you can still get hold of! If you want something a little more recent, you can grab our latest issue here!
