Wooden Spring Sign

There's still time to enter so don't miss out! 

Our front door was looking a little drab and it needed something to brighten it up.  I went to the craft store thinking that I would make some kind of wreath, but then I founds these wooden letters and had a different idea!

I cut squares of scrap paper to cover each letter.  I glued the letters to the paper, then used my X-acto knife to cut around the letters.  I sealed the paper on top using modge podge. 

Next I connected each letter using chain and my glue gun.

I added a pretty flower to the top and made a loop with a piece of string to use for hanging.

Here's a closer look at the letters -

Normally I would worry about this getting ruined being outside - but we have a glass storm door so it will be protected from the elements
