Have you ever done one of those projects that looked like you really had some “true talent”? One that had that little extra wow factor and set your display off just right? Well, today I am sharing one of those with you. It has turned out to be one of those projects that I LOVE…but it is also one of those projects that literally took about 10 minutes from start to finish. Those projects are a win win in my book, and they don’t come along often enough!
I love to decorate, but that doesn’t mean that I love to spend a ton of money to decorate. Don’t get me wrong, over the past 10 years of decorating for the season, I have accumulated quite a bit of goodies, but I always like to add new, unique pieces. With the recent success of my pallet coat rack, I have ended up with more than my fair share of pallet wood. Sometimes it feels like my garage is about to explode, and you can forget ever parking a car in there. Who needs to protect your car when you have pallet wood and projects to protect!? But anyway, with all of this extra pallet wood, it made perfect sense to incorporate some of those extra boards into my holiday decor this year…so I did.
Let’s get started…
I found these large letters at Hobby Lobby for half off of $3.49. At the time, I wasn’t sure what I would do with them, but for that price, I knew I would do something, so I grabbed them up. I decided to cover them with Christmas wrapping paper (also from Hobby Lobby) and Mod Podge. There is a full tutorial on how to do this in a previous post.
How cute are these designs?! I love the traditional red, green and white for Christmas (and you will see this more when I show you my living room a little later!)
After covering the letters, I took 2 pallet boards that I had and placed them together on the floor…and then I placed my letters on top to arrange them just the way I wanted. I did not stain, sand, or do anything to these boards. They were already “seasoned” by the weather perfectly. (And in case you are wondering about height, they are 39″ tall.)
Ignore the dirty floors. Projects are messy, you know? I mean, they would totally be spotless if it wasn’t for that! (Insert major sarcasm)
When I had the letters placed right where I wanted them, I glued them on with liquid nails to ensure the best adhesion. After that, VOILA- you are done! Easy peasy…10 minute project that looks like you put a whole lot more effort than that 🙂
What do you think? Is this a project you would want to tackle for your holiday decor? I really think this would also be cute propped up beside a fireplace, or even hanging on a wall. The possibilities are endless! Tis the season!
