12 Days of Christmas: On the Fourth Day of Christmas…

On the fourth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…

4 festive letters
3 photo shoots
A 2 piece no-sew blanket
And a new spot for our Christmas tree

Here’s a festive DIY display made using materials from the dollar store.

I used:

  • Wooden craft dowels
  • Twine
  • A branch wreath
  • A wooden letter ‘E’
  • Paint
  • Shelf brackets

For the N, I attached 3 wooden dowels using twine.  I also painted the tips of the dowels to tie into the E.

For the O, I used a pre-made branch wreath that was painted gold.

For the E, I used a wooden craft letter that I painted white.  Once the paint was applied, I     wiped it down with a paper towel to give it more of a ‘worn-in’ look.

For the L, I used metal shelf brackets that were wrapped with twine to give them a rustic feel.

Super easy to pull this DIY together and only cost $6.  Great for holiday decorations on a budget!

Tomorrow is a bit of a busy day for us so I may not get around to posting about Day 5 until Sunday.  Stay tuned and enjoy your weekend!
