Holiday décor is a must in our house, and so is repurposing. Recently, a good friend of mine gave me a bunch of old wooden pieces from some old planter boxes in her backyard, and they were full of artistic potential! I love how weathered and distressed they are, so I decided to use a couple of them to make some quick and easy holiday boards. Place your holiday boards on the mantle or bookshelf, or try adding some wire or ribbon to hang them on the door or a wall.
To begin, I painted the front of each board with a rough coat of gesso. Allow the boards to dry. Attach pieces of decorative paper tape to the bottom edge of each board. Glue pieces of torn vintage paper to the left edge of each board. Tear some rectangle shaped strips of Cavallini paper and glue them onto each board. Stamp some holiday images from the Christine Adolph holiday cube stamp onto the boards. I used the square script image on the right edges of each board, and the tree and snowflake images for the left edges. Attach some small strips of lace tape to each board for a little feminine, shabby touch. On the stamped tree image, glue a small bow that can be easily created using red scrappers floss.
