Quick DIY Thank You Sign

This quick DIY thank you for the Nappywood appreciation party was made by covering the below yard sale frame with burlap.  The red stick-on letters were from the clearance section at Michaels.  A spot of glue was used to stick the letters to the burlap instead of peeling the backs of the letters and permanetly attaching them - they can be used again - the holidays are coming :).  

Finished sign was placed on the buffet table.
