Hello again friends!
I have just finished decking the halls at my house and now I have time to share what I’ve been up to!
Today, I am going to show you how I made this Comfort and Joy sign that I hung above my piano.
I have been struggling to find the right piece of decor to hang over my piano for quite some time. I just can’t commit to anything. For now, I thought I’d add a festive sign but wanted to stay in the gold, black and green color palette to match the rest of the room. So, I made this sign!
Look at it closely. Can you see how much work I put into this?
Walmart gift bag? YES!!!
I found this cute gift bag at Walmart and snatched it up knowing I could make a sign out of it. I didn’t realize until I got it home that the sides had a beautiful pattern on it, too.
I started this craft as I usually do…with no clue how to get what was in my head to a finished product. I went through my stash of picture frames but didn’t have the right size. I found a pretty gold frame that was almost perfect at a thrift store for $3 plus 20% off on Black Friday.
I began by cutting the bag a little larger than the frame. I then gently removed the handle from the side I chose to use. (this bag has the saying on both sides…so you could get two signs out of it)
To get an even edge, I folded the paper over until it fit snugly inside my frame.
I know, you thought I really worked hard on this craft. I did. I worked smarter, not harder. This project costs me about $6 and only a few minutes.
I thought the sign was so classy that I gave my little owl friend a golden bow to wear around his neck.
And another cheap and easy DIY is finished!
I appreciate you so much for stopping by Mulch and Paint today! I hope to have a few more DIYs like this coming soon. Stay tuned!
Until next time,
