White Christmas Painted Wood Sign


I saw this idea from The House of Smiths last year and couldn't wait to try it! 

White Christmas Painted Board

I started with a wood plaque from Hobby Lobby ($3).

I then placed a push pin in each corner of the plaque to keep the paint from sticking to the newspaper.
I covered the entire plaque using "Santa Red" Americana Acrylic Paint (3-4 coats).
You can apply this paint with a foam brush but an actual paint brush (1 to 2 inch width) allows you
to get the sides a little easier.  Lastly, I cut my design out on white vinyl and
 placed it on the painted plaque after it dried.

  1. What an adorable sign! And it looks os nice on your mantel. I wish I was more crafty. I'll have to try something like this one day. Merry Christmas!

  2. I love making signs for around the house out of our barn wood. I guess I love looking at the weathered wood and re-using it instead of tossing it. carved wooden fish
