I love having fun signs in my home. I’m not super into decorating for the holidays, but a fun sign and a small tree make good aesthetic additions during the Christmas season. Today I’m going to show you how to make this easy Christmas Sign! Grab some vinyl, greenery, and a canvas for this simple tutorial!

Easy Christmas Sign Tutorial

You will need:

  • SVG Design (You can download mine here or check out some fun options here)
  • Adhesive Vinyl (I used Oracal 651 Permanent Vinyl – Red)
  • Transfer Tape
  • Framed Canvas or Reverse Canvas (Mine is 10″ by 17″)
  • Modge Podge
  • Sponge Brush
  • Application Tool(or credit card, pan scraper, etc)
  • Mini Ornaments, Christmas Branches, Mini Pinecones, etc.
  • Glue Gun

1 | Paint with Modge Podge

Paint your surface with Modge Podge and let it dry. This will give your lettering something to really stick to so that they don’t peel or fall off.

2 | Cut and Weed your Design

You can use any design or quote you want. I went with a twist on The Night Before Christmas. I live where it really doesn’t get cold during the winter. We rarely use our heaters, and the AC is on year-round, so I found this fun quote quite fitting!

And all through the house,

The AC was running because

We live in the South!

Because my lettering was longer than I had a cutting mat for, I used a pentagon cut in the same spot for both sections so that I could line them up perfectly.

3 | Apply Transfer Tape

Apply the transfer tape to the lined-up vinyl. Rub the transfer tape onto the vinyl and backing with an application tool (credit card, pan scraper, etc.) Carefully remove the backing from the vinyl. Make sure to remove your marker (mine is a pentagon) if you used one to line up your lettering.

4 | Transfer to Canvas

Line up the vinyl where you want it on the canvas. You can get really precise with it, but I just do it by eye. Then, using the application tool, rub the tool back and forth across the top of the vinyl, and transfer tape to make the vinyl stick to the canvas. Carefully peel the transfer tape back leaving the vinyl on the canvas.

5 | Decorate Corners with Mini Ornaments and Christmas Branches

Layout the decorations, then hot glue them in place once you are happy with the arrangement. Here I used faux lambs ear branches, mini pinecones, and pieces of a berry garland.

    Adorable! I live on the Gulf Coast so I can attest to the fact that the A/C is usually running on Christmas Day. I found you on the link up at Across the Blvd, and I think my readers would love to see this post. It’s right up our alley. I have 3 link parties that I’d love for you to share on. Happiness is Homemade runs Sundays thru Thursdays, You’re the Star Blog Hop runs month long with new features posted on Mondays, and Traffic Jam Weekend runs from Thursdays at 5pm CST thru Sundays. I saw that you’re a Dr. Pepper addict. I am ridiculous with my cokes. I drink like a 12 pack a day. Thank God for a fast metabolism for me ha!

    Happy Thanksgiving!
