Knocked-Off PB NOEL sign (Again!)

I change my mind – a lot.

I will see or come up with an idea that I think is totally awesome and I’ll make it – then I sit and look at it and it all of a sudden it isn’t as awesome as I thought it was in the first place. Am I the only one that does that?

Anyway – Remember this NOEL sign I made:

Christmas Noel

I loved it – but then it didn’t really make the statement I was looking for – so I changed it up a bit!
I used Gold Glitter Paint and sprayed on a layer -

It was SO much better – and I put it up for a couple days but then – once again it just didn’t make the statement I was going for.  Then I was at my SIL house and saw some letters that I knew would make the statement I was going for – So off to Hobby Lobby I went -

I can home and put it together just like I did hereand la la la LOVE it -
I decided to go with a red glitter – so I painted it red first and then added the red glitter -

So much better right? RIGHT!! I triple puffy {Heart} the letters and the red glitter is the perfect touch!
I also like that the letters are thinner and that it closer resembles the PB one.

Don’t you love this one so much more!!??
 


I still loved the gold one but this one fits my décor so much better – but I didn’t just want to trash the Gold one – Then my sister was at my house and saw the gold one and guess what? It totally fits her décor – so she took it home and put it on her shelf – and it looks so great! So really – it was a win win for everyone!!

What projects have you redone?
