Supplies I used to make my Santa Signs:

- Acrylic Paint Brush Set
- Chalk Couture Transfer
- Bright White Chalkology Paste

This first sign idea uses the JOY Sign with Santa Head Kit and a Faux Shiplap Sign Blank from Twin Knobs Woodworks. You can also get the Santa head cut out only. Be sure to take a quick look at everything Twin Knobs has in stock by clicking HERE!
Begin by using a pencil to sketch out Santa’s face.
The pencil marks will help you stay on track with the detail when painting.
You can see that I went with a winking face, but feel free to use whatever Santa face expression you like best!
Next, paint on all of the white details using Silk All-In-One Mineral Paint in the color Whitecap.
The white details include Santa’s beard, hair, his open eye, the brim of his hat, and the ball on the end of his hat.
Next, use the color Apricot to paint on his face.
Then, mix a bit of the Barn Red and Whitecap to create a light pink to paint the split wooden ball detail that will be used for his nose.
Next, use the color Barn Red to paint on his hat.
Finally, use the color Anchor to add details that will give Santa some dimension. Also, be sure to finish off his eyes and cheeks. I used the same mix of Barn Red and Whitecap as I used for his nose on the cheek details.
You can see how I added the appearance of “fluff” to his beard and hat, dots with the end of my paintbrush, and outlined to the entire piece where needed.
Here’s a peek at the finished face!
Now it’s time to paint the letters J and Y using the color Barn Red.
Also, be sure to stain your faux shiplap board with Voodoo Gel Stain in the color Tobacco Road.
Once the letters are dry, add decorative details using the color Whitecap.
To finalize the sign, use your favorite adhesive to glue everything in place.
Feel free to personalize any of the details on this piece to fit your style! A stencil pattern would even be cute on the J & Y, the possibilities are endless.
Isn’t the finished product just perfect with my traditional Christmas décor!
Santa Sign Idea #2!
For this sign idea, you’ll need the Santa Head Cutout from Twin Knobs Woodworks and a few items from Chalk Couture.
First, paint the Santa head with the color Barn Red and let dry.
Then, use the “Here Comes Santa Claus” Transfer and Bright White Chalkology Paste to add some fast, but impressive details.
How cute is this super simple idea! The best part is this project can come together in very little time and still make a big impact.
