Have you seen this cute Merry Christmas sign?
I saw it, I loved it, and decided to make my own.
I took apart an old framed picture and used the back of the art for this project.
It's a black thick piece of foam board.
I made up and painted on some white chalk paint.
After it dried, I penciled around some stencils.
This is what I had. It's definitely not perfect. It's a little crooked because I didn't take time to measure accurately. But I finished it and it looked fine. It's rustic we like to say :)
I used paint pens to color it in. I then sanded around the edges of the foam board to let some of the black show through.
I think one reason I love to make things is to see nothing turn into something.
And it doesn't have to be perfect to be pretty.
I finally brought my husbands old ladder in the house. My friend Carol from Art and Sand is a ladder decorating expert and she inspired me to do this.
This little spot is in the living room. I might leave the ladder there and see what I can come up with after Christmas.
I hope you were inspired!
