This reversible reclaimed wood sign will last from Halloween through Christmas. Using wood letters, this decorative holiday sign is an easy DIY project to add to your seasonal decor.
I really do enjoy tinkering with my decor and making changes throughout the holidays and seasons. However, I do NOT enjoy lugging around a dozen giant storage tubs multiple times a year. Don’t get me started on sorting, organizing, and labeling said tubs.
That’s why I’m always looking to get the most possible use out of my seasonal decor – like using seasonal pillow covers instead of letting the pillows pile up.
I also hate having to store piles of signs and wall decor items. So, why not make them last just a bit longer by making them reversible?
- Reclaimed wood plank – I have a small pile of old barn wood in my garage, but here are some great store-bought options.
- acrylic paint – black, red, and white
- paint brush
- wood letters – found with the unfinished wood supplies at the craft store. Here are some good options.
- hot glue gun and glue sticks
Paint the “m-e-r-r-y” and “b-o-o” letters white and set aside to dry.
Paint one side of the reclaimed wood black. Let dry. Distress the paint lightly with sandpaper. Then, add splatters of white paint. Finally, attach the “b-o-o” letters with hot glue.
Flip the sign over, and paint it red. Let the paint dry before distressing with sandpaper. Attach the “m-e-r-r-y” letters with hot glue.
That’s it! No special cutting machine or fancy supplies required. When Halloween is over, I can just flip the sign around for Christmas.
