DIY Salvaged Junk Projects 556
Every Friday, 7 PM through Wednesday 11 PM Pacific
I finally (forced myself to) put my Christmas tree up yesterday… and will slowly work it in with my given theme this year now that it’s staring me down hard! Are you built like that too? Sometimes you need the white elephant in the room to draw some attention to the need.
So why the delay?
This time of year, I tend to get a little more quiet on the blog and with Christmas decorating in general because I’m showcasing short and sweet demos for the stencils side of my biz. These projects don’t generally show up on the blog because they are a little too simple for big involved blog posts, yet still valuable for fun and easy ideas, especially if you aren’t sure what a given stencil looks like once used!
Case in point… these Christmas Sweater stencils look adorable on skis, which will end up above my kitchen windows in my (eventual) Christmas home tour!
I think I’m going to create one place to find all the demos through the blog, but until then, follow me on Instagram at Old Sign Stencils HERE, where you can watch all of them in saved Story Highlights!
But I did manage to do another really fun larger project I’ve been wanting to try for years…
I’ve always wanted to make a Christmas tag sign and finally made it happen! And know what? It was every bit as easy as making a straight sign, but the extra details really take it in a much different direction!
Isn’t it the cutest?!
And once again, you blew me away with your incredible projects! You’ve been busy! Here’s some fab highlights you’re gonna LOVE from last week’s party…
