We Love Fall...and Noel

Time: 1 hour

Old fence piece
Old blocks of wood

1. Make sure two wood pieces are nailed in place at the top and bottom
2. Paint all wood pieces

3. Let dry and then choose letters. Since we chose a 4 letter word ending in L we decided to make the sign interchangeable. The front says "We love Fall" the back side of the blocks turn into "We Love Noel" (will post pic after Thanksgiving)

Met. Married. Made.

Our friends, Emily and Garrett, are getting married in two weeks, and we wanted to make something really sweet for them. I saw this idea on Pinterest, and Aaron knew how to age our paper.

Time: 20 minutes

Google Maps

1. Do a map search of the place the couple met, will marry, and will live.
2. Paste maps on a Word document and print

4. Place on a cookie sheet and bake at 200 for about 7 minutes (keep a very close eye on it)
5. After baked, cut to size and burn edges
7. Let dry and hang or display
