Frugal Friday – Friendship/Garden Sign
Welcome to Frugal Friday at The Little Brown House!
If you have come here before, you may know about my love of cabinet
doors. I get them at the Habitat for Humanity Reuse store for a couple of
dollars each, and have used them for a few projects-
You can see this sign here: Family Established Sign
And this one here: Good and Perfect Sign
Well I have made yet another cabinet door sign I think you may like –
The best thing about this one is that the vinyl saying came from the
Dollar Tree – making this a very frugal craft project!
I started out with an old ugly cabinet door -
I think it is pine. Anyway, it was small and I wasn’t sure what I
wanted to do with it until a couple of weeks ago.
I decided to paint it black – as most of you know I have been going through
a “Black and White” phase!
It has a little knothole in it, but for some reason that doesn’t bother me.
But after I painted it, I realized that the Dollar Store vinyl I was using
had black lettering. Which wasn’t going to show up well on my black
cabinet door! So I decided to paint the inside an off-white -
Now it will work!
I simply peeled off the vinyl backing and stuck it in the center of the board -
Then I took a ribbon and stapled it to the back to be used to hang it.
And I ended up with a sign that would look adorable inside a home,
but also super cute on the outside next to a patio or garden area!
And it only cost around $3 to make!
I am planning on making another one for myself – but I decided
to give this one to my fave sister for her birthday!
Ok, calm down the rest of you sis’s – I guess you are all my faves!
I also included another Coffee Wreath in my gift to her -
So here are two gifts I made myself for a total of $5!!
I added a gift card to it, cause she is my sis-
but I know she would have been happy with just these.
So be thinking about this kind of craft for any events you have
coming up that require a gift, and don’t forget Christmas is
just around the corner! I will have to come up with something
new for this sister though!
Thanks so much for stopping by The House – be sure and check
out these other parties I am hooking up to!
