During the holidays, time is precious. I’m sharing how to create a DIY Christmas Sign the easy way!
Christmas is fast upon us and time becomes scarce as the holiday approaches. If you are anything like me, you like to craft and create decor for your own home. As much as I would like to create a wood sign from scratch, there are a couple of issues.
- Above my skill level
- Too time consuming
- Can be costly
Most of the work has been done for you
I am here today to share how to make a DIY Christmas sign the easy way. It doesn’t get any easier than starting with a ready-made sign.
This lake sign was a $1.00 thrift store purchase. It has been in my garage collecting dust. I decided to paint over the graphic and make a Christmas sign. Actually, the graphic is a faux chalkboard paper overlay.
- White paint
- Gold paint
- Painters tape – optional
- Christmas stickers – with clear backing
- Red berries
- Hot glue
For this project, I already had these supplies in my craft stash. Feel free to use paint colors of your choice.
Step by Step
First, I used the white paint and painted two coats over the existing graphics.
After this paint dried completely, I used painters tape to mark off a border. If you have a steady painting hand, you can skip this step. I definitely needed the tape LOL
Gold metallic craft paint was applied to the outer border of the sign.
Remember these stickers from my DIY Personalized Christmas Ornaments? Leftover stickers were used for the sign. It’s important that the stickers have a clear backing.
Stickers were applied to the center of the sign.
Using a hot glue gun, I embellished one corner with greenery and holly berries.
Excluding drying time, this was approximately a 20 minute project! My kind of project!
I hope that you are inspired in some small way by this DIY Christmas Sign the Easy Way!
