Guest Blogger & Christmas Friends

Recently, Plaid Enterprises, a favorite crafting company, asked me to feature one of my wood craft projects on their blog Paint Me Plaid. I was thrilled for the opportunity! Plaid’s core brand of crafting products are known for their high-quality and versatility (my two favorites are their FolkArt paint and Mod Podge, which I use constantly). The project I chose was my Christmas Friends Unfinished Wood Kit. I show step-by-step on how to craft these cute little guys. So, if you want to see me in action, click here.
Which brings me to something I have wanted to mention for a while. There are always 2 finishing techniques you can use when making any of my wood crafts: paper or paint. On my website, I only have a purchase option for the supply kit for the paper finishing technique. However, paint gives a beautiful finish as well. Here is an example of me using paint to finish the santa of my Christmas Friends wood craft:
Here is what my Christmas Friends look like when finished with paint.
Don't be intimidated! Paint is actually quite easy to do. If this is something you would like to try, only purchase the unfinished wood of your desired wood craft. Then, buy the painting supplies separately.  I outline all the details for my Christmas Friends on the blog post here. Please comment if you have any questions or would like more information. Thank you Plaid Enterprises for letting me share on your blog!
