12 Days of Christmas Crafts #12: Easy Chrismas Decor

Craft #12: Easy Christmas Decoration; Painted Words

Absolutely THE easiet thing to do!!

1. Decide what word you would like to display
2. Buy wooden letters at craft store (or walmart)
3. Paint them whatever color you would like


I like the word I bought J, O, and Y :)

Next I painted them fire engine red using acrylic paint.

After they dried, I sprayed them with red glitter for a pretty shimmer :)

So pretty!

That's it!

And here they are, above my doorway...before I added the berries.

...and with the berries...better.

Now my finished product. I love my simple decorations :)

P.S. If you like that Santa photo, you can get it here!

Oh, and please pay no attention to the junk in my kitchen :/  haha
