Cristmas Card Fun

This piece of wood has such great color and character all to itself so why paint it!? I wanted to do something Christmas-y with it, and one of my favorite things is Christmas cards! So I took that wirey hooky thing off and Added a vintage clip to cover the hole. Then I traced a circle in pencil with my trash bucket;)

Obviously I sanded it down...
Then I went to work painting a wreath on it. I used white paint and did branch like somethings wrapping around the circle I traced...

Then I stenciled the word JOY over it...I had to do it in white first, let it dry, then red over the top. Otherwise the red wouldn't be bright on the brown wood.

I used a string of jute on the clip and on the top through two holes....To hang and to hang the CHRISTMAS CARDS!
