You all know I’m a sucker for holiday ambiance. I love decorating and setting the table for holiday gatherings. I guess those who can’t cook, decorate. When I found these unfinished round wooden pallets, I knew I had to incorporate them into my holiday dinner plans! Dress up your holiday tablescape with these Holiday Dinner Chargers!
Because these bad boys were going to be lying under plates full of yummy holiday dinners, I wanted a paint that would provide easy clean up! The new Americana Decor Maxx Gloss Paint offers just that. For the first time ever, you can get the sheen and laquer of spray paint in a brush on paint. No more freezing your tail off in the garage or outside in the cold winter months. This paint can be used indoors in the comfort of your cozy warm home! It’s water based and non toxic. Once cured, this paint can hold up to household cleaners! In short – it’s brilliant!
For these Holiday Dinner Chargers, you will need unfinished round wooden pallets (found these at Michaels), Americana Decor Maxx Gloss in Candy Apple and White China, snowflake stencil, and a paint brush.
Sand the pallets to a smooth finish. Brush off any excess sand dust with a dry cloth. Begin painting with the Candy Apple. Let dry to touch between coats. For this project, I used two coats of red paint.
Let dry over night.
Place your snowflake stencils on the painted surface.
Gently brush on the white paint. Let dry to touch and then apply second coat of white paint.
Once dry, carefully remove the stencils. Touch up any places where the white paint bled with the red paint.
Once they have sat for 14 days, they will easily clean off any excess cranberry sauce or gravy that has slipped off the holiday plate!
I am in LOVE with how these turned out!
Americana Decor Maxx Gloss is available in 20 different colors! Grab yours at any of these stores – Michaels, Home Depot, Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores and Meijer!
