Good morning! I am so excited to be partnering up with Remodelaholic again to bring you a fun Christmas themed blog hop. You might remember a few months ago when we had a 2x4 blog hop, and I shared my jumbo tic tac toe game with you. Now I am excited to share another fun project with you. This huge DIY Joy Sign is so easy to make, and it would look fabulous on your front porch. Let’s get started! :)

For this project you will need just a few supplies:
a 1x12 six foot board
white paint
paint brush
vinyl lettering
Cricut or Silhouette machine
small wreath (I found this one at Hobby Lobby)
hammer & a nail

First, I painted my board white & let it dry.

Then I applied my vinyl lettering.

Then all I had to do was nail in a small finishing nail & hang my wreath. That’s it!

I love the farmhouse, rustic Christmassy look it gives my front porch. :)

  4. This is a perfect welcome sign for visitors. It's brilliant that it's reversible for twice the use. But you could really leave JOY up all year long if you wanted :)
