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
- Wood for Sign (18″ x 7.5″)
- Furring Strip for Frame
- Mini Wreath (I used this one)
- White & Black Paint and Brush
- Wood Glue
- Staple Gun or Hot Glue Gun
- Vinyl (I used black)
- Christmas Ribbon
- Miter Saw or hand saw
- Sand Paper
- Brad Nailer or Hammer & Nails
- Transfer Tape
- Electronic cutter (cricut explore, silhouette or other cutter)
- Cut File (available for free in my resource library)
HERE’S WHAT YOU DO
The first thing you’ll need to do is get the free SVG file you’ll use for this project. I keep all the SVG files I use for the projects I make in my SVG Library. These SVG files work with Cricut and Silhouette machines, as well as many others. This library is open to everyone and is free! You can access the library here. Look for the file called Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas. It will either be listed under the Christmas category-25 Days of Craftmas 2018 – Day 8.
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.
