Noel and the Jessie Tree

I know Christmas is over, and you might think this post should have come about 4 weeks ago so you could design your own masterpiece. However, by posting this tutorial now, you can take advantage of all the post-Christmas sales and buy your supplies at a huge discount. Then, take your time distressing the letters. It will be ready and perfect for the next holiday season.

This beauty was crafted by Jessica and it is designer gorgeous.

Jessica sourced the original idea back to here. The site is not English but the pictures are inspiration enough. She found the picture on Pinterest.

Here is how she achieved her look (click the links for detailed instructions on how to master each technique):

N is a wooden letter, stained, painted and distressed

O is an icy wreath purchased on sale

E is cardboard wrapped with yarn

L is a wooden letter aged using the vinegar/steel wool technique

She made the three felt flowers and the branches to the right of Noel are their Jessie tree.
