Hello! It’s week 3 of Deck the Home and this week’s challenge is wood signs. Signs are one of my favorite things to make, especially using Chalk Couture.
You can literally whip up a beautiful wood sign in about 20 minutes. This wood serving tray that I made last year would also make a great Christmas Gift.
I’m participating in a fun Christmas Porch Blog Hop this year, so I’m planning my decorating ideas. I’m going with a classic Christmas look and the first thing I made was this red truck wreath for the front door:
So for this wood sign challenge, I decided to go with a red and white Be Merry wood sign. Let me show you how easy this is to make.
Supplies Needed For DIY Christmas Porch Sign
- A Long Wood Board – 10″ x 54″ – You can use any type of wood you like for the sign. I used a scrap piece of wood from my Dad’s stock pile.
- Deco Art Americana Chalky Finish Paint – Everlasting
- Be Merry Chalk Couture Transfer
- Chalkology Paste Candy Apple
- Chalk Couture Squeegee
Sand down the board and remove any rough spots. I like the rustic look, so I just gave it a quick sanding.
Paint the board with white paint. My board had been painted black previously, so I gave it a solid two coats. Let it dry in between coats.
Cut the Be Merry transfer to place on the wood sign.
“Fuzz” the transfer before placing it on the wood sign. If you have never used Chalk Couture, here is a printable which shows the four simple steps for applying a transfer:
Use the squeegee to apply the candy apple chalkology paste to the transfer.
Remove the transfer and rinse them off with cold water.
You can go back and touch up the letters if you like, but I had planned on sanding it anyway, so I left it as is. I do plan to go back and seal it to protect it from the elements. You can use wax or clear acrylic sealer.
I’ll be sure to update this post with updated pictures showing how this easy to make wood Christmas sign looks on my front porch.
