We wanted to create a shelf sitter that did double duty. We saw several similar on Pinterest. Here is our version.
We used scrapbook paper and decoupaged all the 2×4’s. The sides were painted black. The bottom 2×4 was painted black except the sides that have Thanksgiving and Christmas on them.
Here are some pictures I took during the process. We had to decide which scrapbook papers to use that would look good up against each other. We staggered the heights to add interest and make it look “HAPPY” and “MERRY”.
I printed the HAPPY and MERRY font off PicMonkey and Mom traced them onto wood and then cut them out. We had to buy letters that would fit sideways for the THANKSGIVING and CHRISTMAS too. We found these at Hobby Lobby.
I had to add “snow” all around the red letters to make them stand out on the word “Merry”.
It did take awhile to work on this project. But when you think that it does double duty, it was worth it.
Thanksgiving SPECIFIC decorations often get overlooked because we buy overall FALL decor or go straight into Halloween and then straight into Christmas. I am glad this shelf sitter gives Thanksgiving a spotlight.
Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. Remember CRAFTY is great THERAPY!
