A Message for Santa...

With Christmas Eve fast approaching it's time to get those decorations up, plan the Christmas Dinner and get out all those finishing touches ready in time for the big day!! And these little wooden door hangers are a magical way to decorate any little childs (or big childs) door on Christmas Eve.
I have hand painted each door hanger using acrylic paint and added stamped flourishes. The vintage images are printed onto matt photo paper and then pretty butterfly wings are then added, the wings are either printed onto acetate for a transparent effect, or fluffy paper to give a velvet feel to the touch.
On some of the hangers the message is printed onto decal paper and then wet and slid onto the hanger, with others I have printed onto ordinary photo paper and adhered the cut out with tacky glue.
The hangers really do look very pretty, and children love to hang them on their door on Christmas Eve to ensure "HE" calls on them!

I need one that says "I know I've been naughty, but stop here anyway!"
