Christmas Decorative Painting Project & Brush Giveaway!!! {Acrylic Painting and Free Pattern!}

Hi friends! I had a lot of fun designing this acrylic painting project for you. I thought it would be sweet to paint these motifs on a paper mache mailbox that my friend Kathy gave me last year but you can paint it on any surface you like such as a canvas, slate, cigar box or even a greeting card. Here is what the finished project will look like:

mailboxblog1 mailboxblog2

You can download my free printable template here. I just realized that my scanner can scan something as a PDF so it will print out the correct size for you and hopefully be easier for you to print than a snapshot of a sketch. Today’s video includes step by step instructions for painting this “Letters to Santa” mailbox. Watch the video to see how!

You can win this bundle of brushes, or any set of your choice from our sponsor FABART! Β Just let me know in the comments if you want to win the brushes I used or another set from the store. Also you can save 20% on ANY of the brushes or interchangeable knitting needles in the FABARTΒ store too by using coupon code: KZCPG9ZE Β (Amazon Prime members get free 2 day shipping!) This is a great discount for buying holiday gifts or restocking your own brushes!

Supplies:

Skill level: Beginner
Time Needed: 1-2 hours
Skills learned: color mixing, brush strokes, brush care

Directions:
1. Base coat mailbox and let dry.
2. Cut apart the printable pattern and rub the back with a light-colored chalk. Place the image chalk side down on your surface and trace. This will transfer your design.
3. Using the chalk likes as a guide, paint your image.
4. Paint Santa’s Address on the flag side of the mailbox.
5. Freehand a candy cane stripe on the flag and lip of the front of the box.
6. Load a toothbrush with watery white paint and spatter it all over the mailbox if desired.
7. To protect the paint for years and years follow-up with your favorite water based sealer.

I hope you enjoyed this project and if you know anyone else who would like it please send them my way or share this project using one of the handy social media buttons at the end of this post. Don’t forget to comment for a chance to win a set of brushes or knitting needles, I will draw a name at random in one week! If you plan on ordering these brushes or anything else from the Fabart store be sure to use the couponΒ KZCPG9ZE for 20% off and the interchangeable brushes are back in stock! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

  69. How cute! This reminds me of a similar mailbox I made (though not as ornate) as a child at school for a friend and I to leave notes in for each other between classes. A teacher saw it, ripped it up and threw it away. They weren’t big on creativity, privacy, or making or having friends (those were just distractions in their minds). Thankfully I didn’t have to go there too many years. Although I can’t say that the public school system was much better at the time (a Really Long time ago, LOL). πŸ˜•

He was a big Wisconsin Badger fan, so I spray painted the mailbox white, then I painted Bucky Badger surrounded by sports gear and pennants. He’s shredded the pennants of the other Big 10 teams and they are scattered all over the place! lol On the opening of the mailbox, I painted the Badger claw marks! I then spray painted a clear coat to protect the painting! It was daunting and fun!

  205. G’day there! I would really love to win the brushes, and I’m just getting back into painting , which I haven’t really done any painting for a number of years, due to raising my daughter on my own since she was 5 years old. Then I was about to go to university, but my mother passed away, and after giving for her, I was in a motor vehicle accident, and I haven’t really come to terms with after 15 years. I really want to get back into my artwork, and I’ve started gathering my paints, some canvases, but all my brushes are old, and difficult to use, so I really hope that I win these brushes, so my art work looks a lot better than they do now. Thank you for listening to my life story. In Love and Light, Brightest Blessings, and wishing you a very happy Christmas and new year.

It’s a beautiful thing when you repurpose something and it’s better than what it was made for and then not having to buy more to make it. I hope to inspire others like you have one day and say “thefrugalcrafter” showed me how to do that. It goes without saying I would love this giveaway and if I’m not I hope the one that does receive it will use it to inspire others. I hope all you guys have a wonderful holiday!
