Christmas Crafting

The other day I was asked by a friend if I had done much crafting for the Holiday and of course my mind drew a blank.  It wasn't until I had actually made it home and saw the craft vomit all over my dining room table, that I actually remembered what I was in the process of conjuring up.   Here is a little something I whipped up.

I started with some plan wood plaques that I picked up at Hobby Lobby.  Nothing special and pretty cheap.  At Hobby Lobby you can be sure of one thing, if it is full price this week then next week it will be on sale.  If it doesn't go on sale use the 40% off coupon!

Next I slapped on a coat of Annie Sloan Old White.

Add a little scrap book paper to the dried and cured plaques.

I used Mod Podge to glue the papers down and then spread a coat on top and let dry. 

I topped it off with the cardboard letters I found at hobby lobby.  

 I painted them red and added some glitter and then glued them to the plaques.

Here is the finished product. 


I then used the left over paper with twine and burlap,  to make a Noel Pennant.  Check it out. 

I have a few other things that I am hoping to wrap up tomorrow, so be sure to check back!
