Holiday Door Bling

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.. ok not really but I would love it too!  So I have started thinking about simple ways to decorate the house on a dime!  That being said I made some cute holiday signs for the kids bedroom doors.  

They cost about $2 from AC Moore and I used scrapbook paper that I have been using for some other projects. 

Here is a VERY quick tutorial!

Start with the plaque shape of your choice.  I chose a rectangle with fancy corners.

Use paint and scrapbook paper to decorate the plaque, I chose red and off white paint with a Christmas tree and presents.

Bust out with the trusy Cricut if you have one available and print out the phrase "Dear Santa, Will Trade Brother/Sister for Gifts"

And Tada.. Christmas Door Bling!

Sibling rivalry is alive and well in the Pinkapotamus household.. so these are kinda just a funny way to lighten the mood!  The kids think they are GREAT!  Hope you fun decorating too!
