The Holidays can seem like a hurried time - rushing to get everything done.  However, with a few tools, you can create holiday decor quickly and inexpensively.  
Make sure you have your set of Artisan's Effect chalk markers ready to create your own special pieces.
Our line of chalk markers work great on such things as these wooden cutout ornaments as shown below.  Our chalk markers are permanent on porous material like wood and by simply coloring in sections of a piece like this, you can achieve a beautiful look.  Try this craft today.  You will be happy you did.

A Christmas Centerpiece That Magically Transforms From A Thanksgiving Centerpiece

Posted on December 01, 2015 by Michelle Rynn

Ok- It's not really magic, but if you use Artisan's Effect markers it is quick and easy to transform decorations for the seasons.

Remember the Thanksgiving Centerpiece I made with Artisan's Effect markers:

After Thanksgiving, I wiped off the design with a slightly damp paper towel and created my new design for Christmas:

It took only a few minutes to change my dining room table centerpiece.  Throughout the season, you can also add to your design.  How about adding  your family members' names or writing your friends' names on it to welcome them to a special dinner party?

Garden Themed Advent Calendar

Posted on November 09, 2015 by Michelle Rynn

I love gardening, but during the Winter there are some challenges to having a nice garden.  That is why I like to bring the outdoors in, especially during the holiday season. 

This garden themed advent calendar is a perfect way for you and your family to countdown the days until Christmas while having a beautiful decoration for your home.  And, you can use many things you already have or purchase garden items that may be on clearance at the end of the growing season.

First, I placed a trellis into a large pot in which I fitted floral foam.

 Second, I placed floral moss on top of the foam.

 

 

Next, I used Artisan's Effect markers to write the numbers 1-25 on various chalkboard markers that have clothespins attached on the back.  You can find these chalkboard pieces at most craft stores.  I used a variety of designs for an eclectic look

 

 

So, on December 1 all the chalkboard markers are turned around and each day you turn around the corresponding number until you reach December 25th.  The clothespins make it easy to turn the numbers around.

 

I attached a metal decorative piece using a clothespin.

And I used the Artisan's Effect chalk markers to write a bible verse on the metal piece.  Because these markers erase easily on non-porous surfaces, I can change the bible verse whenever I want during the season.

I took a chalkboard garden marker and used Artisan's Effect markers to write Christmas Countdown.  Lastly, I "planted" my garden pot with two snow brushed poinsettias that I simply placed into the floral foam.

 

This project actually did not take that long to complete and is a beautiful and stunning piece for your Christmas Décor.
