· · · ·

This 3-piece scrap wood HO HO HO sign is a fun and easy craft project that will bring a smile to all who see it. Make one today, and let the season begin!

As I am now so focused on Christmas, I totally forgot to ask you how your Halloween went. I hope you had a great one! Ours was a blast! We had more trick-or-treaters than the past few years, so that really made my day. And of course Greg once again managed to make Halloween a memorable night for us with his colorful Facebook posts!

Yup, that’s my Babes, LOL 😀

Say what? Ooohhh, you are asking about that Christmas wreath above the door? Why, yes, that is the exact same wreath you saw on this post back in late May – you know, the one he never took down from last Christmas! Yeah, it’s still there. He even left it there for Halloween! But at least he is creative, I gotta give him that! Instead of taking it down, he just put a zombie right in the middle of it.

Boys will be boys.

Anyway, enough of that silliness, let’s have a look at my first DIY Christmas decor of the year, shall we?

HO HO HO Christmas Decor Tutorial

To make this HO HO HO Christmas decor, I used 3 pieces of scrap wood cut to 7″ by 11″, a 5 inch hole saw drill bitred and green craft paint, FolkArt’s chalk paint in Sheepskin color, some ribbon and 3 big sleigh bells I bought from Dollar Store. Keep in mind that Dollar Store always runs out of their seasonal decor stock about a month before the season. So if you can’t find the big sleigh bells there, you can try these on Amazon.

As usual, I started off with the wood.

Let me rephrase that: as usual, I started off with Greg. Since he was right in the middle of a tough project, I put on my sweetest smile and asked if he could cut some holes in the scrap wood – hey, a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do, right? Ok, maybe I got his attention right after telling him how awesome he was, but in the end, I got him to do that part for me…hehehe 😉

Using the 5 inch hole saw drill bit, he cut the holes I needed.

Here is a hint with the wood: I could only find scrap hardwood in Greg’s woodshop. Hence I asked Greg to drill these big holes. But if you use pine or any other soft wood, this step can easily be done with a hand drill.

Once the holes were cut, I painted the boards with 2 coats of FolkArt’s chalk paint in Sheepskin color.

While the paint was drying, I chose the font I liked (mystery quest) and using my Cricut, I cut the letter H stencils on repositionable vinyl.

With the help of transfer paper, I placed the stencils on the white painted boards.

When stencils were on, I stenciled the letters. I used red craft paint for two of them and green on the last one, then let the paint dry.

In the meantime, I worked on the sleigh bells I bought from the Dollar Store. As I didn’t like the gold strings, I cut those off.

Then, I cut a small piece of ribbon, folded it in half and put a knot right in the middle. The knot was only to mark the middle (length-wise) of the ribbon.

By this time, the paint was nice and dry, so I distressed the letters a little. With the rest, I didn’t want the paint showing the wood underneath, so I didn’t distress the white painted parts, but sanded only a little to smooth the surface.

Next, using my glue gun, I glued the 2 ends of the ribbon to the back of the jingle bells, and after that, I glued the knotted part to the inner-upper-side of the boards.

When all the bells were hot glued, I trimmed the faux greenery a little so the bells would fit in the holes properly and hang freely. And that was that!
