Good morning!!! Today I am sharing my St Nicholas Advent Tree; it won’t be long before the count down happens.

Begin by painting the pieces of Advent Tree; dry. Lay stencil on prepared pieces; apply gesso to each piece. Allow everything to dry. Paint with layers of paint going from lightest to dark. Drying between layers.

Repeat until you achieve the look you want with the paints. Dry. Lay second stencil to the top of pieces and apply paste with palette knife. Dry. Stamp background image on to pieces with black paint; dry.

Cut chipboard to form base. (Contact Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Store to get price.) Tape together to hold shape as you apply paper to top and sides.

Adding borders strips that have been scored to the top and sides will support the box.

Adhere prepared base to top of prepared stand.

Emboss “Days Until Christmas” with embossing powder.

Emboss Flourished Deer with embossing powder. 

 Apply lustre to the Flourished Deer and “Days Until Christmas”.

Paint numbers and adhere to front of prepared pieces.

Add two prepared numbers to the front of the advent tree with twine.

Adhere Flourished Deer  to each side of advent tree base.

along with berries, pinecones….

ribbon.

Adhere a premade Santa or other piece to the base.

Adhere prepared “Days Until Christmas” to the front of stand.
