Crafty, Scrappy, Happy: Joy.

Thursday, November 17, 2011


Hello friends! 
 I am once again too excited to wait when it comes to holiday decor
& sharing it with you.
I LOVE decorating for the seasons.
ESPECIALLY when I can MAKE my own decor!

this Joyful sign makes me SUPER happy.

Simple, subtle and just enough to create a seasonal space!

I know that pallets are the "in" thing right now, but I didn't use pallets for this project, I used hardwood flooring that I picked up from the bargain center of my local hardware store! 
{I think it that the boards costed about $1.00 total, and got two for that price}

I started out by staining the wood and then I "white washed" the wood with a green "trial size" paint made by Martha Stewart's home paint line.
And for your information----(Sometimes Kmart has coupons.)!!!!

To white wash I just paint on, and rub off so that you can still see woodgrain through the paint.

I used eye hooks to attach the ribbon to the board.
Andddd I just nailed the letter hooks into place.
Nice and simple but unique all at the same time!

What do you think?
Are you holding out on your holiday decor until after Thanksgiving?
Thanks SO much for stopping by!

And again just a reminder, (Sometimes Kmart has coupons.) for  Martha Stewart's Home Paint line!

Andddd p.s. I want to let you know that TOMORROW I will be over at Under the Table and Dreaming as a guest for Stephanie Lynn's STYROFOAM series going on right now---I would LOVE for you to check out my project---and while you are there check out the other amazing projects as well!!!


{I am linking up to a few of these AMAZING parties}

Great idea...and I know I've said I love that chest before, but I must aknowledge it's wonderfulness again.
I never use to be into pre-Thanksgiving Christmas decorating...but since I've been part of blogland (this is my 1st Holiday season), it's gotten me excited sooner than usual. I just opened a booth at an antique store, and I'm going to decorate for Christmas tomorrow (if I can get everything done! eek!).
Take care-

Jaime! You are just so dang creative! I absolutely LOVE this to pieces. The great thing about using the hooks is that you can use different ribbon & hang various things from it. Yes, I agree with Amy need to come to California and redecorate my house. :)

I love this! The wood floor boards with ribbon, the metal letter hooks and greenery make such a beautiful Christmas decoration. I love the letter hooks especially, and am thinking I might have seen these at Hobby Lobby? They are so darn sweet :)
