Description: Create a 3-foot, vintage-style, wooden Christmas tree to be displayed in your yard OR you can lean it up against an “empty” hallway wall. This craft is FULL of useful techniques you can apply to other wood crafts, dressers and end tables!

Learn how to stain “new” wood to look weathered, how to drybrush using milkpaint (yes! it’s made from milk – casein and lime!), AND how to decoupage paper napkins onto wood to get a vintage look! (Option 2 – skip the napkins and use our stencils and your favorite inspirational words!)

Project supplies include: wood, paint, napkins, and a star. It will NOT include buttons, and it will NOT include an outdoor gloss.

Inspiration taken from: finecraftguild.com, blog.silhouetteamerican.com, and random acts of kindness tags credited to Colleen Ludovice. (These are only a few pictures of the pinspiration we found, and will not exactly represent our final project.)

Description: This month we are using pinspiration from a few different sources to a create a countdown calendar (to display during the holidays or any time of the year) of daily random acts of kindness activities, just in time for the holiday season.

Project supplies include: 24 pre-cut envelopes, 24 blank tags, 24 mini clothespins, jute (for hanging), ribbon, scrapbook paper, a large variety of embellishments, pre-printed countdown numbers, bakers twine, and a pre-printed idea list of random acts of kindness (you can use for inspiration) to create EITHER a Christmas (red, green, black and white) themed OR a colorful (blue, green, pink, orange) themed set of countdown envelopes that can be pinned to the supplied jute on your mantel or wall to inspire you to practice kindness. Tags will come blank so you can personally pick which acts you like best.

Other ideas to hang include using a paneless picture frame to wrap/glue your jute around to display (like one of the inspiration ideas above), gluing the clothespins to a piece of wood, clipping the bags to a string of LED lights, or even hanging the bags from a tree branch. You can also bring your own inspirational paper and embellishments!
