instructions

Fa La La Banner

  1. Iron your canvas banner so that it lays flat.
  2. Line up your stencils so that it reads “Fa La La” across your banner.
  3. Stencil your banner with your favorite colors from the Apple Barrel PROMOABI kit. Let dry.
  4. Remove the dowel from your banner and paint the dowel with Bright Magenta. Let dry.
  5. Cut and glue your pom-pom trim to the bottom edges of your banner.

Poured Paint Skins - Snowflakes

  1. In a 1:1 ratio, mix your Apple Barrel paint with your Apple Barrel Pouring Medium.
  2. Pour your pouring mixtures straight onto your pan. You can also use the run-off paint from a previous paint pour. Swirl the paint in the pan to create a beautiful marbled pattern. Let it dry completely.
  3. Cut out your snowflake pictures, lay them on your dry paint skins, trace them, and then cut them out.
  4. Mod Podge your paint skin snowflakes onto your posterboard.
