Supplies you’ll need to make this sign:
- 9×9 Box Frame
- Santa Face Sign Kit
- Santa Claus Is Coming To Town Chalk Couture Transfer
- Shiplap and Joy Chalk Couture Transfer
- Fluff Dixie Belle Chalk Paint
- Midnight Sky Dixie Belle Chalk Paint
- Makeup Sponges
- Spray Bottle
- Candy Apple Chalkology Paste
- Black Velvet Chalkology Paste
- Small Squeegee
- Artist Tool Set
- Starbond Medium Instant Adhesive
Begin by painting the ring and Santa face with a base coat. I used the color Fluff from Dixie Belle Chalk Paint, but any white paint would work.
I like to use a makeup sponge when painting smaller cutouts. When using this method, simply load your makeup sponge with paint and apply it to the surface in a pouncing motion.
Next, use the color Midnight Sky to paint the round wooden cutout.
I also used a makeup sponge for this step.
Next, add some splashes of white paint.
Do this by watering down a bit of paint, loading it onto a paintbrush and splashing it randomly onto the surface.
You’ll end-up with something like this.
Now, let’s add the Chalk Couture!
First, cut the bottom portion of the transfer off the sheet. Then, line up the Santa head and place it under the transfer area.
Now apply the red paste to the hat portion of the transfer. I used a small precision tool to paint a line where the red paste will end and the black will start.
See below for a visual look at where the red paste should be applied.
Peel back the transfer from where you just used the red paste. Then lay it back down so you can add the rest of the details with black paste.
You can see here how I used the same precision tool to paint in some of the harder to get details.
Then, finish the rest with a small squeegee.
To add a little bit more character to Santa, I used some watered down peachy-colored paste to add a flesh tone to his face.
Next, place the ring under the words and use red paste to add the details.
To add the lines to the box frame, use the Shiplap & Joy Transfer and black paste.
Once everything is dry, use your adhesive of choice to put it all together.
First, assemble the sign portion.
And finally, add it to the box frame to complete the look!
What a perfect way to add Christmas décor to your home!
