I know, it’s WAAAAAY too early to be posting any Christmas nonsense, and in all honesty this project started out with a DIY rustic Autumn sign… but expanded all on its own.
Let me show you – I had some 1 x12″ wood in the garage that I wanted to make a sign out of. I’ve been eyeballing the “Fresh Baked Pies” and “Pumpkin Patch” farmhouse signs that are all over Instagram right now. (I went with pumpkin patch because I didn’t want to be held accountable for having any kind of fresh baking in the house, and my garden is just weedy enough to possibly hide a pumpkin or two)
This is such an easy project, to create your own DIY rustic Christmas sign start out by painting your boards with the colour you want the letters to be.
Then cut out your saying via the Silhouette Cameo onto adhesive vinyl.
After sticking your letters to the boards, paint over the entire board with the same colour again – this ensures that any paint-bleed is in the original colour and will make your rustic Christmas sign have nice crisp lettering in the end.
Once that is dry, go over each board with an alternate colour paint.
Two to three coats (with dry time in between) and you’re rustic Christmas sign is done!
Peel off your letters with tweezers and your sign is ready.
As good as these looked, I wanted to up it a notch further and border these with farmhouse frames – the how to here.
One for me, one for Sherri:
Oh, and the pesky Pumpkin Patch one that started the whole endeavour:
With Hallowe’en just around the corner, neither/none of these will be up for long – but November is-a-comin and then look out!
And don’t be too grown up to look up!
Have a great one!
