She commented that she is updating her holiday decor to the new plaid &; chalkboard trend that she’;s spotted on Pinterest.? Along with the holidays, Kim has also mentioned that she loves embroidery hoop crafts.? She saidsofa pillow cases, ”; I love embroidery hoop crafts, even though I’ve never tried needle crafting, I just love how those hoops look. They just make great frames!?”;? So lets just say she had the perfect project in mind when she saw our Holiday Stencil Collection.? After browsing the new collection, she selected our Fancy Christmas Trees Craft Stencil.

Fancy Christmas Trees Wall Art

Kim purchased embroidery hoops in various sizes. She planned to customize the hoops with the small and medium Fancy Christmas Trees Craft Stencil.? Kim placed the white duck cloth from the hoop on top of cardboard to catch any bleed that might come through the fabric.? Then she positioned the stencil on the duck cloth and used painter’;s tape to hold it in place.? Kim used a stencil brush to paint the pattern in acrylic craft paint.? She chose to vary the tree colors between charcoal grey, tartan red. After the Christmas trees were painted, Kim embellished the patterns with tiny stars using gold shiny fabric and small white pom poms. Then she set the fabric back into the embroidery hoops. And there you have it!

Kim had this to say about her stencil projects, “;Super easy and crazy cute!”;? Now to get the full tutorial and for a chance to win a free stencil, please visit Kim’;s blog,?Made In A Day.

When I was a kid growing up, my dad was the ultimate life hacker. ?If there was a way to do something more easily, he could figure it out. ?After my aunt wowed us with twice-baked potatoes for the first time (yeah, this was decades ago), he instantly converted it to a casserole recipe to keep the prep and fuss to a minimum. ?The taste is so worth cooking these potatoes twice – but hollowing out baked potatoes to make it happen is just a pain in the you-know-what.
