Count Your Blessings Board

I’m STOKED to share with you guys the adorable hanging we did for our craft night last week.

It really is super simple to do and can be done in any color to match your home. It also is very inexpensive and would make a great gift idea for Christmas, Mother’s Day or even a birthday!

COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS BOARD

Cute and Inexpensive Count Your Blessings Board - great gift idea! Tutorial on { lilluna.com }



Here’s how you can make it…

SUPPLIES:

-Bead board/Wood
-Hard board
-Saw
-Scrapbook Paper
-Mod Podge
-Foam Brush
-Vinyl
-Paint
-Small Clothespins
-Embellishments

DIRECTIONS:

1. Cut your bead board to approximately 12 inches x 20 inches. Also cut your hardboard into 4 pieces that are approx. 4.5 x 6.5 inches. You will also need one hardboard piece that is approx. 2.5 inches x 12 inches.
2. Paint your beadboard piece and let dry.
3. Cut our 4 pieces of scrapbook paper that are approx. the same size of your 4 rectangular pieces. Mod podge these on to the rectangles and let dry. You will also cut out one piece of scrapbook paper that will go onto the long rectangular piece. Mod podge this on as well.
4. Distress beadboard and hardboard if desired.
5. Hot glue all 5 rectangular pieces to your beadboard.
6. Add vinyl to rectangular piece
7. Add ribbon to back. I used wood for the sample instead of bead board and to add vinyl I marked the center on the back and then marked a spot 3 inches on either side. I think stapled ribbon to the back using my staple gun and then tied a knot. For the bead board We drilled holes through the top and had them string the ribbon through.
8. Now add embellishments and hot glue mini clothespins to the tops.
And what’s best is depending on the paint or scrapbook paper and embellishments each board is so personalized and different!
NOTE: You can even put the vinyl straight to the board if it’s flat.
For another cheap option cut up some bead board for the back board to make it less expensive.

    Lil' Luna, what kind of vinyl do you mean for the 'count your blessings' sign?

    Darling! In fact I'm doing a super saturday soon and was wondering did you have everyone bring their own scrapbook paper, paint and embelishments or did you just have all the stuff to choose from? Thanks
