Christmas Gifts for Family
Thanks to Mandy I have used her idea to create these

They are simple to make
Get El-cheapo wooden frames
remove glass
paint it in a colour that tones with your back ground PP
apply crackle glaze
apply top coat of paint I have chosen a cream colour to give the frames a shabby chic look
cut your back ground PP to fit in frame
place buttons on in a tree shape
it may take a bit of fiddling to get them in the right place
cut a pot for tree to sit in and a star to go on top
embellish pot and star with ribbon glitter etc
When you are happy with how it all looks
stick it down
I have used foam tape on the pots and stars to give them some dimension
put your finished creation in the frame

Now you have a beautiful Christmas Decoration to keep or give away

For my niece and husband

For my sister inlaw and brother inlaw

for my nephew and partner
