This centerpiece is a holder for favors you can give your guests or visitors when they are in your home for the Christmas Holidays – you could also create another, more generic, one that could be used throughout the year.
I began the project with 3 Mini Crates and 6 small Ball® jars. Using a large flat brush, paint the slat sides of each Crate with DecoArt® Americana® acrylic Holly Green and the ends with Tuscan Red. I used 2 coats of each color, sanding lightly between coats with fine sandpaper. Let dry thoroughly.
When the Crates are thoroughly dry, use a large flat brush to paint 2 coats of Americana® Matte Varnish for a protective finish. Let dry.
Send the jars home with your guests or visitors as favors! Enjoy your Holidays with family and friends.
