NOEL Wall Art

Pottery Barn’s Noel Sign has become rather famous in the world of Christmas décor. I have seen it recreated many times, but this DIY from Christa at Brown Sugar Toast is by far the thriftiest! Christa got almost the exact look of those well-known letters by cutting them herself from a large piece of cardboard. How’s that for resourcefulness?
