Submitted by LindaYou may remember that I just became a pinner this last June. Soon thereafter, I began seeing this beautiful NOEL being pinned and repinned. I decided to begin looking for letters in my antiquing adventures. To see the original Creator's blog, click HERE.
In Clovis I found this upper case N and lower case E. Both red, which could be a problem. I was happy with the red N, because I was eager to add more color to my project. After striking out on an L, and even checking out the local craft stores, I sought out my dad's work bench. He helped me cut this L out of a scrap of wood. The picture below was taken so that I could look for a grapevine wreath for the O.
Next I decided to paint the L with a dark gray color, and then sanded the edges so it would look old.
