A Creative November: M & Em Signs

I'm excited to introduce my next guest posters because they're one of my favorite new discoveries in the past couple months!!

Emily and Melanie are girls after my own hearts who take awesome pieces of wood and make them into fabulous signs over at M & Em Signs!!!
I stumbled upon them through Facebook and love seeing the new designs they come up with and they offered to share a quick tutorial on a unique sign they recently put together!!

So sit back, get comfy & enjoy :)

We’ve been plugging away at M and Em Signs and have a really cute unique way to display your Christmas cards!
 We found these antique drying racks on our way home from a scrapbook retreat and had to have them.

We bought them without a plan but have come up with some really cute uses. Our Good Tidings Christmas card display racks go for $60. But the beauty of these things is that they are double sided so we can make them usable for the rest of the year with a favorite phrase, kids art work display, stencil, the possibilities are endless. I am so excited to use mine this season!

Now for a quick how-to:

Step One- Cut the stencil out of contact paper on the cricut

Step Two: Line the stencil up in position using measurements and small pencil marks.

Step Three: Using a sponge roller, apply a light coat of paint over the top of the stencil.

Step Four: We apply eye hooks and wire and it's ready to display your holiday greeting cards with Good Tidings from all your friends and family!

For more amazing inspiration and fabulous hand-made signs, check them out on their facebook page and be sure to leave them some love!

Don't forget to link up your own holiday projects on my facebook page so we can see what you've been up too!
I"ll be featuring my favorites at the end of the week :)
