Hi there! I am so excited to be guest posting here at the CSI Project today! My name is Trish and you can find me blogging at Mom On Timeout. I love sharing favorite recipes, DIY projects and fun crafts for the kiddos.
Today I am excited to share a little winter craft project with all of you. My house has been so drab and desolate since all the pretty Christmas decor came down last week. I had some leftover flooring in my garage that needed to be used up (you know how that is!). I did a quick coat of white spray paint – and I mean quick! I wanted a very rustic look to the sign and achieved that with just partial coverage of the paint.
Using an electronic cutter, I cut out the phrase “Let It Snow” onto teal cardstock (my favorite color!). Don’t have a cutter? Neither did I until a few weeks ago. The solution is simple. Go to your computer and find a font you like. Type in your phrase and enlarge it to the appropriate size. Print it out. Lay your print out on top of card stock or any other paper you want to use. Secure it and cut out the letters using a craft knife. Time consuming? Yes! But it works and I have done it successfully many times.
Enter my new love – foil snowflakes! This sign needed a little shine so these babies are going to do the trick. I cut out three snowflakes to use on the sign.
After everything was nice and dry I gave the sign a quick coat using Polyurethane spray and threaded a ribbon through the holes. I think it turned out super sweet and adds a little sparkle and color to my winter decor!
Thanks so much for having me today and I hope you’ll come visit me at Mom On Timeout!
