Thermometer Craft

I paid a dollar for an old 3 part thermometer at a rummage sale.
It looked similar to this before it's make-over...
I popped the cheap plastic meters out,
which left me a nice 3 hole frame!
It was just right for a holiday sign!
I used my Cricut paper die cutting machine to cut the letters.
The flower is a Sizzix die cut from Tim Holtz.
 The gem is a Close To My Heart brad!
The rustic cardboard backing was easy to tack on & free!

I distress inked the flower edges for a
rustic dimensional look.

I also tried to gently shape the petals
 so they weren't completely flat.
