A while back, I picked up some plain wooden letters from Joann’s for a little DIY Christmas project. I had the intention of doing something really fancy with them–covering them in glitter, wrapping them in burlap, or modge-podging scrapbook paper over them. But when it came right down to it, none of that sounded right.

I put them on the mantle plain and stood back, scratching my head.

Then, C built me a skinny little table for our entryway. He used a really pretty honey-colored stain for the top board, and he said I could have the leftovers.

Boom. Problem solved. I stained those wooden letters and popped them back on them mantle. It’s such a nice look! Rustic, yet clean and classy at the same time.

I love that the solution was so easy–sometimes the right look is the simplest one.

Do you have any DIY decoration projects on the docket this Christmas?
