advent village calendar

The countdown is on... “It was a lot of fun working on the papers for the advent calendar free gift this issue. I love bold shapes and colours and used this as a starting point for my designs. I began by cutting out shapes from coloured paper and played around, arranging them in different ways, then contrasted these designs with simpler, more structured patterns that I knew would work for the rooftops.

terrazzo vase

MATERIALS • Glass vase (we used an IKEA CYLINDER vase) • White spray paint • Acrylic paints • Paint brush • Paper plate 01 Make sure your vase is clean and dry before beginning. Working in a well-ventilated area, protect a flat surface using an old sheet or newspaper, then spray the vase white. Start off with a thin layer, then repeat once or twice more to achieve an even coverage, leaving the paint to dry in between each layer. 02 Once dry, put together a paint palette on a paper plate, using bolder shades as well as lighter, softer tones like grey and white. 03 Use the paint brush to create tiny geometric shapes on the vase.
