I didn't do a very good job of sharing the few Christmas projects I did complete. My favorite project is the two new holiday signs I made:
Remember all those cabinet doors I bought? I used two matching doors to make the signs. I sanded them then painted them with spray paint (Rust-Oleum American accents Claret Wine). It took about 5 coats to get the color I wanted and this is probably the first time I haven't painted the back of my project. After the paint dried, I sanded the edges and added some stain to give it an aged look. I purchased the vinyl sayings from JanDee Crafts on Etsy. The hardware was leftover from my hutch makeover. The hardware had been sitting in the garage for over a year, and I'm glad I saved it because the knobs were perfect for my signs. I hung my signs on either side of the picture window in my living room.
Earlier this fall, I made another signs out of a piece of wood and a Cricut stencil:
I think I prefer the vinyl wording since it takes me forever to cut the stencil, get it to stick to the wood then paint it without messing the whole thing up.
