Secret Santa

I think I’ve said it at least a million times on this blog: I love to give gifts. So what better office mood-lightener is there than Secret Santa!? This year, the first theme happened to be “Something Cozy”. At first I thought about the Hot Cocoa mug craft I guest posted for One Artsy Mama. But, having done that already I felt it was a little blah to re-use it in the same season. So then I got to thinking. A few weeks ago while at Ikea I picked up several red and several white fleece blankets for $3.49 each. I’ve also stocked up on several paints that do dual duty on fabric. So, I put together this little number. And to top it all off, its got my Secret Santa Recipient’s monogram. =D I think this one will be a hit!

How to Make it:

  1. Choose your paint colors and your stamps. I went with various shades of blue and snowflakes. Its wintery, so my recipient can use it through the whole season.
  2. Lay out your blanket- wrinkle free.
  3. Place your stencils. I used a combination of the Martha Stewart brand self adhesive stencils and a generic brand self adhesive stencil. Its nice because they don’t slide around on the slippery Fleece material.
  4. With an up and down dabbing motion, paint the inside of your stencils. Once dry, remove and then re-place so that you can continue your design.
  5. Allow to dry thoroughly before rolling up into a cozy bundle!
