Even if you never craft anything – the holiday season is a great reason to break out the craft supplies and make something! As far as I’m concerned, the easiest, most approachable craft is one that only requires paint and a paint brush.

I’ve tried most every craft paint on the market and I can confidently say that the DecoArt Americana craft paints are my absolute favorites! They have great coverage and come in a HUGE variety of colors. Don’t quote me, but I’m pretty sure Americana paints come in at least 12 different shades of PINK! And you know I love that! They truly are the must have paint for crafters…and non-crafters too!

I’m celebrating the season with a simple project that uses my favorite Americana paints! By adding pops of color to unfinished wood nutcrackers, you can create your very own game of holiday tic-tac-toe. This project looks great displayed on your table or mantle. And when the season is done, you can stow these away until next year. Join me on Facebook Live as I walk you through the easy steps to making this project for yourself.

Keep on crafting with these other posts

  3. You are the drifting king! You can change the look of the Supra by clicking on the body parts at the bottom of the main screen and then using the coins you’ve earned to buy upgrades for both the engine and the exterior. Use the WASD keys to move the car, and the SPACEBAR to use the handbrake. Do a lot of drifts in the time you set, and then use the money you get to buy upgrades. Enjoy!
