How To Paint a Christmas Tree Sign

Looking for holiday decor projects? Try this Christmas tree sign, which uses eco-friendly materials and is just as green as a Christmas tree!

Every year I like to do a tree-inspired holiday decor DIY. Last year it was my mason jar snow globes and this year it’s a Christmas tree sign made out of words. And the words I chose? Why, lyrics from “Oh, Christmas Tree,” of course.

I used the same method to paint this Christmas tree sign as I did for my love arrow sign, which I originally learned how to do here. I thought a video of how to create a handpainted sign – holiday-related or not – would be helpful so I made one… just for YOU! (To be honest, it’s also for myself when I forget how to do this and have to watch my own video to remember. Kind of like how I have to follow my own recipes when I forget how to make something.)

So here’s my video of how to paint a Christmas tree sign. You can also follow the written instructions down below if that’s more your learning-style. Happy handpainting!

5 Current Home Decor Trends That Are Eco-Friendly

Home decor trends may come and go, but there's one trend that better not be going anywhere and that's eco-friendly home decor!

Home trends may come and go, but there’s one trend that better not be going anywhere and that’s eco-friendly decor! I truly believe that this is where the design and decor world is headed anyway. Essentially, it has to. Our planet’s population is growing and our resources are depleting. And I strongly believe that NOW, not tomorrow, not next year, is the time to make a change.

Of course, change can be overwhelming. Which is why the best way to do it is in small, easy to manage bits. If you haven’t done so yet, greening your home decor is such a simple (and fun!) way to make a change.

Nature Inspired Holiday Decor + Holiday Home Tour

Nature inspired holiday decor is an eco-friendly way to create a feeling of calm beauty in your home. It's like walking through the woods on a winter day.

Once again, it’s only days until Christmas and I’m just now posting my holiday home tour for the year. I started out the season quite organized and had most of my decorations up at the end of November. I also had almost all of my Christmas shopping done. But then December happened and… I don’t actually know what happened. Illness, appointments, work deadlines, misbehaving children all mixed in with the hoopla of the holidays created a perfect storm of insanity and now here we are. The eve of Christmas Eve already. But hey, that’s okay. Wabi-sabi – the Japanese art of imperfection – is going to be big in 2018.
