Can you believe it already?
Thanksgiving is this Thursday! I cannot wait and even better that my kiddos are out of school all week so we have already started celebrating!
Today I am taking part of an fun Secret Santa tour with some of my favorite bloggers so just for a moment lets think about Christmas!
We all chose names and made each other handmade gifts. It was fun to be a part of.
Here is my gift that I made for Lani at Simply Fresh Vintage:
I had some wood pieces left over from my Pottery Barn Knockoff Outdoor Wood Deer Project and wanted to make some ornaments for Lani's tree.
I cut them down with our chopsaw into half inch pieces.
I then sanded the wood chips until they were smoothe and traced the letters on each piece by using the same technique as detailed in my Fall Chalkboard Sign Tutorial Post.
I colored in the letters with a red Krylon brand Short Cuts paint pen and a green Sharpie marker.
I added some little hooks and ribbons and a coat of poly, and they were good to go!
I couldn't decide what words to use so I made two sets, Joy and Noel.
I hope Lani likes them as much as I do and can use them in her home.
And now I get to unwrap what another blogger sent to me!
Check out this cute Memo Board that Beth from Farm Fresh Vintage Finds made for me.
There are many places that I can use it in my home during the holidays and throughout the year.
I love it, thank you Beth!
To see how she made it, go visit Farm Fresh Vintage Finds.
This was a fun tour and I hope you enjoy visiting all of the other blogs participating and that it inspires you to try a few of your own DIY/Handmade gifts!
