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!

Eco-Friendly Christmas Stocking Stuffer Ideas

Who said stocking stuffer gifts can't be environmentally friendly? Hop aboard the green Christmas train with these thoughtful - and eco-friendly - gifts.

Ah, the Christmas stocking. Stocking stuffer gifts are unfortunately one of those holiday traditions that can be… well… really wasteful. Don’t get me wrong, I love stockings and I certainly would not advocate for getting rid of them, but they shouldn’t be an excuse to buy crap. You know what I’m talking about. Cheap trinkets. Chocolates wrapped in plastic in a box wrapped in plastic. Gag gifts that are good for a laugh and then immediately discarded. I’ll admit, I’ve thoughtlessly bought junky stocking stuffer gifts in the past. But this year I vow to do better. Shall we do better together?
