Octoberfest is just a month away so I spent
all day Saturday (okay, I cleaned the house
and put laundry away first) on some plaques
for the sale. I had been making some
“Welcome Friends” plaques for porches
or front doors when it hit me that I made
some other plaques a few years ago that
were really cute…..the light bulb went off!
On the way home from work Friday
evening I stopped at the local craft store
(Hobby Lobby…gotta love it), and picked
up some things I would need for the new
plaques. I am thinking that these will be
good sellers since people will probably be
thinking Christmas gifts or decorations
while walking through the many tents of
Octoberfest. Or at least I try to think that far ahead.
Check out the new plaques. I think they
are so cute. For those of you who wish to
make some here is what you will need.
Ribbon or jute
And craft Christmas lights – flat
Stain the plaque and allow to dry
Paint your saying “Dear Santa ~ I can explain”
Glue on the light blubs
With black paint, paint a line attaching
With bonding glue attach jute to the back
This is not suitable for hanging outdoors.
