I think simple wooden signs add charm and warmth to my house. Today I will show you how to make a reversible Christmas sign. It goes with the Holiday Sign Made from a Broken Chair. If you don’t have a broken chair or don’t feel like making a chair hanger you can still make this sign.
It really is a very easy project. I took a piece of pallet wood and using my miter saw cut two pieces 12 inches long. Run a bead of wood glue along the long edge and clamp it until dry.
Once the boards are dry, sand both sides to smooth out the roughness of the pallet boards. Now you can buy a wood board and have the home store cut to size for you if you don’t have access to a pallet or a saw. By the way, if you like the little red Christmas car ornament you can get the directions here.
The boards won’t have the patina that the pallet boards have but you can certainly give it an age look with dark wax or some wood stain.
For this project, I went to Dollar Tree and bought the foam Christmas shapes. I bought the tree and snowflake, they also have an angel, ornament, and a gingerbread man.
Trace around the tree on one side of the board and the snowflake on the other side.
Paint the tree in a Christmas green and then again with green glitter craft paint. I used a small star stencil for the top. Fill in with gold glitter paint.
The snowflake is painted with white craft paint. I painted over the entire piece using the twinkle glitter paint.
To hang it I measured in an inch on either side of the top and drilled a pilot hole. I put a dab of wood glue in the holes and screwed in eye screws. A screwdriver is too large to fit through the smaller hole so use an awl to twist the screw eye in.
A length of green rope was cut and tied in each eye screw. To prevent it from coming loose or unraveling put a little bit of tacky glue on the knot.
Now you can hang it from the Chair Hanger or a decorative picture hanger hook. It really is easy to make a reversible Christmas sign don’t you think?
