Maybe it does all three?
hanging on an antique scale...
hanging on a sign...
hanging on a wall...
hanging at my house...
then I could give you an exact amount of what Santa's bag weighs, wheys or ways.
Even though I'm bad at math, I can do cyphering to get the answer:1 pc. of shelving + 1 part of a vintage Hanson scale + 1 painted flour sack = 1 heavy sign.
Grand total = A December Junk Team Event that weighs heavy with talented bloggers.
My calculation has a tally of 14 projects created just for December,
which adds up to tidings yule should not miss.
This sign is big, it's about six feet long and let me tell you.... Santa and I both love this sign.
And I like the little bag that can hang festively from it for the holidays and then when the 4th of July rolls around I will finally get around to taking it down. Maybe.

Start with cheap white flour sack towels. They look like diapers, but are basically worthless when wet, so I don't advise trying them out on your baby.
Tape the towel off with masking tape - I eyeballed it since it didn't have to be exact.
Then just paint the towel between the masking tape lines, but put something underneath as it could bleed onto your counter. When dry peel off the tape.
I mixed up a custom color from a sample pot of Maison Blanche Cerise with a dab of black craft paint.
You will end up with a jolly little towel that doesn't weigh much when it becomes a bag.
I stuffed the bag with some old pillow fill, which I had to do a couple times before I got the shape of the bag the way I wanted it. The first time it looked like a beach ball.
I Mod Podged the cardstock onto the wood, glittered it up and twined it on the scale hook.

The print said Jingle all the Way, and I needed it to say weigh, so I just changed it up.
You get this whole advertising sign thing right?
It's hanging on a scale so it's jingle all the weigh?
The scale is a Hanson dairy scale, hence the curds and whey.
For the sign I used La Chaux Lime Paint also from Maison Blanche.
This sign changed the whole look of our kitchen eating nook. There used to be a small Bon Appetit sign hanging there that was pretty blah, now the dairy sign pulls its own weight.
Now that I've jingled all the weigh, way and whey with you,
stop in at the following blogs to get visions of sugarplums dancing in your head.
