Today’s post is sponsored by The Home Depot.
All right my friends, today is the day I get to reveal to you the DIY Holiday Ornament Display I’ve created for the #DIHWorkshop online Virtual Party in partnership with The Home Depot! In last week’s announcement I told you that I’ve joined a great group of bloggers across the nation to bring you a fun and DIY-friendly ornament display in an effort to spread the word about Home Depot’s DIH free workshops. Everyone was asked to put their own unique spin on the project, so I’m excited to show you how mine turned out. And like I told you last week, you can sign up for your local Home Depot’s upcoming DIH workshop to learn how to make your own custom ornament display. Ok, let’s get to the good stuff. Here’s a reminder of the inspiration for this project from Home Depot:
We were asked to get creative with it and customize the sign to our style. I was really hankering to make a sign with a large wreath, so this is what I came up with!
Assembling the boards for this sign was very easy–I’d say that part of the project took about 30 minutes to complete. The folks at Home Depot will show you exactly how to do it at the DIH workshop, but it was very simple. After that part was built I actually spray painted it black and then went over that with white paint. Doing the black spray paint first helped give the wood a more aged look when I sanded it down. Easy peasy. Next up was the fun part: designing the sign!
I decided to use the miniature ornaments from Home Depot to create a festive spin on NOEL. I just painted the letters and then hot glued the ornaments directly to the wood.
Home Depot has a great selection of wreaths, so I really wanted to use one of them on my sign. I found this one with the farmhouse style bow and I was completely smitten. Isn’t it absolutely gorgeous?! This is their 30″ Snowy Pine Wreath with Pinecones and Berries if you’re interested in checking it out.
This sign was easy to put together and the base of it only cost about $30 in materials. And this baby is huge! I put it on the mantel for now but you know me, I’ll probably move it around a few more times before the season is over. The thing I love about this sign and the DIH workshop is that you can get as creative as you want with it–that’s the beauty of DIY. If you haven’t been to one of your local Home Depot’s workshops yet, I would definitely recommend it. Here’s all the registration info for the upcoming DIH Workshop. And the best part? It’s FREE. Boom.
