Whitney’s Christmas JOY Plaques - using a piece of wood, wooden candle stick (from art supply store) and finials (from construction store) you can make these easy plaques with various decorations for the holidays, i.e. "JOY" or "HOHO" or "BOO" or "I ♥ U"
Use those pretty bits and pieces of paper you can't bear to part with for this wall-art project. Local crafts stores carry inexpensive wood plaques in tons of shapes and sizes. Paint the plaques, cut the paper accordingly, and adhere. Finish with a coat of polyurethane if desired.
