Fall in New England

ALWAYS 
spectacular!!


It's thyme to change
 SEASONS

do a little seasonal decorating
inside and out

maybe even sneak in a bike ride!!




Step into

STUDIO

Let's Paint

I cut my shapes from 1/4 " wood
I did 
not
  PREP 
my pieces 
as
 I wanted them to have a primitive look

I use
  graphite paper 
to transfer face details then paint




I use 
Lowell Cornell Fine Line Writing Pen
to
 add the blanket stitch detail

Depending 
on the 
finished "look 
you want
you can varnish these
 with



I have used
ICE CRYSTAL
to give them a 
SPARKLE
finish

Or
for a more primitive look
you can stain them with any of the


then spray lightly 
with




After they have dried well drill holes as indicated in the pattern
and
attach your twine


Tear coordinating strips of fabric into strips
and 
tie to cover your twine


You can make your GARLAND any length you want! 




OR
You can even drill holes in the tops 
and 
add rusty wire to  hang the ornies 
on 
your
HALLOWEEN tree



DecoArt
