PALLET CHRISTMAS SIGN

Using an old pallet, some leftover paint, and some greens I cut, I made a Christmas sign - for $0.




The words were inspired by a Twila Paris song called
"It's The Thought That Counts"

My daughter Megan, sang this song in our church Christmas Program when she was seven.


I just hand-lettered the words. 
The next time I make a sign I will print out the words to trace for a more professional look. 






This message pierces my heart, and reminds me of the reason we celebrate the season.


The middle of the tree is a cross,
and we hung this nail we found in our yard.


Below the sign is a nativity. 





It's The Thought
Twila Paris 

And a loving thought sends us out to find
Something special for someone on our mind
And we think of friends and family
As we hang our gifts on the Christmas tree

It's the thought that counts when the thought is love
It's the thought that counts when you're thinking of
How the money flows in vast amounts
When the thought is love it's the thought that counts

And a loving thought sent a snow white lamb
To a little town known as Bethlehem
And the little lamb thought of you and me
As He hung His gift on the Christmas tree

It's the thought that counts when the thought is love
It's the thought that counts when you're thinking of
All the blood that flowed in vast amounts
When the thought is love, it's the thought that counts

Think of the precious gift He gave
Think of the life He thought to save

And the blood that flowed in vast amounts
When the thought is love, it's the thought that counts
When the thought is love, it's the thought that counts
When the thought is love, it's the thought that counts

  13. Love this tree. It is so beautiful -- and it wouldn't look right with "perfect" lettering. I pinned it to my pinterest board so I wouldn't forget it for next year.
