Happy Holidays Chalkboard Sign

How to Create a Happy Holidays Chalkboard Sign with a Simple Button Bow.

I really enjoy working with vinyl and love coming up with simple Holiday DIY projects.

The Happy Holidays Sign was one of the projects we created in last month’s Holiday Workshop.

For my sign, I used Styletech Craft’s Ultra Metallic Glitter Adhesive Vinyl in red, green and

white.  The Ultra Metallic Glitter Vinyl has a white backing which ensures the colors stay bright

and true no matter what surface you apply it too.

To start my project…                                                                                 (*amazon affiliate links)

  • I used a piece of Wood Hardboard*.  (it’s like a hole-less peg board) I cut mine 5 1/2 x 7 1/2″.
  • Drill two small 3/8″ holes in the top of the board to use for hanging the sign.
  • Paint the board using DecoArt Black Chalkboard Paint*.
  • Lightly sand the board using 3M Sandpaper, 220-Grit*.  This smooths the board and allows a little bit of the brown board to show through for a vintage look.
  • Wipe the board with a clean soft cloth.

  • I applied the words on the chalkboard using Styletech Clear Vinyl Transfer Tape*.
  • I applied the word “Holidays” first and lined the word “Happy” over top.
  • Cut a small white snowflake using white ultra metallic vinyl and add onto the sign above the word happy.
  • Create a “Button Bow”  for the top of your “Happy Holidays Chalkboard Sign”.
  • Directions for “button bow” below.
  • Add twine to the two top holes for hanging.
  • Glue Button Bow onto the top of the “Happy Holidays Chalkboard Sign” using craft glue*.

How to Make a Holiday Button Bow…

  • Fold ribbon in thirds.  (like your getting ready to tie a tie.)
  • Gather and wrap twine around the center of the ribbon a couple of times and tie tightly.
  • Add a jump ring to the jingle bell and add onto one end of the twine and tie.
  • Add button to both ends of the twine and tie to the center of the bow.
  • Trim the ends of the ribbon and twine.

Got any old wood scraps lying around?

My Dad used to keep a box of old wood scraps for the kids to build and play with.

I grabbed a few of the worn out blocks for my holiday projects.

  • Use Vinyl Transfer Tape* to pick up and apply the word directly onto the block of wood.
  • Rub over the letters using a vinyl scraper tool to remove bubbles and help the vinyl cling to the wood surface better.
  • Remove transfer tape.

  • Tie a simple ribbon around holiday berries and glue it to the top of the painted wood block using a quick dry glue*.
  • I placed the block onto an old vintage metal base scrounged and saved from my Dad’s garage.  (I love reusing cool old vintage junk.)
  • The Stag and Merry Christmas images were also created using my Silhouette Cameo and applied the same way as the Believe block.)

really simple Holiday Décor.
