Today I am sharing a fun Christmas craft and teaching you how to build a framed wood sign. About two years ago I shared everything you could ever want to know about building and stenciling a wood sign. I even have a wood sign video series devoted to the topic. Today I’m adding something a little different to this wood sign collection I have created, a simple framed wood sign with a Christmas stencil. This is part of the Deck the Home blog hop that premiered last weekend with this Christmas wreath. Our topic this week is a wood project and you will find a collection of beautiful and creative wood projects at the end of this post.
Today’s wood sign starts with a piece of plywood that I stenciled and added cut vinyl words to. I added a simple wood frame with a 1×2 to give the sign some definition and depth. This is a Christmas sign, but the technique can be used year round. I used my go to gray stain and white chalk paint for the base of the sign, then added vinyl words to read fresh cut Christmas trees.
I cut a stencil of Christmas trees and painted them with an array of green to create a pretty forest.
