Here is sign number three, along with my little chipboard boxes. I love the way that music paper fits into Christmas decor! I embossed the words on the paper first, then used Modge Podge for the whole thing to adhere it to the wood and then to seal it. I want something red in the middle of that bow but I haven't found just the right thing yet so the sign went up anyway because I needed to get it off my counter!
I didn't do the fancy shaping on the bottom of the wood - I managed to pick it up at a second hand store, coated in green paint. I painted it black, then added a coat of off white, and covered it all with ebony stain for an old and weathered look. It was an inexpensive, easy, fun and satisfying project!
