These beautiful musical instruments will help anyone ring in the holidays on a cheerful note! You can cut them and leave them as is (cherry was used for the sample) and finish them with mineral oil and a clear sealer, or you can paint them for an entirely different look. I sprayed them with metallic gold paint and then used DecoArt Acrylics with their staining medium to wash on a hint of color for the bows and holly leaves and berries. The result was very pretty! This scroll saw pattern includes full instructions for applying both finishes.
