12 Days of Christmas--Day 2

On the second day of Christmas Beyond the Picket Fence gave to me, a Noel sign for hanging. A little linguistics for you--Noel is the French word for Christmas and is derived from the Latin word meaning Nativity.

I made this Noel much like the EAT signs I have done, using pallet wood.  I use small pieces of beadboard to connect the letters.  I did add hangers on the back, but I show it in these pictures propped on my (dusty) shelf.

I could have made a square O, or I suppose a hexagon, but I chose to use something circular for the O.  You could use a saw blade,

 I like the rust on the blade.

or a wreath like I did.

A silver platter, a wooden plate, an enamel lid, a jello mold would also work great.  I think I will stick with the wreath and maybe add a few berries to it.
