Wooden Sign

This week I have been using some scraps of wood to make a Christmas sign.  When I started I had the wood and some paint.  Then I let my creativity take over and this is what I was left with.  I couldn't get the pictures to capture the full beauty of these little things, but you will get the idea.

I started with some scraps of wood that I painted a red color, except for the front side.

Then I Mod-Podged (not sure if that's a word, but it is in my dictionary) some tissue paper with gold snow flakes on it to the front.  I printed large letters from the computer onto card stock paper and painted them black.  These went on top of the tissue paper, again with Mod Podge.  I put this picture in B & W to make the pattern more visible.

Then I did Joyeux. This is an illustration of how I did the word and the letters in Noel.

I added some lace to the block of wood and put some berries and greenery on the top.

Then I added some to the NOEL pieces.
