DIY Snowflake Chargers with Martha Stewart Plaid

I love to decorate for Christmas and my theme for the past few years has been silver, blue, chrome, white and lots of snowflakes!  This year, I have added that to my dining table!

 I made these super cute Snowflake Chargers with the help of Martha Stewart Plaid!  They were easy, lots of fun and cheap:)

 I started with a 6ft. 1×12.  I cut it into squares at 11 1/4″.  Your hardware store can do the same.  ( A 6ft. board will make 6 chargers).

Next, I used a Martha Stewart Roller Top to apply a base coat on each board.  I chose the Martha Stewart acrylic paint color Wedding Cake.   Now for a little sparkle:)

I used a Martha Stewart Specialty Sponge to apply acrylic Metallic!  I LOVE the Metallic acrylic paint!!!!  It’s so shiny!

I chose two cute snowflakes from this package of 37 holiday stencils.

 The specialty sponge made stenciling so easy!

 When I was done painting, I used the Martha Stewart Brush and Stencil Cleaner to wash all of the paint off.  It worked like a charm:)

 I was in LOVE with the cute little snowflakes but the chargers needed a finishing touch:) 

I sanded the edges down

and applied a light stain for an aged look.

LOVE these!!! 

 

Thanks so much again to Martha Stewart Plaid for helping me create the perfect place settings for Christmas!  ~Ashley
