recycled wood ornaments

I make home accents using new and reclaimed wood.  Last year as I was cleaning out my garage I came upon lots of little wood pieces that I couldn't throw out or burn.
So I made these little Christmas decorations with all that scrap wood.
I cut the wood into squares or rectangles and brushed a bit of cream paint on them (not so neatly).
Sanded them a bit on the edges & printed the holiday words with my cricut.
Once the words were placed I brushed mod podge over them.

screw in a little eye hook on top and embellish with twine & a wooden star

I also made some little word blocks.




  A little rustic charm for the holidays.

Holly- I Love your home tour- beautiful! Can you tell me the paint color in your foyer?

Holly said...

The paint color in my foyer is Benjamin Moore - Woodstock Tan. I love it. Another favorite is Northampton Putty and Providence Olive - both Ben Moore. :)

Hi Holly, I found this post through the Facebook comment/link from Donna. Love these ornaments. I know nothing about the Cricut thingy (have seen it in the store though). The letters look great ... love that font.

Holly I love these, I had them pinned since last year. Where can I get the vinyl words that you cut with your cricut? Do you have a shop where you could sell me some? Thanks

Adorable, Holly! Every once in a while I think I need a vinyl cutter and then I see these and I want one again. Happy weekend my friend.
