Spreading joy isn’t just for the holidays! If you have an older piece of wood, dress it up with this welcoming plaque that you can add to the side of your house, garage, or barn. Try some letters other than “Joy” if you’d like – your last name, another saying – anything!
Difficulty level: Intermediate
Time to complete: 1 hour
Age range: 10+
Things to do:
1. Place the letters on your wood to decide on placement and size of the plaque.
