Welcome to Day #3 of the Homemade Holiday inspiration I am sharing.  The ideas I am sharing are intended to be easy, inexpensive and simple ideas that you can create to share the joy with your family & friends this holiday season.

Today I am focusing on home decor ideas.  This frame is actually an inexpensive plastic frame I intentionally bought at a big box store for this project.  (trying to keep the project inexpensive).  I love how it turned out – what do you think?

I received a gift from my friend Wynonna at Stampin’ Up!’s Onstage event earlier this month.  It was something very similar to this plaque.   So simple but adorable!    You can easily make a few of these!

I found the wood strips at a lumber yard.  It was called screen lattice.  I stained it with some stain we had laying around the house and cut it into 6″ lengths.
