I haven't been to Christmassy- if that's a word - in the past, but this year I 've decided my theme will be "BE MERRY". After all, what else is there to be this time of the year. This is just a small 3 scrap board sign that was painted white, then added a tree that was traced from a candy dish. Then I painted on the words in red. Mike cut a star from scrap metal and buffed it shiny.
My next little project was made from 2 boards on the bottom and 1 on top. I had some left over green paint so I did the bottom 2 boards with this. The top 1 was painted white and the letters I did in red.
This is a little hard to see since the boards are on the same green paint that are on my walls- I told you I had leftover paint- I found some round drawer knobs that were already white so I added them to be used as hooks.
The nail heads were still in the wood so I just left them. They did not go thru to the other side, but they did give the piece a little character.
This is a picture on a different wall so a little easier to see the boards.
As seen in previous posts, I love making pallet serving trays. This is one of the ones I've done for Christmas.
I kept with the same tree pattern that was on the sign and painted the letters red as well. The handles were stained very dark and poly was applied to all. Small wood squares are on the bottoms to work as feet. The cute Santa cups are from my collection.
The black dots on the picture are natural elements in the wood. I just left them on the piece.
My last project has easily become my favorite. A star created by- you guessed it- scrap wood. The middle board I painted "Merry and Bright" in keeping with my theme for this year.
Making this was really easy once I decided what I was going to make. I had the top board already painted since I like to paint all at once when I can. All I did was rough sand some boards and then screwed them together starting at the bottom in a star shape ending with "Merry and Bright" on top. I did apply poly just to give it a finished look.
Thank you for stopping by and visiting. Hoping that the upcoming holiday season finds everyone healthy and happy.... we don't have White Christmas's in Florida, but may your days be Merry and Bright.
Enjoy your week,
