Signs of Christmas

More Christmas in the kitchen......
A wooden  Merry Christmas sign hangs above the pantry.
We made several of these signs a few years ago and gave them as gifts to family and a few friends.
We used red stain on cut wood boards. Trimmed with strips of wood stained green. 
We used a stencil for the letters and just added a few holly leaves and accents by hand. 
I trimmed the wrought iron pot rack with evergreen garland. Then I hung Christmas copper cookie cutters with  raffia.
 The pot rack hangs above the kitchen island. To see the kitchen island makeover click HERE.
 The pot rack is an old heavy wrought iron window guard we found a few years ago in a salvage yard. We sprayed it black and hung it from chains.
 I wrapped some rosemary from my herb garden around a wire heart and tied it with a red gingham bow.
It hangs on my Longaberger wrought iron snowman.

Come back soon....there's lots more!
