Christmas Craftiness: Wooden Plaques


I have been kind of obsessed with this blog lately. The Shanty Sisters are crafty AND creative. I want to make so many of the things they create. I loved these JOY plaques that they made, so I copied them and tweaked mine a little. I have a friend that decorates with "grinch" green and red. I love those colors every year, so I decided to use that color scheme. The Shanty Sisters give a great tutorial, so follow theirs if you want to recreate.




Up close - I am still trying to figure out how they distress theirs. Maybe they have stronger arms than me, but I sanded and sanded until I thought my arm might fall off!


















On my buffet - I took these pictures while I was still in the process of decorating, so it's not quite finished in this picture.

  1. I love those! I was telling someone about those and how cute they were. I haven't crafted a bit...feeling a bit overwhelmed with the hustle and bustle. Maybe next year I can get my butt in gear. Love them, miss y'all!
