I'm posting todays project with Leigh @ Tales from Bloggeritaville for Thrifty Thursday and with Suzanne @ Coloradolady for Vintage Thingies Thursday. Go check out their great blogs and check in with all the thrifty and vintage finds!
I have seen a lot of vintage, wood tennis racquets with wood braces at thrift stores and antique malls.
I found these three braces at a thrift store (minus the tennis racquets) for 50 cents apiece.I wanted to make a BOO sign for the mantle and thought these would make great frames for the BOO letters.
And here is the finished project. You can see that I turned the middle brace upside down so the braces would sit close together. OK....I know those aren't crows I attached to my BOO sign....my Cricut cartridge only had a robin....just imagine it's a crow!
My vintage, thrifty BOO sign cost a total of $4.00!
