With very little time on my hands and running like a crazy woman, I wanted to quickly share with you guys the project that started
my Christmas decorating madness!!! :)
I saw this idea many, many years ago at a store in Colorado and I have been wanting to incorporate it into my Christmas decor since then.
Well, this is the year!
I will show you all soon where I will be displaying them,
but I not quite ready to do that yet, so,
meanwhile, I will show you how I made them.
First, I looked for the letters everywhere and
just could not find the right size, so my husband
offered to make them for me, minus the O,
for which I used a small wreath
Thank you, honey!
He is such a good man! :)
When they were ready, I used on them
Gold metallic Rub & Buff.
Why Rub & Buff? Because it is what I had on hand
and it worked out beautifully!
They were dried in minutes,
so I traced them on scrapbook paper in
different Holiday designs and cut and applied to the
front of the letters using mod podge.
I added a small pick from the Dollar tree to the wreath
and sprayed a little fake snow on it.
I did the same with the star in a different Holiday design
and at the last minute, I added to it a little cord
and a tiny holiday embellishment
to give it a little character.
And here is the final project
Very, very easy and very economical!
Total cost of project was under $5.00.
Homemade letters: $0.00
4 sheets Scrapbook paper: $1.20
Small wreath: $2.00
Christmas pick: $1.00
Hope you enjoyed this small project tutorial.
You will be able to see it very soon incorporated in my Christmas decor.
Meanwhile, have a great weekend and see you all soon!
