Introduction Hi again crafters I hope I find you ready for Christmas... I say this knowing full well I will not be ready at all I used to worry about this but have now accepted it’s going to happen and I’m pretty sure I will definitely have something I have forgotten about. Let the panic begin. For this month’s article. I decided to work with the wonderful MDF medium density fibre board pallet art set from Stamps Away which has been so popular on Create and Craft. It’s design a very simple work with. Christmas is a great time to make home decorations that are pretty and can be used year after year and it’s even better if they are functional. 2

Introduction Here I have combined my MDF slats with chalkboard paint I used Pinflair’ Blackboard Paint for a wonderful piece of home décor. The beauty of the chalkboard paint is the fact you can wipe it clean and write over and over again just like magic The kit can be used in so many configurations and you do not need special glue or tools to put it together. The first piece is quite large making I perfect card for your Christmas reminders to-do lists and more. Have fun 3

What you need to do Step 1 After the slats are completely dry you can then glue them together using the Cosmic Shimmer PVA with thinner slats attached at the back to make the piece sturdy and secure. Step 2 In your pallet set you will have larger pieces and smaller pieces. For this design I used four of the larger slats. First you’ll need to paint all sides which would be visible using the chalkboard paint. Allow to dry and then give them a second coat. . Step 3 Now it’s time to choose your decorations I adore the Heartfelt Creations papers and found it quite difficult to decide which ones to use. When selecting papers I wanted something I could easily fussy-cut and turn into toppers. I used the large baubles and holly. Don’t worry too much about cutting out the detail– just take away enough so you emphasise the main images. I also cut out some of the poinsettias the two doves and two of the sentiments. 5

What you need to do Step 4 Next cut out some of the background papers. I cut out two strips one for the top and one for the bottom. I layered them onto a piece of red card and then glued them onto the pallet. Step 5 Glue the baubles onto the top left hand corner. Arrange the other elements in the bottom right hand corner. I layered one of the sentiments onto a piece of red card and then onto a piece of green card . Allow them to overlap to create a cluster of images This overlap to create a cluster of images. This also helps if some of the images aren’t complete as it gives you more scope Step 6 Using the bow maker make a three-looped bow from gold organza ribbon to attach at the bottom of the pallet. The bow maker is such a fantastic tool and allows you to create these really stunning bows with ease. 6

What you need to do Step 7 Now run a length of the ribbon around the top of the pallet and tie in a bow over the top of the baubles. Use the baker’s twine to tie another bow and glue this over the top of the organza ribbon bow using the Cosmic Shimmer PVA glue. Step 8 Add Glossy Accents to the berries and Liquid Pearls to the poinsettia to finish. 7

Leonie ’s expert advice help you get started.  Apply the chalkboard paint with a brush in long strokes for even coverage.  Your chalkboard paint can be painted directly onto walls as well. This can be great fun for kids’ rooms but it’s completely the kind of wall I’d appreciate too  The MDF pallets are great to use as single slats on their own which are big enough to make a statement piece. Combine them with plain notebooks blank calendars mirrors key hooks – the possibilities are endless  MDF is great for creating things with the kids as it’s sturdy and cost effective and will take a wide variety of paints and glues.  Use your Christmas chalkboards for to-do lists cooking schedules menus festive greetings guest lists naughty and nice lists letters to Father Christmas ... there are so many possibilities that are both fun and practical 8

how you can use the slats To demonstrate how you can use the slats in a different way I have also done an alternative piece for you. This is made using just two of the larger slats with a piece of thick card at the back to provide extra support. I used the thick baker’s twine to thread through the holes and hang the chalk paint creation. I think this smaller one would be great for writing messages and cute ‘This Way Santa’ wall hangings. Use the papers sentiments and tags to complete your hanging. These are very easy to do and yet they look really effective. 9
