Christmas Decor- Wood Sign {Plus Free Printable Tree}

If you saw my post last week about the awesome Silhouette sale going on now, you saw a sneak peak of this little wood sign. If you have an electronic cutter, this is a quick and easy Christmas decor project. I am working on decorating the new shelves in my kitchen, and I needed something to fill the space in the middle. I came up with this Christmas tree wood sign. christmas-decor I found this wood board at my local thrift store, but you can use any board. I liked that this one had a routed edge, so that I could add a little more color to the edge. christmas-signI painted it with white latex paint and red craft paint, because that’s what I had on hand. It already looks better, doesn’t it? christmas-craft-wood-signI made up a design using the Silhouette Studio software. And just in case any of you are like me and like to copy projects exactly so you don’t have to think about it, I used a free font called “Cupid de Locke”. But you can use any font that you like! After I cut my vinyl, I adhered it to the board and started stenciling. Tip: Don’t remove the tiny vinyl hearts until after you have your green letters stenciled. Much easier that way! christmas-craftHere it is after I pulled the vinyl off. christmas-tree-wood-signI decided to scuff mine up a little with my palm sander. christmas-craft-wood-signAnd now it is sitting happily on my shelf, just waiting for other Christmas decor to join it! 🙂 wood-christmas-signDon’t have an electronic cutter? No worries. I’ve also made up a free printable that you can use instead! I played around with some different fonts, so you have two to choose from. This is the one I used for my stencil: christmas-printableNow that it’s all said and done, I’m kinda wishing I would have gone with this one. I think I would have liked the more bold letters. Who knows, I may end up re-painting it. I’m crazy like that!free-printable-christmas To access the free printable Christmas Tree Sign, just click the link below:

    This is great, Kara! I’d love for you to share it at Throwback Thursday or any other great post you have.


  2. I was thinking a smaller version of this could make a cute Christmas tree ornament (neighbor gift). Any way you could 6 or 8 to a page all on the same page? I like them both… but favor the second one because it looks more symmetrical although I like the extra pop of red in the first version.
