Jillibean Soup - Wood Plank project

Good morning! I have a SUPER easy wood plank project to share with you, using a 12x16 wood plank from the Mix the Media collection by Jillibean Soup.

My house doesn't have a lot of room on its' walls for home d├ęcor, but at certain times of the year, I always find room to add a little something on top of a cabinet in our front entrance. I made this really easy DIY piece with just a few supplies.

I used the 12x16 wood plank (in raw pine) by Jillibean Soup. It is perfect for adding your own color too, just do a light sanding and add some acrylic paint! I used the Witty White  Happy Hues paint by Jillibean Soup and let it dry.

While it was drying, I cut the images for the wood out of black adhesive vinyl. The designs are both from the Silhouette online store.

Once it was dry, I lightly sanded the edges of the wood before applying my vinyl cut design. I should have distressed it a bit more, but it still looks pretty decent in the end.

As you can see, I simply added on my vinyl to the dry wood surface once it was completely dry. There are some tricks to getting it on (check out YouTube for tips), but once you get the hand of it, it's pretty easy!

I added in some bling to the center of the snowflakes for a little sparkle and I was all done! I figure this is something that can stay around our house beyond the holidays since we have "winter" for almost 4-6 months of the year! HA!
