It certainly wasn’t on my to do list and not even an inkling in my head 3 days ago until I saw the inspiration starting point. Perhaps it was a “squirrel” moment but I actually think
it was just heeding the inspiration when it struck me.
8 pieces of old barn wood, a few cuts and I had the back created. Found a pre cut “holder” for it and had a spare board left over that was too short.
A trip up to the garage loft netted me a couple of options for left over tin. Then I had to ask for help. Holy smokes cutting that old tin is not an easy task at all. A bit of spray paint and dry time.
That was yesterday and then this evening we used shingle nails to attach the tree to the board. I pre cut garland and stuck it around. My other half had surprised me and picked up a battery powered indoor outdoor set of mini lights. We may have had a spare set but the Christmas stuff isn’t unearthed yet so this was so much easier. Staples the lights on. Trialed a couple of different words and then went for it with a black marker. Done. Just like that.
A rustic little outdoor sign. I’m not certain where it will live quite yet but I bet inspiration will strike.
I know without a doubt there were other things on the list that had a higher priority but it was just such a fun little project!
