Were back again for Waste Not Wednesday and sharing another Christmas In July projects that you can follow along and make. Even if you don’t celebrate Christmas In July its a good time to start making Christmas projects so that you don’t run out of time.

Welcome back to Waste Not Wednesday! For those who have been following along for a while, you’ll know Waste Not Wednesday as a linky party. But Leanna and I have decided to change things up a bit. Each Wednesday, we will be bringing you fun projects from us and some of our favourite bloggers. This week’s theme is all about Christmas In July!
- Scrap Wood – 26″x 9 1/4″
- Fusion Mineral Paint – Casement
- Fusion Mineral Paint – Bayberry
- Dixie Belle Chalk Mineral Paint – Voodoo Gel Stain – Tobacco Road
- Scrap material
- Dixie Belle Chalk Mineral Paint – Gator Hide Applicator Sponge
- Mister Bottle
- Meet Me Under The Mistel Toe Stencil or a stencil of your choice
Step 1 – Give your scrap piece of wood a really good sand with your sandpaper because you don’t want your paint to bleed under your stencil. Using your Mister Bottle give the wood a good spray.
Step 2 – The reason you want to spray your wood is because this helps the stain move easier over the raw wood and doesn’t allow the wood to soak in too much stain. Using your blue sponge apply the Tabacco Road Stain to your liking and let dry.
Step 3 – Burnish your stencil with an old store card or scraper and then remove the backing paper from your stencil and line up on your scrap wood making sure that you leave enough room for the embellishments at the begining of the sign. Burnish again with your store card and remove the transfer paper.
Step 4 – Pop out some Casement, Bayberry and Cranberry onto an old tile or plastic plate. Using your spouncer pounce into the paint and then off load onto a spare part of the stencil. Lightly stencil. It is better to stencil light layers than go on heavy and create bleeding under your stencil.
Step 4 – Using the end of a small paint brush aplly to the Mistle Toe to create the berries. Let dry and then using your wax brush apply wax to seal. Wrap some scrap material around the end of the sign and then some jute to embellish.
Now its time to enjoy your new sign!
