  • Add strips of painter’s tape onto the frame to make stripes.  Rub your finger over the tape to make sure that the tape is securely on the frame and has no gaps.
  • Paint inside the stripes with black paint.  Be careful not to apply the paint too thick.   Only one thin coat of paint is needed.

  • Remove painter’s tape.
  • Allow black paint to fully dry before continuing to the next step.

  • Rotate the frame and apply the tape in the opposite direction.  Make sure the tape is securely on the frame.
  • Paint additional stripes.

  • Lightly sand the frame after dry.  Sanding brings out the woodgrain and helps to hide any little imperfection.
  • Wipe the frame smooth with a clean cloth.
  • Apply the Carta Bella Christmas Market Chipboard Accents to front of frame.

The Red Buffalo Plaid Frame was made in Sue’s 2019 Holiday Workshop.

So Plaid You Came…

Thank you to everyone who came and participated in Sue’s Holiday Workshop.

This year’s plaid themed Holiday Workshop was one for the books.

Even though there were a few hiccups (like bad super glue), everyone had fun.

Some of you I only get to see once a year, which makes it feel more like my Christmas party.

I really enjoy laughing with you all and especially all the hugs.

I wish I would have gotten everyone’s picture.

Until next year!

Thank You I’m So Plaid You Came!!!
