Paula Cheney. I started off with an Idea-ology Framed Panel and some Ranger Foil Tape. I detailed the technique on the first blog post so instead of reinventing the wheel, I'm just going to say, check it out here: Milk Cap Christmas Tree.
Also, just a note that I also covered the back of the panel with the Foil Tape. Before attaching the frame, I cut 1.5" strips and adhered them on all the edges, folding them over onto the back of the piece, then I just trimmed a full 6x12" piece to the length of the back and adhered it. I aged it with the Distress Crayons the same way I did the frame. Then I attached them together.
Thanks for stopping by to see my new, updated version of this project. It's one of my favorite holiday makes from years past. It goes so perfectly on my kitchen mantle at Christmas, with a vintage milk bottle we got from my husband's grandfather.
I have links below to all the new products and some of the older ones I used in my makes this year. Enjoy! And stay tuned for some upcoming tutorials on some of my other makes in the coming weeks.
