I love creating projects that have a vintage feel and this Easy DIY Christmas Sign has a fun?updated vintage look! It is so quick to make too – you can have a sweet new Christmas decoration in just a few hours.

I decorated the sign with these gorgeous fabric flowers – they have a pretty red, pink and green color scheme but they don’t shout Christmas – nice and subtle I think!

Supplies:

  • Wood Board – sized about 12″ x 18″
  • Stain (and supplies like cloth and gloves)
  • fabric flowers (or paper if that’s your thing)
  • Decoupage & brush
  • Paint Pen
  • Pattern for Lettering

Begin by staining your board.

Cut out the flowers you’d like for each corner. I used this gorgeous Jennifer Paganelli fabric but you could use any fabric you like, something vintage or even paper. (Paper is always a last resort to me. Scary stuff.) Apply decoupage to the back of your fabric and apply it to the wood piece. Brush a light layer of decoupage over the fabric.

Print out the lettering for the sign and trim around the design so it’s easy to center.

Trace the design onto the wood in the center between the flowers. As an alternative you can cut out the design with vinyl and paint it on like a stencil.

Paint over the tracing with a paint pen.

It could take a few layers to get a nice bright paint line. If you find you’re taking paint off, wait for it to dry a bit then paint over the lettering again.

That’s all there is too it! So easy right?!

    I love the non-traditional bright red and pinks!
