DIY Christmas JOY Sign
It’s week three of the Deck the Home Blog Hop and this week is focused on outdoor Christmas decor. I’m a busy lady, as are most of my readers, so I knew I wanted to make something fast, easy, and obviously super cute. Inspiration struck me at Hobby Lobby when I saw these black metal letters. I thought they would be perfect for making a modern Christmas sign for my front porch. Follow along with my tutorial in creating a Christmas JOY sign.
Materials for Christmas JOY Sign:
- Plywood board
- White paint
- Metal letters (J &Y)
- Cottonwood stems (I used two)
- Staple gun
Paint your board. I used some leftover white paint I had laying around. Or is it lying around? I should probably know this as an English teacher. Stop judging.
Take your cottonwood stems and shape them into a circle. I took one stem and formed a circle and secured it with some floral wire. You can use twine for this as well.
Then I took pieces of cottonwood off of the second stem and formed them around circle.
Space out your letters. Once you positioned the letters where you like them, it’s time to secure them to the board. First, staple the O in the center of the board using the staple gun.
Then, take your glue to glue the J and Y down.
Let dry, then style away!
