CW: Noel Christmas Decor

Hey everyone! I’m Amanda from Every Creative Endeavor and I am so excited to be here today for Creativity Week! Kim and I started blogging around the same time so it is always fun to be here and post a little something on her blog! Today I thought I would spread a little Christmas Cheer with a super easy project!
I was browsing the Pottery Barn website looking for some inspiration when I saw this:


It is darling – only, it comes with a price tag of $149.00 – that is not so darling so I decided I would make my own!

I love these letters from Hobby Lobby so I decided I would use them for my wall art. They are $2.99 each but I got them on sale for 50% off! (of course!!) so I spent $6!


I set them up the way I wanted them and then hot glued the parts that touch together -


I flipped it over and added a bracket so I could hang it up if I wanted too -


Then using my staple gun I stapled the letters together. It worked perfect for the spots where just a little bit of the letters were touching.


I then used Krylon’s Stainless Steel Spray Paint and sprayed the whole thing. The can of paint was $8 but I used a 40% off coupon and got it for about $5!


The PB’s is bronze but I don’t have a lot of bronze in my Holiday décor so I chose a shiny silvery color instead – I am so glad I went with Silver – I love it!!


Throw in some Christmas red and green and it looks perfect!

Not bad for $11!! and it’s even a color that goes with my décor! You gotta love that! It’s been fun sharing my project with you! I’d love if you would stop by and see what else I have been working on! I also have a giveaway going on right now for the Creative Carousel Collaboration with Three prize packages worth over $150 each! Some of my other projects include:

Thanks again Kim for letting me be apart of Creativity Week!

Thanks for stopping by today Amanda!  I'm loving this and it looks really easy.  Maybe I need to add this to my mantle decor!
