Today I’m sharing a Coastal Christmas Tree Sign tutorial! This sign idea has been on my to-do list for years and I’m so excited to finally make it. I love decorating the house with a coastal feel for Christmas. Last year I made these Coastal Christmas trees for the blog. I love sharing coastal crafts with you guys and letting you see you can add a coastal touch to all your holidays.
So let’s get started and I’ll show you how to make a DIY Christmas Sign with textured paint!
Coastal Christmas Tree Sign Supplies:
- DIY Wood Pallet Sign
- Glitter Paint
- Palette knife
- Texture Paint
- Cutting Machine
- Chalk Paint
- Transfer Paper
- Weeding Tool
- Hot Glue
Step 1 – Paint Sign
Paint your wooden pallet desired color. I choose a white chalk paint for this step. I really wanted my textured paint of the tree to POP!
Step 2 – Cut and Weed Stencil
Cut and weed your vinyl stencil. If your using your cutting machine for your stencil, then cut it out on vinyl. I found this great stencil in the Silhouette library for $1.00.
Once you have weeded your stencil it’s time to add the transfer paper. This will help transfer your stencil to the wood perfectly.
Step 3 – Add Stencil
Let’s add our stencil to the painted pallet sign. Make sure to smooth out any bubbles so the textured paint doesn’t bleed through.
Now we have a perfect stencil!
Step 4 – Fill in Stencil
My FAVORITE part…. adding our paint! Since this is a textured paint you will need to use a palette knife for this step.
I did not smooth out the paint since I wanted my sign to have more dimension and texture.
Step 5 – Remove Stencil
When you think you have covered the stencil completely, gently remove it and you should end up with the most gorgeous textured pattern. I didn’t get a picture of this step, because you gotta move fast!
Step 6 – Add Starfish
Finally let’s add our tree topper! The starfish! I added a little glitter paint to the starfish for a nice sparkle. Then I used some hot glue to add my starfish to the top.
Ok, I know I’m partial to this project but I LOVE IT!! With just a couple supplies I had this Coastal Christmas Tree Sign made in no time! It will fit in perfectly with my Coastal Christmas decor. I try to make a new project every year.
You can really see the textured metallic paint from all angles shine.
This sign will look great on the mantle for Christmas. You could even add some commend strips to the back and hang on the wall.
As always, thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this coastal Christmas craft. If coastal’s not your thing then you can make any kind of Christmas sign with these supplies. Here’s another textured sign I made for Fall.
Make sure to stop by and see another DIY Christmas Sign I made last year using the same pallet sign. These pallets are perfect for DIY signs.
