This cutie was inspired by Irish Italian Blessings. I think I’ll be doing another one like this for every holiday!
- Wood plaques, any size or shape (I chose a medium oval)
- Card stock, any color scheme (I chose candy corn colors: white, orange and yellow
- Letters – you can print them out, use a Cricut or buy wood letters (like me)
- Paint, any colors (if you chose wood letters)
- Glue (you can use wood glue, but I just used my glue gun)
- Stickers (optional)
- Ribbon or card stock strips (optional)
This one’s pretty straight forward.
- Trace your plaque shape onto the card stock; cut out and glue card stock to plaque.
- Paint your letters (if you went with my option); center letters on plaque and glue down.
- Put stickers on.
- Hang. (I used a whole lotta glue on pop tabs again.)
I had a heck of a time with this one. If you are following along on Facebook, you’ll remember my “bad craft day”… yeah, this one was on that day.
I had the plaques attached with ribbon, but that didn’t hold and they fell, breaking some of the elements (not so bad that I couldn’t glue stuff back on, thank goodness!). So I discarded the ribbon, went with the pop tabs and used small, clear Command hooks (stuck to wall, per instructions) to hang them. Finally!
