Painting A Farmhouse Christmas with Perfect Paints!
For those that know me, they know that I have become a serious homesteader this past year. My home is decorated in an Industrial Farmhouse Christmas theme. When I ran across this fun little farm truck at the dollar store, I could not resist. With Perfect Paints shimmering acrylic paints, I knew I could create my favorite little red farm truck with a Christmas theme.
Supplies Used: Perfect Paints: Shimmering Acrylic Paints
49 & Market Christmas Spectacular Ephemera
Scrapbook Adhesives foam squares Paint Brush
Paint the surface of the Dollar Store metal farmhouse truck with Perfect Paints Red Wagon shimmering acrylic paint thinly so it will dry quick. You will need to do several thin coats, allowing each layer to dry thoroughly, we will be painting the tires and window next.
Now we want to paint the tires and window with the Perfect Paints Shadow Shimmering Acrylic paint to create the tire and window look.
Once it is all dry, using the edge of a metal rod-type tool, scrape very lightly along the edges to remove the paint to create dimension, giving it a distressed look.
Cut up various pieces of the 49 & Market Christmas Spectacular Ephemera pieces and fussy cut the Christmas Tree. Add various sayings and ephemera pieces to create the box look for the bed of the truck, and use foam squares to attach the final piece to the bed of the truck.
Fun tidbit: I used the packaging to create the custom-wrapped package. Cut a ticket in three strips, using two glue on the front to create the ribbon look.
Now I have a fun little farmhouse holiday-themed decor piece for my home. I hope you give this a try and share with us what you create. ~ Candy
