"JOY "alternate builds for Christmas gifts

Loved your "JOY" wall art, but after I built the prototype, realized it was way too large for my idea of gifts for the family. Since I had already cut and sanded pallet boards to size, I downsized the idea and used individual boards and 4" and 6" stencils to paint the letters. I wanted a darker border around the letters, so I woodburned around them. Some of that turned out uneven since the wood wasn't smooth but it adds to the rustic look. I used roundish tree ornaments to use for the "O" letter. Popped on sawtooth hangers on the back and left them unfinished. I did finish off the larger red barn boards and the grey one with spray Clear Coat, since I thought the wood looked dried out.
Thanks for all your great ideas and look forward to your new ones!
