Recycling for Christmas....

So, here is a photo of my DIY foyer ceiling. It's tongue and groove pine planks.

Off the subject? Well, NO.

These are the little end cuts from when I installed the ceiling. Cute, don't ya think? I have a whole gob of them.

Armed with an assortment of holiday paper, stamps, buttons, paint, Mod Podge, ribbon, etc... those little wood ceiling blanks became....

great little vignette accents around the house

swag embellishments

Those are darling and I'm bet'n that made a huge mess in your studio.

I have some old tongue and groove boards but my saw needs a new blade..kinda creeped out to do it myself and darling Bob is more of a techie guy than a handy guy.

These are nice and lightweight pine planks, about 3" wide, cut to 4" long.
Lots of creative mess, but very, very fun to create in miniature.

Sanded the edges a bit and painted them in cream acrylic paint. Once dry, I sanded some a bit more to distress. Some I drybrushed with brown or muddy-green paint. Perfect stack of little blank canvases!
