Even though I live in Canada, I have never really gotten used to the cold, snow and short winter days.  Sometimes it just feels a little dreary.

I wanted a new sign that could be outside and brighten it up.

These wood slices were left over from Christmas ornaments and they were exactly what I needed for this project.Wood slices and Fusion Metallics in Pearl Let me insert here that the twine in the photo above ended up not being used in the final sign.  It was one of those rare times when I changed things up a bit while I was working…

Back to the sign…reclaimed wood painted with Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint in Flow BlueI grabbed a piece of salvaged wood and gave it a coat of Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint in Flow Blue.  Flow Blue is a gorgeous, bright blue that looks antiquey and so pretty with white. Wood slices painted with Metallic Pearl paint with blue lettersThe wood slices got a chunky coat of Fusion Mineral Paint Metallics in Pearl.  Pearl has a lovely sheen to it that sparkles and shines in the sunshine.

Let It Snow was spelled out on the wood slices in the Flow Blue.  attaching eye hooks to reclaimed woodWith wood slices painted in the Pearly white, they look like little snowballs.

To hang them, each was measured and looped through an eye hook.  Eye hooks used for hanging wood slices from reclaimed woodSnowflakes were added to the long board painted with the Pearl.

I love how the little snowflakes look like they are falling onto the Let It Snow. snowflake painted on reclaimed wood and snow
