I have been busy this past week making various Christmas decorations. I am willing to give a sneak peak, however I cannot reveal the final product until a certain very special package arrives.
So today, I was noticing I had a fairly empty spot on one of my shelves. I checked out PB for some inspiration and came across this:
It is fairly old and I remember admiring it last year, but it was a perfect project for me to do today. Now I know there are probably many amazing DIY ways to do this project, but the goal for me was for it to be completely free (a.k.a. I already have the supplies on hand).
So I started with a large piece of tag board that was hiding in my closet. I originally planned on printing out letters, but could not get them large enough so I had to draw the letters by hand.
I then took some brown acrylic paint that I had on hand and painted the letters, that process looked something like this.
After I finished painting, it looked more like this.
Two hours and zero dollars later, I ended up with this.
It looks pretty good for not spending a dime! After showing to Cody he responded with, "oh I'll just trace that on a thin piece of wood for you and cut it out so it isn't flimsy". Well okay, as long as you have all the supplies on hand :).
