I found a wood tray at Hobby Lobby and thought it was PERFECT for a sign I have been wanting to make! With it being a tray, it made it perfect to hide the batteries for the lights!

Christmas Decor Snowman Believe Sign Directions
I used gesso to seal the wood. Once dry, I followed up with white paint.
I used my Cricut cutting machine to cut the word Believe and a bunch of snowflakes out of vinyl.
I also printed out a snowman, using a laser printer.
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.
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.
I then used the same white paint as before and painted over all the vinyl, in all directions, and let it dry.
Once dry, I painted blue over everything.
Once dry, I pulled up all the vinyl, which exposed the white beneath.
I then drilled holes into 20 of the snowflakes.
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.
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.
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.
That’s it but let’s see how it lights up!
Be sure to PIN IT for later!
