Fearless Friday, Merry Mimosa Bar and Candy Cane Easels

Whew, here we are, December 23!




For a little extra jolly I painted a sign for our bar




Which is all set up as a Merry Mimosa Station




Help yourself!




I used a short piece of board and painted it black




I wanted to incorporate an evergreen branch and a bright red ornament




I designed it in PicMonkey first, a fast way to move things around to try out different fonts and designs





At the last minute I changed it from vertical to horizontal






Make quick short strokes in brown for the branches

Sap green and a very bright yellow green was used so the greenery wouldn’t get lost in the black




Next, lay in the big M for mimosa




finish adding the letters, filling in the O as a base for the ornament




go back and finish sketching in the merry

You can use a chalk outline before painting if you want and then just paint over it




Go back over the letters with another coat of white




Finish the ornament by painting it red, leaving a white outline to make it stand out, and adding a silver cap and hanger and a white highlight




I also added candy cane stripes to the m e r r y letters




Do you see the Santa card labels below by the juices?




They are candy cane easels




3 small candy canes glued together




I made some for the table




and to use on the buffet with name cards for the dishes




A quick last minute craft!




Merry Mimosa!

    How do you find the time to do so much and what you create adds so much. Your sign is just wonderful! Much of my time right now is spent in my studio trying to finish pieces for folks to give as presents. That means things at home are pretty much neglected! Merry, merry to you and yours.

  3. I love this entire post! Love the easels and the painted sign. Wishing you all the love, joy and peace of season as well as a very Happy New Year!

  4. That’s really cute. Please tell me you set this up in July or something when nothing was going on so I don’t feel like such a slacker! I’m hoping against hope that I can paint tomorrow!
