Welcome to day 8 of my 25 Days of Craftmas series!  Today I’m sharing another Christmas sign.  Sometimes, I picture a project in my head and when I finish it, it’s not quite what I had envisioned.  Luckily, this wasn’t one of those times.  This sign turned out just as I had imagined (maybe even better) and I LOVE it!. 

The rustic frame and the mini wreath complete this sign so perfectly.  And the best part is that it was really easy to make!

HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED

HERE’S WHAT YOU DO

Start by cutting down the wood furring strip.  You’ll need 2 – 19.5″ pieces and 2 – 7.5″ pieces. Paint the strips red and let dry.

Lightly sand the edges and surfaces of each piece of the frame.

Brush watered down black paint on the wood.

Then, wipe it off with a paper towel.  There should be just a small amount of black paint left on the wood. Repeat with all the pieces.

Now it’s time to attach the frame.  Start by nailing on the top and bottom pieces.  I used this brad nailer, which I totally love, but you could also use a hammer and nails.  Once the top and bottom pieces are secure, attach each of the sides.

Cut a strip of ribbon about 16″ long.  Position the wreath on the front of the sign and then wrap the ribbon around to the back.

Use a staple gun or hot glue gun to secure the ribbon to the back of the sign.  Trim off the excess ribbon.  That’s it.  You’re done!

This sign really turned out cute, I kind-of love it.  I think when Christmas is over, I’ll make an everyday one that can stay up all year long.  I just need to figure out a cute saying to put on it.
