If you have read “About Me” you know I have bragged on my Dad’s ability to do delicate scroll work. Every year he gets creative in making Christmas decorations and ornaments so I thought I would share what he made me this year (along with a few of his other projects – see below).
The natural wood is beautiful but I wanted to add some color and sparkle so I decided to get the paint and glitter out. This is not one of his most intricate pieces but I can tell you he has to have a lot more patience than me because I learned how detailed this piece is when I started trying to paint.
The letters have two coats of Martha Stewart Blue Sky paint. I then painted the snowflakes with Martha Stewart Wedding Cake and sprinkled white glitter while the paint was still wet.
I think it turned out really cute and goes well with my snowmen collection.
I wanted to brag on my Dad a little so give him some love and leave a comment (I know he will be reading this) and tell him what you think about his artwork (not my painting)! J
Here are a few other pieces he has created.
