We made it to day 5 of the 5 Days of Christmas!! YAY!! Today’s project is making signs with wall stickers. You can do this with window clings too but I do not think they look as nice. I am really proud of how these signs turned out. This is one of those projects that you can really jazz it up or leave it plan depending on your taste.
Lets Get Started
For this project you will need some of the Dollar Tree long signs. They have come out with these long signs for several holidays so they should not be to hard to fine. If you can not find them you could get wood from the hardware store or use foam core board. The next thing you will need are wall stickers or window clings. I also used some paint and Mod Podge.
I started by painting both boards with Waverly Chalk Paint in White. I only did one coat of white because I knew I would be adding more layers of colored paint. Lets look at the stary sky one first. To do this take any kind of black paint and roughly paint the board. While it is still wet take a clean brush and get very little white paint on it and dry brush it over the board. I also used a teal color. Purple and a dark pink would also work well. I went back and forth with the white, teal, and black paint adding it to where I thought it was lacking. After I was happy with how the sky looked, I mixed some shimmer paint and the white paint with some water. Then with a pointy brush I took the pointy brush loaded with the paint and water mixture and tapped it on my hand, over the board to make the splatter dots. This is messy but it makes it look like stars. To me, it is worth the mess.
As for the second board, I painted a road black and the sky with white and blue. I tried to channel my inner Bob Ross to make happy little trees with some green paint. It did not work well but at least I tried. Free hand painting is not something I am good at so I tried to improve when I can.
Once everything was dry, I stuck the stickers on each board. If the stickers do not stick, use a very light coat of Mod Podge on the back of them. If you put to much, you will be able to see it from the front of the sign so go at it with a lite hand.
Now if your sign does not have a hanger on it, just add one with some twine or ribbon and hot glue.
How awesome are these!!?? Like I said before, I am really proud of these signs. They look great and it would be something I would consider selling if I did not like them so much. It’s amazing what you can do for just a few bucks. These are so easy and the can really step up your Christmas decor game.
