A Christmas Sign Craft

Many months ago I pinned a Christmas sign that I absolutely loved. 
You can find it on Etsy and it really is gorgeous.

The only problem was that it was a little over $100 after shipping costs. 
Ok, that's not such a little problem on our budget. That's a huge issue
So I did what any normal person would do...I decided to craft my own.

I had an old cabinet door from when we remodeled our bathroom, I had a free sample of green paint that I really loved and my lovely Silhouette machine that my husband purchased for me a couple years ago as my Christmas present. I already had white vinyl and transfer paper from crafting some Christmas gifts last year. 

I knew that I didn't want my sign to look exactly like the one pictured above. I like color and I love to decorate with red and green for Christmas. 

So my husband sanded down the cabinet door for me and I put three coats of paint on it. I opened up my Silhouette program on my computer and began finding the fonts that I wanted and guessing what sizes to make them to make it fit and look good. I also purchased (with a credit I still had in my account) a nativity star from the Silhouette store to complete my design. 

This project didn't cost me much at all, just time. Cabinet door was free and the paint sample was free. The only thing that I purchased was the vinyl and that was over a year ago. It's always fun to put together a fun Christmas piece that was very minimal in cost. 

I'm so glad I got around to this before Christmas! I am in love with it. It truly finishes off our Christmas shelf.
