If you are a little late to the Christmas decor party, like I was, then this DIY Christmas sign will be the perfect solution to your holiday decor needs.
Since this is the first time I have decorated for Christmas in the past two years, I didn’t know what my color scheme for my living room would be. Once I nailed down my Santa theme, I needed to find a sign for my mantle. By the time I figured this out, all of the *good signs were either gone or too big. So I needed to find a solution to my mantle sign dilemma. Plus, all of the other signs were out of my price point so I decided to make my own for only twenty dollars.
Round-Up a Sign
I needed to keep this as cheap as possible, seeing how I already spent my budget for Christmas decor. Let’s not tell the Hubster that, though! Since I wasn’t going to use another sign during this time, I would use this as the frame for my temporary Christmas sign.
Choose a Design
On Etsy, I searched for a downloadable Christmas file that was printable. Once I chose my design, I uploaded the file to Walgreens and picked up the poster the next morning.
Measure and Cut the Poster
You will measure the inside of the frame that you are choosing to use. Next, you will mark where cuts need to be made on your poster. I used an extra shelf from our Office Built-in Bookcases to make sure that I had a straight template when using the box cutter on the poster.
Adhere the Poster
Originally, I used painter’s tape to adhere the poster to the original sign. However, the next morning the poster was on the floor. So I switched gears and used Command Poster Strips.
The Finished Product
Not too shabby for only twenty dollars, right?! You can watch the video tutorial here.
