Holiday Message

A vintage typewriter finds a clever place in your decorating scheme with a fresh coat of paint and a handwritten message from Santa himself.

What You Need:

Arrange holiday greenery around the typewriter as a centerpiece or on a tabletop.
  • Old typewriter
  • Red spray paint
  • Gold paint suitable for metal
  • Small paintbrushes
  • 6x8-inch piece of gold or patterned paper
  • Black fine-line marker


1. Spray-paint the typewriter red. The paint will overspray onto the keys. Let dry.

2. With a small brush, paint the keys and other small areas gold. Let dry.

3. Write a message on the paper with the marker and put in the typewriter.
