Welcome Home Christmas Blog Hop

One of my MOST FAVORITE vignettes from this year’s Christmas decoration was this one right here:


It’s rusty, it’s junky, it’s vintage, it’s DIY-y AND it’s Christmas-y, all rolled into one little corner of my living room.


Have I mentioned how much I love this vintage church attendance sign?  Only like, forty-leven times…


No?  Ok, good.


Please don’t get tired of it just yet because I have about a million more ideas for it.Unskinny_Boppy_Christmas_Home_Tour-113

I thought about doing some kind of bible verse (after all, it is a church sign), but then I stumbled upon this cute premade graphic by my favorite designer in the Silhouette store, Kolette Hall, and decided it would work perfectly for the look I was going for.  Plus it was only .50 cents this week!! WOOT!


First I cut out white letters, thinking I would mount them on black scrapbook paper….


But the thought of trying to get all those little letters perfectly straight sounded like torture.  Then it occurred to me that I could just cut out BLACK letters and mount the pre-cutout black paper onto some white paper for some quick reverse imaging that is perfectly straight every  time.

Easy peasy.  I used a glue stick on the white paper and slapped the black cutout on top, then placed the floating centers of the “A” “O” and “R”s in by hand.


I also used my Silhouette to make this cute Fa La La La La wood slice garland which makes me happy every single time I look at it!

You won’t believe how easy it was! You could totally shellac these suckers with some of Clark Griswold’s non-nutritive cereal varnish and keep them in the family forever.
