After fencing off a portion of our yard, we had a big pile of scrap wood. I wanted to do something with it, so I figured I would use what we have and make some art.
All the pieces started off looking like this:
I have three chocolate brown and light blue candle plates that I wasn’t showcasing as I had hoped, so I painted the wood white and adhered the plates to the wood.
I’ve signed up for a Spring Swap at Bakow Babble, so I thought I’d start making a door hanging for my swap partner. I don’t know who my partner is yet, but when I find out, I’ll add their name to this black sign.
After I decoupage the green leaves onto the black sign, I’ll add some varnish to help the sign stand up to the April wind.
The last piece of wood I painted blue. I plan to make a “welcome baby” sign for my friend who is having a boy.
I will post pictures of the completed signs in the next few weeks.
