While at the Dollar Store I spotted the most adorable Holiday Gift Bags. There were two that I was immediately drawn to-a little red truck gift bag and a retro camper gift bag. Both these items are unbelievably popular this Holiday season. Everywhere you go you see some version of a Christmas red truck or camper. But I loved them so much that I didn’t just want to use them as a bag and I certainly didn’t want to give them away! So I decided to make signs out of them! Let me show you how.
Dollar Store Christmas Camper Pallet Wood Sign
Dollar Store Gift Bag
My Dad puts together these pallet wood signs for me to use for different projects. You can find free pallets at many stores or sometimes on the side of the road. I painted this one in a whitewash finish.
Next, cut the Dollar Store gift bag to fit the size of the pallet wood sign.
Finally, adhere it to the pallet wood with Mod Podge. I add Mod Podge both to the wood and to the back of the gift bag. Then I seal the top with an additional coat of Mod Podge.
See how easy that was? Now as the pallet wood was free and the gift bag was $1, this entire project cost a whopping $3 to make with the cost of 1/4 bottle of Mod Podge. You can’t beat that! So remember the little red truck gift bag I mentioned above? If you want to see what I made with that, along with another gift bag upcycle, please see my guest post at Centsible Chateau.
