HOME DECOR DIY: Shabby Chic Chalk Paint Shamrock Wreath

I made this shabby chic shamrock wreath using chalk paint, crackle medium, waxes, and a metal heart wreath left over from Valentine's day. I received the Folk Art Home Decor Crackle medium, wax brush, Martha Stewart Vintage Decor paints and waxes from Plaid Crafts while at CHA 2015. I found them overall easy to use. Chalk paint binds to wood, metal and glass. It has to be sealed with a wax. Folk Art Home Decor paints come in about 40 colors, with white, antique and clear waxes. Their colors range from muted to bright. The Martha Stewart Vintage Decor paints come in muted colors with a few brights. I prefer brighter richer colors, but I used what I had on hand.

For something new, I recorded this tutorial. You can watch it below. It's my 1st video tutorial.

CRAFT LEVEL: Intermediate

All of the instructions and some tips, are in the below video. I'll make more videos soon, for various crafts. Sometimes demonstrating the project is easier than written instructions.
