Repurpose: Festive Christmas Sign

This morning I knew I wanted to do a re-purpose project, but hadn't decided quite what I was going to do. I knew I had at least 20 minutes, while my kiddos were playing in their room. Usually I have a good 20 minutes and then the arguing starts in:> You know how it goes with littles. Anyways I have this sign that I got a few years ago in Washington. Now I was a proud army wife than and still am proud that my hubby served his country, but we are no longer in the army and have grown tired of this sign. I was originally going to donate it and then an idea came to me to re-purpose it. I mean we re-purpose clothes, why not an old wooden sign too.
Well now that I knew what I was going to do It needed to decide what Holiday theme I was going with for this sign. Being that there are only 2 more weeks till Halloween I decided to do a Christmas sign.
I traced the outline of the sign onto scrapbook paper and cut it out. This paper I already had on hand, which was awesome!

I busted out my Modge Podge and glued my scrapbook paper onto the wooden sign.

Next I cut out a white circle of paper. I had this metal welcome sign leftover in my craft stuff. I know I got it at DI last year, but I never knew what to do with it. Finally it has a purpose:>

I added two drops of hot glue, on each side of the metal welcome sign, to hold it in place.

I glued my knots onto each side of the sign
Add some green ribbon to the back for hanging (I hot glued mine in place)

and minus the bats I am feeling the Christmas spirit already!

This project didn't cost me a penny. Everything I used I already had in my craft closet.
Boy do I love re-purposing!!

Please check out Abbi over at Proverbs 31 living. She has a great segment on creating a Handmade Christmas, which she is starting this week. My goal for this holiday season is to try to have it handmade as much as possible. I will try to share my gift ideas as I make them, just in case anyone else is trying to do the same thing:> Happy Crafting!
