Fearless Friday, Holiday Chargers



Is your tradition spending Thanksgiving weekend decorating for Christmas?





We always get a real tree, but don’t put it up until closer to Christmas

In the meantime I enjoy decorating other parts of the house

Especially the table!




Today we are going to paint some holiday chargers,

inspired by one of my favorite decorations

This Sparkling Fruit Tree





I often use foil to practice on when I paint glass or a slick surface

because the paint will react in a similar way on foil

You can plan your design and get a feel for your strokes





I mixed red with a dash of purple for the red pears

When painting multiples of the same thing, I paint them assembly line style,

painting one color/shape on each

before changing colors and painting the next shape





Just 2 or 3 strokes indicate the pear shapes and forms berries







Next green pears and a few leaves near the berries

I load my brush with yellow and green and let the colors mix as I paint them for dimension





Gold berries painted with tones of yellow and ochre

and a darker mix for the pear stems





Green dots dance around the perimeter






And small gold dots for the final touch





I like to use a lazy susan for projects like this,

You can easily spin the piece you’re working on as you paint





A stroke of white with a small brush for highlights on the pears and berries






A simple project made with $2 chargers from Hobby Lobby and gloss enamel craft paint





These chargers will be part of my tablescape next week

for the Annual Celebrate & Decorate Christmas Tablescape Hop







Be Fearless!

  4. What a wonderful project. They look so festive, but the step-by-step shows how easily it can be accomplished. Thanks!!!

  5. Those are awfully fun! I’ve seen the plain chargers at Dollar Tree and what a great idea to paint the edges for the season! Maybe if I get decorated, I can add it to my ‘to do’ list!
