Nativity plank art

this is another project that is a long time coming... almost a year in fact. It also took me about 3 hours longer to finsh than it should have cos I had to do it in Nap times :)

I saw this


on pinterest last year and immediately wanted on. For those of you who don't know me well I LOVE Christmas and all it brings :) I have Christmas d├ęcor stashed all over the place and knew this was the perfect addition.

I contacted Judith from Trendy Walls who you might remember from my post about our Mirror and sent her the picture and she made me the stickers I needed...


In all fairness I did try and finsh this when the stickers arrived but we were building and staying with my inlaws so crafting space was limited (and I couldnt figure out how to get a plank and bought a canvas that was way to small so the stickers just went back into a box)..

While Cleaning up our garage a few weeks ago I found a plank left over from when my dad added a shelf to our kitchen Island that was the perfect size

After painting it red like my inspiration picture we were good to go


I'm beyond pleased with the results!!




roll on Christmas :)
