Roasted Chestnuts and Nippy Noses

Dreamy Burlap and Window Christmas Sign
There's just something so wonderfully old-fashioned about this white and burlap sign framed by a chippy window. I think I'm in love!

It all started with the need for Christmas items at our booth and not much time to put them together. I had cut a stencil for this Christmas sign but never had a chance to make the actual pallet sign. Knowing I was short on Christmas items, I just had to put together a few more before I went to revamp my booth. So, I made the trip out to my garage. Low and behold, this chippy white window was waiting for me. The panes and dividers were nearly falling out and needed to be removed anyway, so in the house it went...

Just so happened it was the perfect size for my stencil. Out came the burlap and the Vintage White paint. A quick fold and staple on the back of the window and this gorgeous, dreamy Christmas sign was born!

I left a few rusty nails in the window for character...

I added some garland to a white bundt pan for staging the photo. (Yep-had another one of those hanging around the house!) You may remember I mentioned I have a slight problem when I showed off our Bundt Pan Punkin'. Thank goodness for my slight obsession. It made for a nice little tree when I didn't have one handy!

And a handful of vintage white ornaments to complete the scene...

I'm super glad that neither Eric nor myself had the chance to make that pallet sign because I love this version so much better! :)

Now that I got my booth ready for Christmas and I'm posting about these projects, I'm really getting in the mood. Might have to do the decorating a little early this year... ;)
