I am sharing my tutorial for a DIY Glittery Merry Christmas Sign. This was actually a monogram sign that I purchased at Hobby Lobby a few years ago. And NOW it’s ideal for Christmas decorating, with some glitter, glitz and glam.
It’s the 3rd week for the Deck The Home Christmas Blog Hop. It has been incredible with SO many amazing projects and Christmas ideas! This week the theme is: Wood Sign.
All the Wood Sign projects will be listed in the links below this post.
This wood sign looks great for Spring or Summer months. But it is getting battered from the wind and heat.
So it’s time to re-purpose and make something fresh for Christmastime.
What You will Need:
4-Sponge paint brushes
1-Merry Christmas ornament with gold glitter
3 yards silver cording
3 yards silver mesh ribbon
3-gold or silver bobble ornaments
1 1/2 yards white ribbon
4 yards gold sparkly trim
1-small pine cone
Start off by painting the back of the wooden sign. It took 3 coats to cover it completely.
Cut off cording hanger with scissors.
With a sponge brush, use silver glittery paint for the frame. This took about 4 coats.
After the silver paint is dry, attach the Merry Christmas ornament to the frame with hot glue.
When the white craft paint on the wood sign completely dries, brush a thick coat Mod Podge all over it.
Sprinkle the iridescent glitter as you go. (I just love the sparkle in the sun light!)
When the glitter is completely dry, use hot glue to adhere the frame to the sign.
Now it is time to add the trimmings.
For a hanger, tie the white ribbon through each hole in the wood sign. Making it as long or short as you desire.
Using hot glue, carefully add the gold trim around the edges.
Use the sliver mesh ribbon to make a six loop bow. This can be as long or small as you want. Attach the bow to the corner of the sign.
With a hot glue gun attach the faux pine sprig and pine cone onto the bow.
Attach the leaves and white poinsettia on the center of the bow.
I like the natural touches with the pine cone, pine sprig, leaves and the poinsettia. But it is NOT necessary. If you like something else, by all means, use it.
At 3 various lengths, tie the bobbles to the silver cording. Making a knot attach them altogether at the top. Hot glue this under the bow or to the white ribbon.
It should look similar to this.
I just love how this “new” sign for our home to welcome our family, friends and neighbors. Especially during this festive time of year!
