Earlier this fall, I made a sign celebrating the season with a cheap wall art sticker from Michael's. I just placed it on a painted pine board and I had a custom sign. It was a quick, easy and inexpensive DIY project with rock star results.
I mentioned that come holiday time I would flip the board over and use the back to create a Christmas sign...and that's just what I did.
I did paint the sides ivory. I may have to paint them orange next fall...or I may be ready for a new sign by then and repaint the whole board a completely different color. At two bucks a sticker, I can afford to be frivolous!
When the paint was dry, I added the sticker. I could've been done there, but this sign was just asking for a little more, so I dabbed a bit of red paint around the perimeter of the board. It's a very subtle detail, but adds a little kick.
*One important note...in certain lights, a bit of shine can be seen coming off the sticker itself. This can be eliminated by using a coat of clear sealer or decoupage gel. I did not do this, since it doesn't bother me and as I stated earlier, I am fickle. I want to be able to remove the sticker and replace it. If you are looking for a more permanent piece, I would seal it.
I am very happy with the way this one turned out. It certainly is festive!
What do you think, does it look like $2.00 décor?
