Gold and White Christmas Sign

To go next to her stunning starburst mirror Christmas tree, Jen from Tatertots & Jello created a holiday sign that also reflects her gold, white, and grey color theme. Jen purchased a cheap shelf board for the sign and used her handy dandy Silhouette for the art. Believe me when I say the Silhouette makes sign-making a breeze. And, instead of $69, Jen made her sign for only $12!

While vacationing on the Jersey Shore, Lauren of The Thinking Closet picked up a few really sweet ruler-framed chalkboard signs at a little shop on the boardwalk. After giving those two signs away as gifts and wishing she had more, Lauren decided she could easily make her own and set to work with rulers, chalkboard paint, and a few other supplies. While there was an “almost-craft-fail” along the way,  Lauren persevered and ended up with her own signs that are perfect for photo shoots and gifts.

Michelle from Chalkboard Blue was inspired to put a Halloween spin on vintage typewriter keys art and create her own “spooky” hand painted sign.

Michelle says that her new Halloween sign is one of her faves!
