I am a copy cat!


Have you seen these in the new Pottery Barn catalog?

Well my daughter has and loves them. So I have been looking, at all my local craft stores , for wood cut outs of a peace sign. No luck...so I had some foam board that we used for a recent project and it got me to thinking...


I printed out a couple of different sizes of peace signs. Using my pumpkin poker I poked the design into the foam board.


I then used a box knife to cut out the peace sign. Used a bit of sandpaper to smooth the edges. Spray painted both sides with silver spray paint. After that dried I sprayed on some adhesive and sprinkled my super fine silver glitter.


And walla!


Not perfect yet but after a few more I bet they will do.



Perfect for Hannah and her Christmas ornament exchange parties this year!

Hope over to Today's Creative Blog  and A Soft Place to Land for more great ideas!
