Get Creative This Christmas!
This week we bring you some ideas for how to bling up your baubles and tart up tatty decorations ready for the festive season! You can tailor and tweak the colour scheme and finishes to your own preference making your decorations unique to your home!
How fun is this Santa themed centre piece? It's made using an old paint can (something we all have plenty of!), Dixie Belle Paints in Barn Red as the base, tape is painted with Caviar for the belt, and the buckle and buttons are painted in Gold Digger and Fluff. You could use different colours to make snowmen and elves! Or paint metallic stars on a chalk paint base - so many possibilities. This crafty idea recycles old paint cans and is a fab way for the kids to make their own centre pieces!  
Decoupage Decs!
Autentico Decoupage Glue is just the stuff you need to get started with decoupaging decorations. You don't need special decoupage paper - you can use your favourite Christmas wrapping paper instead! This is another one to get the kids involved with if you want to keep them entertained!
Decoupage ornaments, old candlestick holders, Christmas boxes, - whatever takes your fancy! You could even decoupage some lovely gift tags for loved ones to have as a keepsake.

Mad for Metallics!
Metallics are always a fave at Christmas! We stock lots of different metallics - Autentico Metallico, Dixie Belle's Moonshine Metallics, Posh Chalk Pigments and Pastes, and Autentico Metallic Leaf, meeting all your metallic needs! And don't forget, soon we will be stocking the new Dixie Belle Gemstone Mousse! 
Make shiny baubles or add some sparkle to a picture frame pressie! The baubles in the pic were made by pouring a few drops of metallic paint into clear plastic baubles and swirling it around until they were fully coated. Simple but effective!

Magic Mouldings!
WoodUBend mouldings are fab for adding detail to your furniture - and amazing at adding 3D detail to your decorations! Heat them up and they become flexible and can be easily bent to the desired shape. 
Get creative with decorative mouldings - I've seen people apply them to baubles and when they're painted they look so fancy! We have easy to use instructions for WoodUBend on the website.

Sideboard Chic!
How sleek is this black and gold sideboard from Facebook Group member Tracy Watson? Tracy painted the sideboard in Coal Black from Fusion Mineral Paint and used Posh Chalk Pigment in Byzantine Gold mixed with General Finishes High Performance Top Coat (Varnish) in Gloss to paint the gold detailing - top tip, Tracy! This was the first time she had used Posh Chalk Pigments and she was impressed! She said they're 'easy to use and really shiny' which appeals to the magpie in her - Tracy said it looks likes gold leaf! The pigments come in 6 different metallic shades and are available on our website.
