Pallet Snowflake Wreath

Pallet Snowflake Wreath

I needed new wreaths for my front door and wanted to do something different that green type wreaths. Hubby had a pallet in his truck from his brother and I said, could you cut out the boards.  I need them.

We cut, nailed and painted and then that pallet became this.

I had seen something similar on Pinterest and made it my way. I used things from the Dollar Tree and some ribbon from last year. 

Here's how I made them:
  • Hubby cut the pallet boards out with out having to remove any nails. 
    If you cut down the middle of the pallet board, you will get boards and you don't have to remove any nails.
  • Hubby nailed the four boards together
    It was easier to nail four boards together and then cut out the circle, since some of the boards are different heights, hubby made sure they would not come apart.  Hubby does get carried away with nails.
  • I used a large bucket for the circle. 
  • Hubby then cut out the circle

He wanted to make sure it didn't come undone. I don't think there is a chance.

  • Paint them black
    I painted them black. I had some high gloss black paint and gave it two coats. (Sorry no pic)
  • Add decor
    I hand did the letters with some white paint. For the "O" I used a plastic snowflake that I got at the Dollar Tree, it was a two pack.  I glued it in with superglue and then put a tack at the top where the hole was. Now I know it won't come off.

    For around the outside, I had some snowflakes that I got at Hobby Lobby on sale.  Even though they were stick-ons, I still added some superglue. I used the smaller ones.

I made a bow from ribbon left over from last year. The greenery was free and the white items came from the Dollar Tree.

  All in, it cost about $5 for both wreaths. 

Here they are on my front door.

My friend gave me this Santa so he went into my sleigh. I have him under the roof so he won't get wet. He is so cute.

Quick and Easy Christmas Centerpiece

Quick and Easy Christmas Centerpiece

Need something on your side table, coffee table, or anywhere, why not create a cranberry candle centerpiece. I needed three for the round tables that we set up on our deck for our annual Christmas party. I knew I wanted candles, but didn't want to spend a lot and I didn't want them to take up too much room. 

I looked in my stash and the fridge to see what might work. This is what I came up with.

Merry Christmas to All!

As friends and family arrive, we are having a wonderful time reconnecting and laughing. We are off to church in a few hours and then more Christmas celebrations. 

I am taking time off to spend with family and friends so I wanted to take a moment to wish everyone a Merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas to All
and to all
a Good Night!

May the joy of the holidays be with you and your family.
See you in the new year.

Cheering up the light

I am continuing my Christmas decorating on the cheap at our other home. I made the JOY banner, the book page banners for the windows and now for the dining room light. 

This was very easy and rather cheap. I saw this light decorated on Pinterest for Christmas and for some reason it stayed with me. So when I had finished my banners, the light looked so plain. I still had some berries left and the light called to me.
