Christmas Yard Sign

How fun is this?  I am loving all these holiday yard art signs people are doing.  I love the personalized ones most.  Chelon at Chatty Walls did the vinyl for me.  Look at the "K" in workshop, too fun!  I love all the different fonts she used too.  Fun times!

To make this you don't need very many things.  You need a 1x4 and a 1x3 board and also a stake, I usually find mine at Lowes for $ .99.  You also need a few wood screws that are 1 1/2" long.  Maybe like 8 of them.  2 for each board.  Paint, and vinyl and holly berries if you want or ribbon.

I cut the top board which is the 1x4 at 20", and the other 3 boards, which are the 1x3's at 18" each.  Then I just picket the ends at 45 degree angles.  But you wouldn't even have to do that and it would look just as fun.

The colors for paint I used are Americana brand.  Napa Red, Snow White and Light Hauser Green.  I LOVE THESE COLORS!

The ribbon I got from Michaels.  It's in their Christmas line.  It's all glittery green and perdy!  The Holly Berry garland is also from Michaels.  But it would be just as cute with a red ribbon wrapped around the stake like a candy cane.  I could hardly wait until Thanksgiving was done to pull in the fall yard sign and put up the Christmas one!  I'm super excited for the holidays to get here!


  1. I love this! I love the colors too, Aaron HATES that green, he said he wanted me to use more of a 'forest' green. Bwahahaha, nice try, queer eye. It will be over my cold dead body that I put forest green up for Christmas! *wiping a tear from my eye* Great job, as always!

  2. Love this! So cute ... seriously love the fun characters on the letters.
