Handpainted CHALET sign for the front door:
Some winter door decor that's not a wreath:
Our house is the farthest thing from a chalet but we can pretend for a few weeks!
I was inspired by this picture from Pinterest:
I added the sign and used burlap in place of ribbon.
Here's how I made the door decor:
1. Cut wood scrap, paint off white.
Print letters to fit wood piece:
2. Place letters on wood, trace with ballpoint pen which leaves an indent in wood:
3. Paint inside the indent:
4. Add border:
5. Sand to distress:
6. Use green paint to highlight letters:
7. Stain with Minwax Early American.
Seal with satin poly.
8. Attach pinecones to burlap strips with wire.
Secure with white bias cut strips:
Welcome to our chalet!
Ready for winter.
