I’m in love with how this DIY O Holy Night Sign turned out!
With Christmas fast approaching, I’ve been brainstorming decorating ideas for my home.
One of the things I keep coming back to is a “Christmas tree farm” idea.
I’m not even sure where it started, but I’ve been seeing those red trucks with trees on them everywhere and it reminds me of a tree farm.
I have also been wanting to either buy or create my own sign for our mantel. Something that would really make a statement and tie the entire space together.
When the DIY Sign Idea Hit Me
I was at a local dollar store, browsing and thinking about this sign dilemma.
That’s when I spotted it: a white board, 24×36 inches.
And I knew I wouldn’t be buying a large sign but rather “making” my own, so to speak.
So how would I turn a white board into a DIY O Holy Night sign?
One word: Printables!
Pinterest is filled with beautiful images, drawings and art for every season. It’s a decorator’s dream.
I had the idea to print a printable, then attach it to the white board somehow.
And that’s exactly what I did.
DIY O Holy Night Sign Tutorial:
- Buy your white board or preferred “sign method.”
- Choose your printable (Download the one I used here). If you have issues with this, go here instead.
- Go to Walmart or Costco to have your desired size printed.
- Attach it to the board using sticky tac and/or tape.
Yes, it it really that simple and not at all glamorous.
Unfortunately I didn’t take photos of this since I made it in the evening, but I do have this from one of my Instagram stories about it.
I used mainly tape, sticking them on the edges along the board, then slowly placing my sign on starting from the top.
For larger size prints, especially one like a 24×36, it’s cheaper to get it printed at Costco, but only by $5.
Depending on if you’re planning to use quite a few printables it would be worth going there, but overall both places offer very similar prices.
Costco’s print quality is far better though in my opinion.
I have no complaints about my print from Walmart (it looks beautiful), but from experience developing personal pictures, Walmart doesn’t come close to Costco’s quality.
For printables, either one will work. I was so happy with the end result!
Isn’t is just the most perfect anchor to this “tree farm” display?
I love how it looks like I could just walk right into that forest of trees, going on a fun little tree hunting adventure!
Would you try something like this?
