Use a sponge and a stencil to add Christmas patterns to the bags with Vintage Chalk Paint or Indoor & Outdoor paint. Let it dry for 30 minutes.
Add numbers using a stencil and use Beton Paste to give it some 3D effect. Apply the Beton Paste with a painting knife. Let it dry for 30 minutes.
Decorate the Christmas patterns using different Effect Liners. Let it dry overnight.
Use Metallic paint to give the numbers, painted with the Beton Paste, a lovely shiny effect. Let it dry for 30 minutes.
Fill all the bags with little gifts. You can also tie all the bags to a stick using rope and clothespins.
