DIY Holiday Ornament Display

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:

Holiday Ornament Display

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.

    Love this, Sarah. The painting technique is awesome. Did you water down your white paint?

      Hi Jane! I didn’t water down the white paint, but I did distress it quite a bit with sand paper to give it a more weathered look. Thanks so much for stopping by!

  • Literally can’t stop smiling today because I’m SO excited to finally spill the beans about my candle with @antiquecandleco_ 😍😍 After months of working to find the perfect scent, we are thrilled to share that WARM CARAMEL CRUMBLE by Sarah Joy is coming this fall! 🍂🙌🏻 This candle is all about warm, gooey caramel, cinnamon-spiced maple, rich vanilla & baked green apples. It’s basically like heaven in a jar & I CANNOT wait for you to have this bake-y goodness in your home this fall! 🥧👏🏻
  • I finally got the botanical prints + old door project finished 🌿🙌🏻 What do you guys think?! It was kinda tricky figuring out where to hang these prints, but so many of you voted for this spot in stories & I think it’s perfect 👏🏻👏🏻 The floral prints are from @walmart & I LOVE them. I have an obsession with botanical artwork & these are my new favorite. This is all on the blog today & I also linked up a bunch of other botanical prints from Walmart here: http://liketk.it/2Ea9s #liketkit @liketoknow.it #ad #LTKhome
  • Spent the day in jammies, snuggling my sick kiddos + watching all of their favorite movies 😍 I hate seeing them sick, especially since we’re only a few days into the new school year, but I sure do love these simple days when they need me the most. Nothing else matters more than this right here ❤️👏🏻 http://liketk.it/2E8FG #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • Did a little switcheroo in my vanity area & added in a new rug 🙌🏻😍 I actually took it from the back deck, so it’s technically not new, but it sure adds a lot of pizazz to this spot, right?! Much more cozy now 👏🏻👏🏻 Do you move things around in your home from one room to another? I do it all the time & it’s an easy way to freshen things up without spending any money! http://liketk.it/2E70b #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKhome
  • My little kitchen island is one of my favorite things in our home + I always get so many questions about it. It was actually made from reclaimed barn wood & we’ve had it over 10 years now 😍😍 I bought it when we moved into our first home & it’s been with us ever since. I kinda have an emotional connection to it now—it’s been through so much with us. Do you have furniture like that?? I’ll probably still have this island in my kitchen when I’m an old granny! 👵🏻❤️
