For our visual fanschristmas gifts for dad， you’；ll enjoy this quick video tutorial showing how we？used our Mandala Stencil design on a basic burlap christmas tree skirt and the results were stunning!
Erika， our in-house craft guru， took on the task of completing the look for our office Christmas tree. She checked off the boxes for lights， garland， and ornaments but it needed something else.？ A tree skirt is the perfect way to complete the look of a Christmas tree. Erika found a plain 48 inch burlap tree skirt on Amazon that was perfect for project.
She decided to give it the stenciled touch using our 44 inch？Gratitude Mandala Stencil.？This pretty pattern was designed to help us to remember what we have and what is important in our lives. The intricate pattern was perfect for a round tree skirt.
Erika chose to paint the Mandala pattern in Ladybug Red 1322 by Benjamin Moore using a 4 inch dense foam roller. She made sure she rolled off any excess paint on a piece of paper towel.？ Too much paint will cause the design to bleed. Erika painted the entire stencil which is half of the Mandala design and then lifted to reveal.
She lined up the Mandala on the other side of the tree skirt to complete the entire pattern.
Here you can see how easy it is to align the stencil using the previously painted side of the Mandala.
She painted the rest of the pattern and peeled back the stencil to reveal the completed design.
Are you ready to see how Erika’；s stenciled tree skirt turned out？ Here it is!？We think it looks so pretty.
Erika placed it under the decorated Christmas tree in our office.
A beautiful stenciled？tree skirt？is the perfect finishing touch to any decorated Christmas tree.

Have you ever seen the movie called ‘The Sisterhood of Travelling Pants’? It’s an easy watching flick about a group of best friends who, after spending most of their lives together, are preparing to spend their first separate summer vacations?in various parts of the world. On one of the final days of their time together, they went shopping and found an amazing pair of jeans that fits all of them perfectly despite their very different shapes and measurements (wouldn’t that be a treat if that perfect pair of jeans really existed?!). The girls decide to share the jeans over the summer calling them the Travelling Pants to reflect the journey the pants will be making over the hot months to join each of them.?Sounds?interesting, doesn’t it?
