I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving and are getting ready for this Christmas season. I tend to stay away from all the hustle and bustle of the stores this time of year. Me and crowds do not mix well together.
So, what does one do when they avoid the stores? They get creative!
In my efforts to be organized the best I can be by 2016 I wanted to make some decorative wall plaques to help me be accountable and keep track of my busy schedule. I have a lot of new things coming in the new year and I can’t wait to share it with everyone.
These wall plaques were so easy to make and they would also make a great gift for anyone.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED FOR THE PROJECT:
- Wood Plaques and I found mine at Hobby Lobby
- Craft paint “Winter Blue” – or color of your choice
- Wood Lettering – I picked up at Michael’s
- Mini Wood Clothes Pins
- Index Cards or even your favorite photos
The wood plaques were the perfect size and color for what I had planned. I wanted to bring the blue of the mini clothes pins to the wood, so I just added a little bit of craft paint using the color “winter blue”.
As hard as things seem for a lot of people these days I like to be encouraged to have “hope”, to “believe” and to keep the “faith”. I bought them like you see them and all I did was hot glue them to the decorative wood plaques.
The letters fit perfectly across the plaques. You can add any kind of letter you would like. Maybe a kids name, stencil a favorite quote, or your favorite inspiration word. Oh, the possibilities.
I cut some burlap to the size I wanted, glued it onto the wood and then hot glued my mini clothes pins.
There are so many things I could do with these. I could put photos on them, maybe make different holiday welcome signs, or notes to family members. I am using them for my to-do lists. The best part about them is that you can change them out when ever you would like and all it takes is a press of the clothes pin.
PIN THIS IMAGE FOR LATER!
I hope you were inspired to make your own Decorative Wall Plaques.
