So a few months ago I saw this pinned all over the place and thought it was really cute. I decided I would make one for myself. Mine ended up being a lot bigger then hers but I love how it turned out. Here is my scarecrow side for the fall.
Here is a close up of the snowman side.
Here is my front porch for the winter. I love that I am able to get two seasons out of this decoration!!
We have a tradition that every year we take a family picture in front of our Christmas tree. I decided that I needed to do something special with those pictures and have something that I can add to eat year. After brainstorming with my mom this is what I came up with. I bought the plastic clear ornaments and printed off our picture for each year, added a red bow and cut out green vinyl with the year.
Here is where I hung them up. I wanted some place a bit different then the tree to display them. Now whoever comes and visits they can see them right when they walk in the house.
I saw a sign here and I loved it so I thought I would try making it myself. I haven't had too much success making stencils and wood signs but I did this one differently and it turned out great!
After painting my board with chalk paint and letting it dry. I cut out my letters using vinyl, (after doing this and some more investigating I read that contact paper works great as well) then using the paint that I used as my base I painted the edges of the letters and let that dry to prevent the new color of paint from bleeding under the stencil. I then painted my stencil.
Here it is after I removed the stencil. I decided it was a bit too white, so I watered down some brown paint and rubbed it onto my board. I know there are many ways to make your board look older this is just what I did because it was what I had conveniently located.
I'm sorry the quality isn't the best, I took it from my phone quickly but I wanted to show you guys this year's Christmas ties. I was so excited when I found this fabric this year and my husband and my boys are loving them.
