How To Decorate A MDF Advent Calendar With Best Glue Ever

Hi all

I am up on the Scraperfect blog today with an altered Advent calendar using Best Glue Ever.

Start off by coating the mdf with gesso or white paint. This is so the next paint layer doesn't soak into the wood.

Once the first layer has dried ,apply the top coat of paint. I choose traditional colours.

I used a number die cut set and used brown craft foam. I then used Best Glue Ever to adhere them to the draws.

I then gathered up a selection of small embelishments and gems and used Best Glue Ever to adhere them to the draws.

I added small gems and pearls to the Christmas trees by adding small blobs of glue. I used the fine tipped cap which makes it easier to  add glue to small pieces.
