I've been neglecting the blog to hang out with my family over the past few weeks. I'm going to spend the day digging us out of the pile of junk that's accumulated over the break and putting away Christmas. First, I wanted to share a project with you.
I saw these really cute birthday boards at Lolly Jane Boutique and thought they would be fun gifts for our moms for Christmas. I'm thrilled how they turned out-my husband declared them the coolest thing I made so far.
This one was for my mom. I found the board and all the wooden people at Hobby Lobby. I stained the wood and then painted it white and finally roughed up the edges a bit. Then I cut out all the letters w/ my Cricut out of brown vinyl.
Here's the one I made for my other mother (MIL). She's not a fan of the distressed look, so I painted a board black. I cut the letters out of scrapbook paper and used Modge Podge to attach them. I printed the names and dates on yellow paper and modge podged them to little wooden disks.
Both moms were thrilled with their present.I'm linking up here.
