Dollar Tree Christmas Signs

Dollar Tree Christmas Signs


Hi everyone Welcome back to my channel. So for today’s project We are going to need three of these Halloween signs from Dollar Tree I have already removed all of the glitter from the front of the signs. We will be using the back of all three signs For the first one. I’m going to paint it entirely in red and this is Waverly acrylic paint in Crimson, I believe I picked that up from Walmart and the paintbrush that I’m using to paint it is from the Dollar Tree Now I’m going to set that aside to dry and while it does I’m going to take this little Santa Ensign from Dollar Tree and I’m going to paint the top part of his hat in the same Waverly crimson paint I did not realize that You would still be able to see the hohoho after I painted it, but you know what? It doesn’t bother me at all You can see it right there when I tilt it in the light. You can still see it But I actually kind of like it so instead of trying to paint over it again You could either take a marker and go over the letter so that you can see it even better I just left mine the way it is because I like it like that Now I’m going to take a couple of pieces from a couple of different Christmas pics from Dollar Tree and I’m going to use them to cover up the little hole at the top of his little hat if you wanted to keep these as hanging signs, you could either use that hole to hang it from or Glue a hanger on the back to hang it up But these signs will be leaning signs more of like a farmhouse type of style So I’m going to cover up the hole using that little leaf and these red berries Both from picks from Dollar Tree and I am just adding them on using a little bit of hot glue Now for the end of his hat I have this little fluffy thing, I don’t know It’s like a little fluffy pom-pom and it is actually from a pic that I got from Michaels During their clearance last year for their Christmas pics And I thought it would be nice for Santa to have a little fluffy into his hat So all that’s left to do is to glue his head to his body and I’m just going to lay down a few lines of hot glue to attach it And this is what our Santa sign looks like super cute and really easy For our next sign I’m again going to use the back of this Dollar Tree sign This time I’m going to paint it in a white acrylic paint. I picked this up from Target and Using the same kind of paint brush I’m going to give it a coat of paint And this will be our snowman. So I’m going to use this snowman sign from the Dollar Tree as well Now I didn’t like his nose it was like in a kind of a rosy color So I wanted to take it off and paint it but be more careful than I was I actually tore mine a little bit You can see there. So I had to start peeling it up from the other side and Once it’s off. I’m going to give it a coat of paint and this pumpkin paint I’m going to paint the top of it and all around the sides It was weird because the nose that’s on the picture of the snowman is orange for some reason His carrot nose was like this pink blush color So to reattach it, I’m just using a little bit of hot glue to do that and Now our snowman has a proper orange carrot nose Now for the hole at the top of his head I thought that I would try to plug it up with a little bit of hot glue Some of that hot glue did drip down to the bottom of the sign But I just let it dry and it peeled off with no problem. And then I went over the hot glue with a Sharpie paint pen in black you could also use just a regular sharpie and that would do the trick as well And now that That sign is dry. I want to get him Relatively at the same height as the Santa sign. So I put the two boards together just to give me a good idea of Where I should glue his head down on to the sign Then I also added a little more glue right underneath his scarf to make sure it was extra secure Now for our last sign I will be making unknown so I want it to be shorter than the other signs so I’m taking a ruler and A straight edge and I’m just going to score halfway down the side This one I’m going to make it half as tall as the other two and These signs are then MDF so they do break pretty easily but still be careful because you want to get as clean of a break as you possibly can and I’ll be using the bottom of the sign for my little gnome For this gnome I decided to give him the body of A buffalo check body. So instead of painting it. I’m going to cover it with this placemat from the Dollar Tree So I’m just placing the board down so I know where to make my cuts on the placemat And there is some interfacing in the placemat so you can take it out I kind of worked around it for the most part. So I’m just going to insert my board into this part of the little placemat And the interfacing was sticking out a little too much for my liking So I decided to go ahead and trim it just around the edges like I said You could just take it out completely if you want to but I’m just going to give it a trim so it doesn’t interfere with How I glue the edges together And that’s the next thing that I do I glue the scenes shut Using hot glue you could use tacky glue or a fabric glue, whatever you would like to You get even sew it shut if you would like to do that as well For me hot glue was just the quickest option and it’s a pretty secure hold as well Now I did cut this a little larger than the sign So I wanted to have more of a snug fit. So I’m Gluing putting a line of glue along that scene and just folding over the excess fabric Because I don’t want the board to be moving around the sign when I pick it up. I want it to be really secure and For our little gnome I’m going to use the back of this Sansa sign But before I use the back of it I do want to remove the little nose and mustache This is a little foam piece and also this part of the hat, which is also made of foam I’ve turned the sign over and I’m going to use this Moss chalk paint from Waverly to paint the top of his hat I Really wanted to use like a forest green color, but I didn’t have that in my paint stash So I decided this would be the next best option for our little gnome And make sure you paint the edges as well Now I’m going to place the bottom of the hat back on the side temporarily What I’m trying to do is to see where I should begin painting the nose So I’m going to use a pencil and just sketch out Roughly where the nose of the gnome is going to be After that I remove the little foam piece and I’m going to use this trail tan paint To paint the nose of the gnome on the side And now taking a foam brush from the Dollar Tree and white acrylic paint I’m just going to use the very edge and start making downward strokes To create the beard of the gnome and We will also be giving this gnome a mustache If you wanted to add more dimension to the beard you could go in with streaks of gray and black as well But I just wanted this gnome to have a pure white beard and mustache So I only used the white acrylic paint But gnomes are everywhere so you can get inspiration all over the place and make the gnome The way you want him to be or you can make it a girl gnome, too But I don’t think she’d have a beard And I’m going to go over the nose once again Just to clean up all of those edges where I made the beard and the mustache And once that’s done I’m going to glue the bottom of the hat back on And of course I do the Hat just using a bit of hot glue So here it’s our little gnome head and We are going to attach it to the body again with hot glue Now I did find that I had to add extra hot glue because I wasn’t actually attaching One piece of MDF to another piece of MDF there’s fabric in between So it wants to move and it wants to slip a little bit so I did end up adding More hot glue to the back just to make sure that it was secure and that it wouldn’t move around I Took these galvanized metal words and I decided to hot glue them to the bottom of our signs Now if you wanted to add like Santa boots and a Santa belt, that would be awesome But I wanted these to be really clean and really simple and I thought this was a great way to use these galvanized words, I Decided to put joy on the gnome and peace on our little snowman You could always use a real scarf to go around him and give him a real buttons But this is how our project turned out My favorite has got to be the little gnome. I think he’s just so adorable and Gnomes are everywhere right now They’re definitely trending and the great thing about this project is you can make your gnome any way You would like to make it Drop a comment below and let me know which of the three of these signs is your favorite Thank you guys so much for joining me for today’s video if you enjoy today’s video Please give it a thumbs up.
