DIY Christmas Sign and Mrs. Claus Printable

 I may not love to cook and bake, but I do love cooking up new projects and printables to share with you all, and I’m really excited with how adorable my latest DIY Christmas sign turned out!

I had so many sweet compliments on the Mrs. Claus Cookie Company wooden sign I made, that I decided to design a printable chalkboard sign version that anyone can print for themselves, without needing to mess with making a stencil or painting.  I’m also including the tutorial to make this easy rustic wooden frame, although you can also just print the sign and put it in a frame.

I gave the print a red chalkboard background, and changed the letters and wording a bit from my original sign, and added a cute rolling pin at the bottom.

To make the frame, a wood strip into 4 pieces.  I used furring strips, because they are rough cut, and give a rustic look.  The 2 longer pieces were cut in 14″ lengths, and the shorter ones were cut 7-3/4″.  I stained them all and allowed them to dry, then used my palm sander to distress them.

To assemble the frame, most people would use either L-brackets or mending braces, but I didn’t have either on hand.  I really wanted to get the project finished and photographed, so my husband rooted through my can full of rusty bits and pieces and found 4 old hinges, which worked fine too.  Whatever works, right?  I didn’t bother staining the back sides.  What you do see stained is just where I made a mess while staining the front sides.

I didn’t want to permanently attach the print to the frame, so I removed the  cardboard back from another photo frame, and used painter’s tape to secure the print to the cardboard.  After the holidays, I can switch out this print for another one, without having to make a new frame.  My Chalkboard Prayers signs will look wonderful in this frame.

The cardboard back I used has an attached stand, but you can also attach D-rings, or sawtooth hangers to the frame for wall hanging.

Just screw the cardboard back into the back of the wood frame, and you’re ready to hang your DIY Christmas sign!
