This is a beautiful Noel Plaque I have made to decorate my home with this Christmas.
The base is MDF and I got it from the MDFMan here in the UK. I have then given it a couple of coats of red acrylic paint. Once this is dry I then traced round the letters on christmas scrapbooking paper and cut these out.
Next I stuck the letters onto the main base using PVA glue, slightly over lapping these. Once this was dry I lightly sanded around the edges of the letters with a very fine grade sand paper. Then using Vintage Photo distress ink, I inked around the edges of the letters and also the main MDF base, this is to give it a more vintage feel and take that just painted look off the project.
Next I went through my crafty stash to look for suitable embellishments to finish off the project. Just using tiny jingle bells and bakers twine gives it a finished look. The wreath and candy canes are wooden embellishments which have been coloured with promarkers and finshed of with a little bit of glitter. Then to finish it all off some adhesive gems.
