Sleeps ‘Til Christmas Decoration

I saw this painted, wooden sign in Poundland and thought I might be able to do something with it …….
Sleeps 'til Christmas 3
…….. and it really didn’t take much work at all to just tart it up a little.
Sleeps till Christmas 1
To start with over the original painted snowflakes I simply glued a wooden one and then a smaller plastic one on top to add some extra dimension.

I then glittered over all the wording with translucent micro glitter.
Followed by using a white Posca pen to add groups of three dots here and there and in the middle of the dashes that edged the board.
The final touch was adding a tartan bow and a jingle bell to either side of the board.  Done and dusted …… now to start counting!
