First, a winter sign.

I have such fond memories of going to a lake to ice skate that I had to make this sign.

It’s available HERE.

Chalk Couture Ice Skate Rental DIY Chalkboard Sign

Funny story though.  Only my dad, mom and sister had ice skates.

What did I use?

Rubber boots!

I’m not sure why, but there it is!

I wish they would have rented young child size at the lake, but sadly not.

The next sign really isn’t any season, but it reminds me of a silent night kind of farmhouse winter scene.

Chalk Couture Life on the Farm Monochromatic Pallet Sign by Knick of Time

It’s available HERE.

I used the barn from the Life on the Farm transfer and one of the Pattern Blocks (it comes with four designs) on a Pallet Sign that I painted black.

Next, I wanted to do the same design in color, with NOEL added.

It’s available in my Etsy shop HERE.

Farmhouse Christmas Red Barn Chalkboard Sign

Several years ago, when I introduced my line of barn quilt stencils, I made most of the example quilt blocks in stained wood, with just one red.  But the red one has just been sitting on a shelf since then.

I noticed it a few days ago while cleaning and decided to dress it up for Christmas.

And it’s available in my Etsy shop HERE.

I used “believe” from a retired transfer and “rejoice” from the  Fa La La Trio.

There are several different Trio designs that all include three small transfers for $9.99 each.

After that, I made a Scripture Christmas sign based on Isaiah 9:6.

It’s available HERE.

Prince of Peace Box frame Christmas sign

It’s on the dark back side of a box frame using the Prince of Peace transfer.  The white front side could still be used for another design.

This transfer includes an entire nativity set, so there are many ways to use it.

The last sign I made for myself using Monogram Letters with Red Chalk Paste on a Box Frame.

I’ll probably add some dangling jingle bells to the sides before hanging.

Joy to the World Wood Christmas Box Frame Sign

If you couldn’t tell, Christmas is my favorite holiday to decorate for, so once I start I just can’t stop.

Well, that’s all the easy DIY signs I have to share for now.

Vaya con Dios,

    Hi Angie! Is there a stencil for the Ice Skate sign? I decorate with ice skates, sleds and snowmen and this would be perfect to add to my decor! Thanks!

    What kind of sealant do you use to make things permanent? And also, do you use it on all your projects or not?
