Christmas Tree For Sale Sign- Dare to Deck the Halls

Today is the last day of the Dare to DIY 2014.   I had one million "deck the halls" DIY ideas for this holiday season and I accomplished like three of them. Womp. Womp. (Darn viruses and weakling immune system.)  I did made a quirky gnome, a lighted marquee and this lovely Christmas tree sign.

I'm calling that a win.

I've had my eye on this Christmas Tree sign for quite a few months.  I knew a knock off would look perfect in our kitchen.

I didn't take any step-by-step photos. (Because I was rushing against Mother Nature's need to get dark at 2pm. Rude.) I grabbed a piece of wood from our garage.  I gave it a quick coat of white paint. I then grabbed a small container of black paint and gave it a couple of shakes. I poured a little of that black paint (which was actually a greenish because it wasn't mixed well) and combined it with some water.  I brushed on the water/paint mixture and then wiped it off with a paper towel.  This resulted in the dirty finish on the sign.  I cut out the letters using my Silhouette. I hand painted the trees.  Bam. Sign complete.

The sign added just the right amount of quirk to our kitchen holiday decor.

I'll finally have my house tours up starting tomorrow.  (You know, when the rest of the blog world is posting about Fourth of July ideas.)  I can't wait to share the rest of the kitchen and our house (inside and out!).  And there are even some Ike photo bombs.
