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.
