We finally pulled our Christmas decorations out of the basement this week! Along with our old favorites, we added a few new Christmassy items this year. Some of my favorite pins on my Christmas board are of hand-lettered wooden signs. A few weeks ago when my sister was visiting we decided to bite the bullet and DIY a few Christmas signs of our own!
You only need a few things to make your own wooden signs, too!
- wood (whatever sizes you like, we chose scraps from my garage)
- paint (I used red and black for the backgrounds and white for the text)
- a pencil
- if you don't want to draw your signs freehand you could print text in your favorite fonts to use as a template
Step one was rummaging through my garage for leftover scraps of wood.We found a mix of plywood and boards in sizes that we could work with - mostly so we didn't have to get the saw out in this cold weather.
We brought all the boards inside and I gave them a quick coat of paint. I did one black, one red, and left one plain.
