I love it when I can grab some scraps & make a project come together!
I've been hanging onto a piece of beadboard for awhile waiting for the perfect project to use it in. So when I found some antique roof tins at an antique store, and remembered that I had a bunch of rusty metal stars, I knew I had found a purpose for the beadboard.
I measured and drew off triangles on the back of the beadboard & cut them out to make Christmas trees.
I painted the beadboard with the color, Fluff, from the Dixie Belle Paint Company.
Than I added Dixie Belle's Van Dyke Glaze.
I used E6000 to glue the beadboard tree onto the roof tin.
Then I added a star to the top of the Christmas tree.
I'm thinking of making more with green trees. What do you think?

where did you find the star at and do you know what they used they used them for?ReplyDelete
Great use of recycled materials - I think green trees would be cute too!ReplyDelete

Wow, definitely a unique art piece! I pinned a few of your projects and plan to come back to look at more of your art pieces. I'm visiting from Friday Favorites Linky Party. I shared #59. Merry Christmas!ReplyDelete
Rustic, festive, elegant, love it! Featuring when my link party opens up tonight. Hope your Christmas was very merry!ReplyDelete
I love the white one with the glaze! (But I'm biased because I love Fluff!) What a great idea, I'll be pinning! Thanks for sharing with Vintage Charm. xo KathleenReplyDelete
