We need: one piece of plywood 38 x 56 x 1 cm, sturdy paper for the stencil, star template, scissors, pencil, brush, small paint roller, white wall paint, grey chalkboard paint (or crafting paint), sandpaper or sanding sponge, masking tape, adhesive pads, transparent hooks, ribbon, bough and cones for decoration.
Display Board for Christmas Cards
Greetings from friends, messages from the Santa and a Christmas bough with silver-painted pine cones make this hand-crafted board into a festive work of art.
How it's done:
Cut out a stencil from the sturdy paper according to the template. Prime the wooden board with the white paint and use the stencil to trace the star approx. 3 cm from the edge.
Tape along the contours of the star with masking tape. It's helpful to cut the ends of the tape diagonally and place them in the inner corners.
Paint the star with chalkboard paint.
After drying, peel off the masking tape.
For a vintage look, lightly sand the edges.
Apply the Powerstrip® on the middle top of the board.
Then attach the transparent hooks for the bough.
Fasten the Christmas cards with adhesive pads.
Decorate your living room with this hand-crafted board!
