You all know I’m all about saving time. Between working full time outside the home, raising a family and running this here ole blog, I have very little free time. So I LOVE it when a project can be thrown together quickly and just in time for the holidays! This Chalky Finish Christmas Frame is perfect for holiday decor or as a last minute Christmas present! Oh, and I included a free printable.
I began with an unfinished wooden frame. You can pick one up at your local Michaels Store!
Pro tip: Use a foil cupcake liner for easy painting and clean up!
The Americana® Decor™ Chalky Finish Paint color is Enchanted. It’s the perfect color of green. What I love about this paint, is how well it covers! I used ONE COAT! That’s it! It applies easily and leaves such a crisp clean look.
Allow the paint to dry.
Once dry, I used the Americana® Decor™ Clear Creme Wax to protect the paint.
They have a variety of other wax finishes and varnishes to choose from to create your own custom look. I took a clean lint free cloth and gently applied the wax finish. It dries quickly (another bonus!).
Once the wax was dry, I added my Christmas quote – “I will honor Christmas and keep it in my heart all the year.”

Pro tip: If you save the printable to your computer and open through File Explorer, you can size it when you print!
Add some ribbon to hang and it is finished!
