Saint Nicholas of the Snows Ornament - JS012

  • Sale
  • Regular price $8.95

There is a hush over forest and fields. Frost turns the bare branches and sparse grasses to silvery white tendrils. In the midst of softly falling snows our thoughts turn to memories of the Christmas festivities when we welcome the traditions surrounding
the blessed celebration of Christ’s birth. St. Nicholas, or Father Christmas, has been a
beloved tradition and we always enjoy painting him.

Another wonderful outlet for our creative journey, each ornament is done out of mdf and laser cut with intricate detail.  The patterns are etched on the surface for ease of painting.  If you prefer to not use the etching, it can be painted over with Gesso or Texture paste and then the pattern can be applied - as you prefer.

This ornament originally appeared in our packet, Saint Nicholas of the Snows, JP3121.  If you have that packet already then you have the instruction for painting this design and can just purchase the blank.

Saint Nicholas of the Snows is 6.5" tall by 3.5" wide.
