Supplies for the Christmas Decor Snowman Believe Sign

Christmas Decor Snowman Believe Sign Directions

Step 1

I used gesso to seal the wood. Once dry, I followed up with white paint.

Step 2

I used my Cricut cutting machine to cut the word Believe and a bunch of snowflakes out of vinyl.

Step 3

I also printed out a snowman, using a laser printer.

Step 4

I put transfer tape on the word Believe.

After putting it on the painted tray, I added the vinyl onto the sign and burnished it down. I then removed the transfer tape.

Step 5

I laid the snowman on the sign, just so I could figure out the spacing of the snowflakes. I then addend the vinyl snowflakes and burnished everything down.

Step 6

I then used the same white paint as before and painted over all the vinyl, in all directions, and let it dry.

Step 7

Once dry, I painted blue over everything.

Step 8

Once dry, I pulled up all the vinyl, which exposed the white beneath.

Step 9

I then drilled holes into 20 of the snowflakes.

Step 10

I used Mod Podge to decoupage the snowman in place on the tray.

I rubbed down the image, so no bubbles would get trapped under.

It is wise to add Mod Podge over the entire sign.

Then I used water (on the brush) to go over the wet Mod Podge, so it gave it a nice smooth finish.

I wiped the edges clean, with a damp paper towel and let it dry.

Step 11

 Once dry, I added Mod Podge along the bottom edge and sprinkled on fine glitter.

I tapped off the excess glitter and let it dry.

Step 12

I then added the lights to the sign.  It was a strand with 20 lights, which is why I drilled the 20 holes.  You can also tape or velcro the battery box to the back, to keep it in place.
