A SIGN FROM AN OLD PIECE OF RUSTY TIN AND AN OLD WOODEN FRAME
Hi welcome, I'll pour you a cold glass of milk and serve you some yummy chocolate white chip cookies and you won't have to pay the nickel! Cookies are a favorite here at Sweet Tea N' Salty Air. So I thought I would make a cookie sign out of an old rusty piece of tin that I had stashed along with an old wooden frame that would go with my Farmhouse style kitchen.
After attaching the tin to the frame I used a platter to get the right shape I was looking for. I had to trim the tin to fit in the frame so I made a tin bow for the sign. I never knew how easy it was to cut tin, I used a pair of regular scissors.
Of course after everyone seen the sign they just had to have some cookies and this gang here does not like store bought so I made some yummy chocolate/white chip cookies.
When working with tin such as the bow here be careful it is very sharp and I have the cut to prove it.
I wanted to paint this sign with vintage style in mind and also something that would not only be for Christmas.
Got some old stuff around you can make a sign from , give it a try.......mine is not perfect, heke if I want perfect I 'll buy a sign from Target ! Homemade is always better. Thank you so much sweet readers for letting me share my Cookie sign with you! Have a wonderful weekend

Welcome...hope I find everyone enjoying everything Fall has to offer...as I see it I think that it may be everyones very favorite season. Here in Florida we have no changing leaves or Acorns but we do have some magnificent pinecones and a recent discovery of The Florida paper tree. My daughter and her friends went to the woods to gather some wood for the outdoor fire pit and as I was passing the wagon of cut logs I noticed they resembled birch tree a bit so I went and checked it out better. One of the logs was peeling apart oh I thought this is very cool so I grabbed a few logs and brought them on in the house I peeled one apart.
I thought I would try a couple of things first I covered a old floor board entirely. I used wood glue.
So I crafted this lodge sign just using some stencils and paint and attached these two?, sorry they look like a type of pine cone they were interesting so I gathered some.
Then I thought I would peel off some big enough pieces to wrap around just a typica…
Hello there......looking for a wonderful inexpensive Holiday Craft?? I have just the thing to gather the whole family around the table, serve a little hot cocoa and some cookies and it's a party! This is all you will need to get this party started......
Some basic white paper, scissors, glitter and some glue. The glue you will want to paint the finished snowflakes with but we did add a little water to it. I am so a magazine saver, this is an old one "Martha Stewart Kids", If you follow the numbered steps and besure to get a good fold the results areendless.
It is true no two snowflakes are a like! Once you get a "shovel" full its time to bring them to the glitter box, just a shallow box to sprinkle glitter, before that just a couple brushes of glue which we did in a different box then the glitter.
This is just one cut but once you follow steps 1-5 you can make your own cuts !
