Joy Holiday Sign

Wow, It is December already and that means this is our last month for the 2016 Power Tool Challenge Team.  This month we decided to make something Holiday related and do a gift exchange with a few of the PTCT members.  I made this Joy Holiday Sign by repurposing a cabinet door.

This project could even be made without power tools, that is how easy it is to make.

I had this small cabinet door in my junk stash along with a thin piece of plywood.  I made a template to trace the JOY letters on the plywood and cut out using a jigsaw.  Or, you could go to your local craft store and purchase the wood letters.

I painted the cabinet door and the wood letters using Maison Blanche in the color cerise.  I then used a 50/50 mix of the color Maison White and water and did a white wash effect over the cerise.  I applied 2 coats of Silver organza over the wood letters and 1 coat of silver glitter varnish on the cabinet door.

I attached the Joy letters using wood glue and my air nailer.  Again, you could just use wood glue without the power tools.

Such a simple way to repurpose an item and add a simple Holiday Plaque to your Christmas Decor.  Make sure you stop over to visit the other ladies and what they made for the Holiday Challenge.  I will be receiving one of these fabulous items and I can’t wait to see what I receive.
