Santa's Key

Hello Crafty people!!
I do hope your all having fun with the run up to Christmas and if you have little children i hope they are all excited at seeing Santa!!
I know i use to be super excited when my son was little and still believed in Santa. 
Every Christmas Eve we would hang a Santa Key on the door so Santa could get in the house as we had no Chimney for him to climb down! lol 

So when i first saw this MDF Santa Key from That Craft Place Ltd it reminded me of what we use to do so i just had to get me one!! 

So here's what the MDF Key looks like naked
(measuring just over 5 inches)

Firstly prime the MDF with Multi Surface Primer and leave to dry.
Once dry i gave it 2 coats of Red Acrylic Paint.

Next i dry brushed Tarnished Gold Cosmic Shimmer Shimmer Paints all around the edges of the key shape.
Next i dry brushed the Santa words and the present with White Acrylic Paint.

  Here's a couple of close up photo's so you can see the dry brushed edges.

When the paint was all dry i next applied Ranger's Clear Emboss it Dabber to the Santa word and the present and then sprinkled Stampendous Frantage Shabby White and heated that to melt it. 
I made a largish bow and added some gems and some ribbon in which to hang the Key.

Here it is all finished!!

The MDF key and all the products used were from That Craft Place Ltd
