Spring Boxwood Table Decoration

Spring Boxwood Table Decoration Made with Scrap Wood from Denise on a Whim
With the warmer temperatures we've been having the past few days,
(which are wonderful, by the way!!)
it seems like a great time to share with you this scrap wood spring table decoration I made.
I took a couple of wood scraps, one slightly less wide than the other,
and put dark aging wax on them to deepen the color.
Next I screwed the shorter one onto the longer one
so that the longer piece would make a stand of sorts
and the shorter piece would be a sign.

I purchased some metal stencils not long ago from Decor Steals.
They're really nice to have around because I'm using them both as decoration on a shelf
and as painting stencils like I did on this piece.

I chose the word bloom to stencil on the wood in a very pale cream color.
I seem to be on a kick lately with the word.
Check out my last sign if you want to find out why it's a word I can't get enough of this spring.

After the letters were stenciled on, I added some boxwood at the base with hot glue.

It's turned out to be one of me new favorite spring decorations this year!

Your comments make me smile :) 'Til next time!
