I cut the letters out using a band saw.
I actually made 3 sets of the letters because I had 3 grapevine wreaths and enough scrap wood.
I sanded the rough edges and gave the letters a few coats of red paint.
After the paint was dry, I sanded the edges again to give the letters a distressed look.
Then I removed the decorations from the grapevine wreaths, added them to the wood letters
and the word NOEL was complete.
I was thinking that in February I could make a "V" and use the L, E and wreath
to spell the word LOVE for a Valentines vignette.
What do you think?
I have a set on my mantle. I took a set to my booth and I have a set available in my Etsy shop here.
