~Baby It's Cold Outside~ Proxxon Design Team Project!!

~Baby It's Cold Outside~
Created by Sherri Welser

Christmas is my very favorite time of the year and living in Upstate NY we have plenty of "Baby It's Cold Outside" moments! So here is a very fun and easy project to spread a little Holiday cheer and hold some favorite pairs of mittens! 


Piece of plywood ( 9 x 21 in) with 2 holes drilled and sanded using the Proxxon Delta Sander OZI/E
Letter Stencils
White crackle paint (  I used Ranger Distress Paint)
Red Clothes Pins ( or paint them yourself)
Red ink Pad (  I used Ranger "Barn Door" Distress Ink)
Gold Pen ( Signo Uniball)
Gold Paint
Ribbon for hanging
Glue Gun
Glitter glue

1) After preparing your board by sanding using the delta sander OZI/E,( light grit) paint a coat of white crackle paint and let dry. Lightly sand the board to distress it a but more.
2) Using the 'Red Barn" Distress Ink Pad lightly go around the edges of the board and across the front adding a distressed/aged look.
3) Using your stencil and red ink pad, fill in the letters of the stencil to spell out "Baby I'ts Cold Outside" ( I used my finger to apply the ink inside the letters)
4) Use the gold pen to draw some snowflakes on the clothes pins and glue to the board at the bottom with the glue gun.
5) Using the ribbon, attach to each side and add some fun paper ephemera
6)Add a little glitter glue to the top to add holiday magic to your project!
7) Add some fun gold doodles to the letters using both the gold pen and gold paint.
You now are ready to grab your favorite mittens and hang them up! 

Hope you enjoy this fun vintage style project and Happy Holidays!!
