One of the simplest gifts to give are those containing vinyl! At least for me… and I love doing it! It’s a cheap alternative for wedding gifts when money is tight- and, who doesn’t love home decor? I mean really? All you need is a good piece of wood and your silhouette (not paid to say that, I am just truly obsessed with them) This particular gift is about families, as in Families Are Forever.
Here is a wood plank I made for my brother in law and his wife for Christmas.
I took a simple Red Oak plank (a scrap that measures about 3 inches wide by 2 ft long and 1 inch thick) and finished it with Shelac. I cut the last name “Coffey” out in black vinyl and the words “families are forever” in white vinyl, layering the two on the plank. I wish I had written down or remembered what fonts I used, but I forgot to. Basically, the look I was going for was an all caps solid background wording and a formal or script font for the top writing. I purchased picture hanging hardware at Hobby Lobby and secured it to the back for easy hanging. So simple yet personable for any occasion.
