JOY...Part 2


To make 3 "JOY" yard signs we used 2 sheets of plywood 3/4" thick.  
Here is the "back" part of the "O"
Trust me it will look better when it is all put together.....I sure hope so.
 Here is the "O", it has the manger cut out in it.
Randy is drilling for the posts to go in.
Put it all together and this is the "O" part of the JOY.
It makes it a 3D Nativity.
 Next Randy drilled holes in blocks of wood and screwed them into the letters.
We will put metal stakes thru the back side and so they won't blow over in our Oklahoma winds.
 I primed all of them.....Pink primer isn't exactly pretty for Christmas,
but a necessary step....so I am told.
Then the red and white paint.
A small assembly line here, 2 coats of each color 
and I used outdoor paint for this.
I will show you the finished product next time....I hope,
I am having trouble loading my photos....wish me luck.

Merry CHRISTmas to all.

Thanks for visiting my "Joyful" part of the country,
Jana

  1. Seriously, this time anyway; These are great I'm anxious to see them displayed, firsthand of course. Randy may have to give Cheri a few jigsaw lessons before she is proficient enough to manufacture these.
