You should have hopped here from the vary talented Cathy’s blog, if not you might want to pop on over to the Midweek Magnolia challenge and start at the top, you won’t want to miss a thing. As Christmas is coming very soon I’ve chosen some sweet Winter Tildas to create a pretty vintage Christmas table decoration::

I first painted each of the wood and chipboard pieces with 2 coats of white paint, then glued each piece together and when dry gave another coat of paint. As you can see from the finished product I did leave a few spot here and there a bit under done with the painting to give a more vintage feel.
