Re-purposed Cutting Board Christmas Card Holder

November 19, 2016

You know me, always picking up cutting/breadboards.  This one is from a garage sale.

Also from a garage sale, this little wooden box was marked "pencil holder for shop" 50 cents.  I bought two.

I attached the little shop "pencil box" to the cutting board with two screws.  If you can't find a "pencil box" a different small box or wall pocket will work too.

I taped around the box with blue painter's tape (since I didn't paint the box before attaching) and painted it with Decoart Chalky Paint in Lace.  I also stenciled on a snowflake from the Old Sign Stencils Winter Graphics Stencil.  I sealed the piece with Miss Mustard Seed's Hemp oil.  The hemp oil evened out the color of the cutting board as well as sealing the paint.

 I tied on a scrap of muslin for hanging.
