"Christ in Christmas" Board

A few years ago (before Pinterest) I saw a Christmas board that had phrases pertaining to the Christmas season for each letter of the word Christmas. I loved the idea at the time, but Kim and I thought that the phrases would be even better if they had to do with Christ instead of just general Christmas themes. The two of us brainstormed and came up with phrases that we were satisfied with, then made vinyls of our idea so that we could put together some boards with the rest of the girls in our family at Thanksgiving that year. It's still one of our favorite holiday decorations, so we thought it was worth sharing!

Our boards were 20" tall and 15" wide. Kim painted hers cream and then aged it a little with some stain that she brushed on and then wiped off. I painted mine Metallic Taupe from Plaid FolkArt paints. It's a quick and easy project that is a great reminder of what the Christmas season is really about!
