I hope all is merry and bright in your corner of the world.
In case you are searching for a last-minute, homemade gift from the heart…
I used 13.5 inch jumbo letters from Hobby Lobby for this project. Apply a coat of paint and allow time for the paint to dry and eat some cookies. Once dry, drill holes using a drill bit the size of the tiny bulb on your LED battery operated lights (again, I found mine at Hobby Lobby). I didn’t measure before using the drill. I just drilled where I thought the lights might look good. Add a few batteries and insert the lighted tips into the holes that you drilled. Do a little cleanup on the flip side, taping off the leftover lights and cords. A dot from a glue gun helps to anchor each light to the back.
Maker’s Gonna Make Make Make
Trust me: this is an easy project. The hardest part for me was finding the drill!
Focusing on the little things: the simple + the divine = JOY.
Intention ornaments from last year.
Music tip: I bet you thought I would recommend this song… I would, but I can’t stop listening to Ben Howard’s Every Kingdom deluxe album. I am here to say: it is fantastic.
Here he is singing Silent Night.
Choose joy. Especially in the chaos.
Repeat the Sounding Joy!
