"Let it Snow" Plaque Tutorial

I shared a picture of this for my Catch a Glimpse Party but here is the how to.

I decided to jump past fall and make something for winter to include in my prize package for my giveaway. Sorry the pictures are dark. I was crafting at night so there wasn't good lighting.

This is super easy.

-Wooden plaque
-Acrylic paint
-Scrapbook paper
-Cricut (not necessary though)
-Mod Podge

How to:
I had this little plaque in my craft stash for a while and thought it would be cute to make a wintery sign.

I painted it white and then painted a coat of white metallic paint on top.

It looks a little shimmery but it is hard to tell in the pics.

I cut some snowflake scrapbook paper to fit inside.

I then cut out "Let it Snow" with my cricut in white and gave it a blue border.
You can also just use stickers if you do not have a cricut.

I covered the letters with stickles glitter for that extra shimmer.

I also added a little snowflake to the top of the plaque and also covered it in glitter.

That's it!
So simple but such a cute little sign for winter decor.
It will be included into the prize pack for the giveaway so good luck! :)
