DECORATIVE PAINTING for CHRISTMAS

I have a niece who loves to paint beautiful designs on glass ornaments, mugs, plates, etc. for Christmas.  I have been the grateful recipient of several of these gorgeous gifts.  Each year, I lovingly unwrap them and carefully display them.  Every time I look at either of the gifts, I think of my precious niece.  I imagine her carefully applying each stroke of paint to create a gift of beauty.

This book has several Christmas designs, as well as, fall and winter designs.  All of the designs are beautiful.  It is really hard to choose which project to paint first!  There is something in the book for everyone.

This holly leaf and peppermint design is one of my personal favorites.  Not only is this plate perfect for serving treats to my family, but it is especially appropriate for offering Santa's cookies :)

These little gingerbread men are adorable on the featured teapot and mugs.  I love this tea set design, but there is no need to  restrict yourself to teapots, mugs and plates.  Allow yourself to explore different mediums.  Who knows, you may even find yourself painting a lovely design on the outside of your pets dinner bowl!


No doubt, once you see this book, you will have several personal favorites too.  There really are a lot of designs to choose from and to paint for Christmas.

  1. What a great thing to do for crafting your own Christmas gifts. I love the little gingerbread men - so adorable. And I hope I don't paint the pets' dinner bowls. I'll be busy for weeks with all my pets!
