joy to the world ~ wood slice project ♥

Christmas is next week!
these past few weeks flew by ...
i just wanted to say thank you thank you thank you ... for the love & support given to my blog and my shop ♥ it puts so much gladness in my heart to hear that God is encouraging you through this little place here in bloggy land, and i really appreciate all of you so much!

i spent some time last week putting up a few new Christmas decorations
and this wood slice art is one of  the things i wanted to try ... so here it is!

the wood slice is from AC Moore
the wooden letters are from Michael's
i found a huge box of maps at a rummage sale,  and i bought the whole thing for $7!
( i ♥ rummage sales with big boxes of maps)

i mod podged the map onto the wood, 
when it was dry, went over the top with two more coats for a shiny finish

once you cut the twine to fit, string the letters and wrap the ends around to the back of the wood ... just a little dab of hot glue and some felt will hold it like Fort Knox

super easy project with just a few supplies ... i love the simplicity of it
hope to be back this week with a few pictures of my craft room ... Christmas style :)
much love & happy crafting ♥

      I am so VERY thankful for you and your inspirational site! I hope you and yours have a blessed Christmas!
