Yeah I finished my 1st Christmas DIY sign! Yeah to me! Little did I know that Primer sticks to you. Sticks to everything so be careful if you are using this instead of regular white paint. Since we have a construction business I’m pretty much privy to lots of material on hand.
First, I kept some pallet boards from a couple of deliveries. It was about to hit the trash when I had a brilliant idea to paint a Christmas sign! My hubby rolled his eyes as he saw this pallet board back at home!
I then rolled on 2 coats of white primer, let it dry and took it on back to continue.
I cut out and tape my stencils and roll on my red and green acrylic paints. I must confess the word Christmas was too long or my wood piece was too short! I then shortened and went with just XMAS instead. I did clean up a bit with the white paint much like using white out.
I’m including some links for y’all in case you might get the DIY bug yourself!
As far as the pallet board, I would suggest go to your nearest Home Depot, Lowes, or General Lumber store.
Here’s my finished product! So much fun being creative!
