Ho Ho Ho Christmas Sign

Ho Ho Ho! Meeeerry Christmas!

Carrying on with the “I need festive signs over my fireplace” project list this year, we created this super Ho Ho Ho sign for the holidays. I’m telling you, making your own signs is the way to go. The combined cost of our Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas sign was roughly $40.00. That’s a steal!

You can see a detailed tutorial on how to build your own sign in under 15 minutes here.

For this Ho Ho Ho sign, I painted the entire sign white first, placed the letters, and painted over the sign with red. Once dry, I outlined the letters with a very thin layer of glitter glue, because… why not? A little sparkle never hurt anyone. 

The result is a vibrant sign that makes me smile every time I walk through the front door. Especially since all I can picture is Santa’s bowl full of jelly belly jiggling with each joyous Ho-Ho-Ho!

Wishing you all a very happy holiday!

Holiday Footprint Artwork Ideas

One of my favorite things about the daycare we put our son in is the number of art projects they do with the kids. At least three times a month, we get a little creation using our little one’s unique art skills. At 3 months old, he is very good at making art with his hands and his feet. Haha!

For the holidays, he has brought home some of the cutest footprint artwork I’ve ever seen. Maybe I’m just biased? Oh well, I may be. But! If you have little ones of your own, these are some serious crafty inspiration.

DIY Thankful Thanksgiving Sign

‘Tis the season to be thankful! When I made the new Halloween sign for over our fireplace, I knew I wanted to make one for Thanksgiving as well. I used the same technique but instead, I wanted to go for a raw, minimalist design.

A simple Cricut design and some spray paint brought this sign to life. Don’t have a Cricut? Don’t worry! You can easily make this sign using templates from a craft store (or ones you make yourself!) or large stickers.

This project cost me less than $20 and only took 30 minutes. Yes! You read that right. Looking for a quick, last-minute project for Thanksgiving? This is the one for you!

Follow the tutorial below and you’ll be done in no time.

DIY Dead and Breakfast Sign

Welcome. foolish mortals, to the Lawrence Dead & Breakfast Inn.

Every good Dead and Breakfast needs a quality sign, and this one is no exception. All that was needed was a little paint and creativity to bring our Halloween theme to life.

Admittedly, this project can (and did for me) get a little expensive. I chose to go the pre-made route for a few pieces, but I want the sign to last for the foreseeable future. For instance, the post holding the sign is a newel post from Home Depot, which is priced $30 and up. Sure, I could have built something less elaborate using table legs and furniture feet (a path I started down but changed my mind), but I liked how fancy the newel post looked and decided to go for it.

Also – I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I used a Cricut to make the sign template – however, you can easily use stencils or large alphabet stickers from any craft store to achieve the same effect.

Nevertheless, this project is super easy and can be done in one afternoon.

So, come along and learn how to make your own sign… if you dare…
