DIY Large Christmas Sign for $10

  • Hey yall! Hope you had a great weekend:) We returned from the beach on Saturday and laid low pretty much. Hallmark movies may or may not be taking over my life…I am ok with that though:) I did finish..( in no less then 2 days)…an amazing book my bff recommended…(she never fails with recommended reads…not once.) The book is called The Girl You Left Behind by Jojo Moyes. Oh my goodness….I couldn’t put it down…and hubs was thrilled that I brought it along on our mini-vaca…. #ornot… haha. Anywho, if you are looking for a book….get it today!!! The Girl You Left Behind: A Novel

    I have used the cheapo cedar fence parts before….long time ago when I made a art piece for my friend Patti. They are really affordable…possibilities are endless for small craft projects or large ones like this! I will show you the rest of the porch on Wednesday….but before I get to editing all those pics I wanted to share with you this very large Christmas sign that cost just under $10! An easy afternoon project too…would be such a nice gift to give too. I painted mine in candy cane stripes….but obviously you are only limited by your imagination. GO crazy I say! Here is how I put mine together and finished it to look a bit aged…DIY large Christmas sign $10 @cleverlyinspired (10)

    Beer Bread Gift in a Jar

    So….dang it’s hard to get out of pj’s after you’ve been in them for 5 days am I right?!?! Goodness we had a fabulously lazy Thanksgiving weekend. I love it when nothing is on the calendar and we can just chill….and chill we did. We decorated and baked and watched movies (A Gift Wrapped Christmas on Lifetime is a front runner right now for the sappiest and cutest Holiday movie…but of course time will tell..) Ahhhh….it was so much fun. Back to reality…sort of…hubs and I leave for the beach on Wednesday for a little R&R….excited to see the beach:)

    You know I am a sucker for a good party favor….I have done several in the past. I like to switch it up a bit:) Found this easy recipe for beer bread and some cool local brew bottles….a crowd pleaser too with the men and ladies;) These would make great neighbor gifts too…for not much cash:) I even did all the hard work for you and made you a printable to print out and attach:) I’m so nice….

Just print out the list (may want to enlarge a bit to make cutting easier:)….cut up the tasks….and put in 25 little envelopes or bags.

No need to number them….just put them in a bowl and let the kids open one each day (and don’t stress…if you want to save up the acts for a weekend do it!)
