Hello there, Friends! Happy Friday! I don’t know about you, but this week has been a total blur for me. So many beautiful home tours to visit on the Very Merry Christmas Home Tour…Have you visited them all? They are all so stunning with so many inspiring ideas for Holiday decorating! Of course…I’m still adding festive touches around my house, like this over-sized ornament one of my favorite catalogs inspired me to create…
Do you ever look through magazines or catalogs and think something is so cute, but you could either make it yourself or couldn’t possibly spend that amount on said item? I do that all. the. time! In fact, this project was completely inspired by a current Pottery Barn Kids catalog. Here’s the original as seen HERE at Pottery Barn Kids. So cute, right! I just had to have one for myself, but was not about to spend $79 on it!
Ironically, I had just purchased this cut wood shape from Hobby Lobby for 50% (less than $10!) off with no exact plans of what I was going to do with it. As soon as I saw the picture in the magazine, I knew exactly what I was going to make. It’s so quick and easy- You won’t believe it!
- Wood Cutout Shape
- Red Spray Paint (Walmart)
- White Vinyl (Cut into Merry Christmas and two pine-like branches)
- Chalk pen
- Optional: Ribbon for embellishment (Target Dollar Spot)
I must have skipped taking a photo of spray painting the board, but that’s what I did first. I found the red paint at Walmart and it is the perfect Holiday red. The vinyl cutouts were created on my Cricut machine using white permanent vinyl from Expressions Vinyl. Then I applied the vinyl cutouts and drew three berries with a chalk pen. Next…this is really hard to see…I used a pencil to write the wording: The Krieger Family. You could absolutely leave this part off, though.
I went over the pencil lines with the chalk pen. You can see that it bled a tiny bit…I think it’s from the type of wood. You really cannot tell unless you look super close like I was doing with my camera.
