Here’s a tremendous (and cheap) technique to enhance for the Christmas – and you do not have to be an artist to do it!
Let’s create a wall artwork out of scrap wooden, paint just a few letters on it, and add a retailer purchased wreath!
This JOY signal is SO straightforward to make!
How Do I Build It?
Cut the boards with a round noticed, handsaw or jigsaw, or in case you have it a chop/miter noticed.
Lay the boards out on a flat floor.
Figure how lengthy to chop the 1×2 again helps and lower them.
Then connect the signal boards to the 1x2s along with your alternative of fastener (or scorching glue).
How to Get the Weathered Look? How to Stain?
Now it is time to paint or stain the wooden again. My boards had been weathered (pallet wooden is sweet) so I utilized nothing. If you’ve gotten new boards, here is just a few choices:
- Weathered Wood Accelerator by Varathane
- Gray Stain
- Steel Wool and Vinegar Treatment
- Leave it exterior within the solar for just a few months (perhaps try this subsequent summer season)
Painting the JOY Letters
Place your retailer purchased wreath within the middle of the signal. Now you’ll be able to determine the place the letters must be.
I used a 1×2 to create my J and Y letters, leaving a 1x2s width across the exterior, after which the letters themselves are 1×2 width broad. The I simply painted contained in the letters with white paint.
Great Kids Craft Project
Then I simply added a nail and hung a wreath on the nail (wreath is from Home Depot). My little niece helped out and was fairly pleased with the completed challenge too.

Perfect on Shelves or Ledges or Mantles!
We do not have a mantle, however this floating white shelf we made a short while again is ideal.
In a small house, wall adorning is the best choice. Just a few enjoyable vacation pillow covers bounce the Holiday spirit across the room, and is simply the correct quantity of Christmas adorning for our small house.
PS – Don’t neglect to pin this wooden Joy signal for subsequent 12 months!
