Simple DIY Joy Sign

Kaycee Geeding 

It’s been a hot minute since I post­ed any­thing new here on the blog and I thought this DIY Joy sign was a great way to fin­ish up all of my sea­son­al Christ­mas projects. In all hon­esty haven’t had a ton of time to spend on very many projects since open­ing the shoppe.

This project blos­somed out of the need to clear my mind and the word “Joy” was the first word that came to mind. Just this past Fri­day, Decem­ber 10th our small town of May­field. KY was com­plete­ly dev­as­tat­ed by high-end, mon­ster EF‑4 tor­na­do. After see­ing the dev­as­ta­tion in the town I call home, Joy has been hard to come by, quite hon­est­ly. Lives were lost, homes are gone and the joy that usu­al­ly comes with the Christ­mas sea­son is over­shad­owed by grief, guilt and confusion. 

It is dur­ing these times that I per­son­al­ly like to lean in to those things that feel nor­mal. Craft­ing with my friends over on Face­book today was exact­ly what y heart need­ed to spark a lit­tle joy and remind me of the hope that binds. I grabbed a a thrift­ed sign I found at a local thrift store a few weeks ago for only $3 and dug out a cute lit­tle $1 can­dle ring I had stashed in last years Christ­mas craft­ing supplies.

The can­dle ring made the per­fect let­ter “O” for this DIY sign and it made it feel super cheery for the sea­son. I sim­ple attached it to the sign with hot glue and shaped the let­ters J and Y with some craft­ing rope.

I styled this JOY sign with some of my favorite pil­lar can­dles from Roost and Restore Home right in the entry­way! It’s always good to remem­ber, even if the piece is sim­ple it’s the styling that brings all of the cozy fac­tors together.

I would love for you to grab your cof­fee and spend some time enjoy­ing some of the oth­er fun (and thrifty) projects I have here o the blog! It is my hope that you will feel like you have stepped into my home and you leave feel­ing inspired to look at the things around you in a new light. Look for ways you can add joy to your home today. Even if it is as sim­ple as mak­ing some­thing with your own hands.

DIY Wood Plank Bunny

From time to time an idea comes to me and it feels too sim­ple to be true. That is exact­ly how I felt when I fin­ished this craft.

Easy Biscuit Recipe Using 3 Ingredients

I have nev­er been able to mas­ter a easy bis­cuit recipe until I made the switch to self-ris­ing flour. Mama always told me to make the switch and for some stub­born rea­son of mine I felt like I was cheat­ing. I know, I know. It seems sil­ly but I was con­vinced. But I am here […]

DIY Charcuterie Board Ornament

I picked up this pack of 2 mini char­cu­terie boards from the Tar­get Dol­lar spot back in the Spring not real­ly know­ing what I had planned for them. Hon­est­ly they end­ed up pushed to the back of my craft stash only to reemerge when I was rum­mag­ing through my Christ­mas craft sup­plies. I pulled them […]
