I’m aboard the Christmas Train and it’s whistling its way through to the North Pole. Its 5 weeks to Christmas and I’m excited as a grasshopper.

This year we are holding a small party at our teeny apartment by the creek and I thought a customized menu board would be great.

Turned a discarded piece of wood into a menu board and i’m really liking it.

A little on How:

1. painted a piece of wood with 2 coats of white paint and sanded it to get that country look

2. Once completely dry, did a little letter transferring  with Bright Instant Graphic Aid (Ready to transfer letters on any dust free medium)

3. After the transferring was done, I painted a rectangle, keeping margins, with chalkboard paint on the board

4. Hung some vintage Christmas lights on it.

5. I wish I could write how complicated it was but it isn’t. 4 steps to a fabulous Christmas menu Board it is!

173 words, this must be my one and only post with such a gigantic word count!

Anywho, likey?

  1. This looks great, what a fun idea to have a menu board for a party! I only have a chalkboard-type thingy stuck to my fridge. Not as fun as an actual board with a country look.
