I love to shop at local stores! This week I decided to stop in at Wood Creations in St George, Utah. I had never been there before, so I was excited to give it a shot! I took all three of my kids with me. That makes me nervous when I’m in a new craft store! You never know if there are breakables on bottom shelves or if people will give you the stink-eye when you walk by. I was so happy to find that the owner at Wood Creations was so sweet to my kids and they were welcome to be there with me while I shopped! They loved it there too! They even gave them cute, little lady bugs to take home! Below, you’ll see what I picked up! I got everything pictured for just under $10!
It was Wednesday and they were giving away one free letter. I grabbed a letter P. Next to the letters they had these unfinished candlesticks and they called my name! I also found a wood tag that I thought would make a good door hanger.
I decided to work on the letter and the candlesticks first. I had a simple plan for all three items. I decided to put some Aged Wood Accelerator from Varathane on them. Once they dried, I added them into my regular decor.
I added the candlesticks to either side of my family picture on my mantel. In this picture you can also see a brass vase that I got at the thrift store for 50 cents! I just love this corner of my mantel!
I put the letter P on a shelf with a picture my Mom painted. The picture is so pretty and I thought the P could complement it!
Next up, I had to paint the wooden tag! I decided to paint one side white and add some flowers and vinyl! I made a cut file with some flowers and I cut them out on card stock with my Silhouette Cameo 3. I arranged the pieces of paper on the tag and got out some matte Mod Podge. I used a brush to put some on the back of the paper like glue. Then I painted some Mod Podge over the top to seal the paper. I did two coats because it will be on my front door.
I added black vinyl lettering and some wired burlap ribbon. It makes me feel so happy for spring! This is just one side of the tag! The second side I decided to put chalkboard paint on! Now I can use it for anything I want!
I am looking forward to using it for birthday parties! I will also use it for parties to tell people to come right in or to ask people to knock because the baby is sleeping! I’m excited for all the possibilities!
