One of my MOST FAVORITE vignettes from this year’s Christmas decoration was this one right here:
It’s rusty, it’s junky, it’s vintage, it’s DIY-y AND it’s Christmas-y, all rolled into one little corner of my living room.
Have I mentioned how much I love this vintage church attendance sign? Only like, forty-leven times…
I’m sure y’all are like “FOR THE LOVE PLEASE JUST STOP WITH THE SIGN WOMAN”.
No? Ok, good.
I thought about doing some kind of bible verse (after all, it is a church sign), but then I stumbled upon this cute premade graphic by my favorite designer in the Silhouette store, Kolette Hall, and decided it would work perfectly for the look I was going for. Plus it was only .50 cents this week!! WOOT!
First I cut out white letters, thinking I would mount them on black scrapbook paper….
But the thought of trying to get all those little letters perfectly straight sounded like torture. Then it occurred to me that I could just cut out BLACK letters and mount the pre-cutout black paper onto some white paper for some quick reverse imaging that is perfectly straight every time.
Easy peasy. I used a glue stick on the white paper and slapped the black cutout on top, then placed the floating centers of the “A” “O” and “R”s in by hand.
I also used my Silhouette to make this cute Fa La La La La wood slice garland which makes me happy every single time I look at it!
You won’t believe how easy it was! You could totally shellac these suckers with some of Clark Griswold’s non-nutritive cereal varnish and keep them in the family forever.
Now it’s time to sit back and enjoy the glow of all my Christmas lights while binging on hot chocolate and Home Alone on ABC 25 Days of Christmas.
Who is with me? Keep the change, ya filthy animals.
