I’m absolutely in love with these small signs and I’m going to have them all over my house soon. My kids love them too. They have each taken one. Another thing that I love is that these signs are affordable. Today for my Christmas wood decor at Deck the Home, I’m sharing how to make small wooden Christmas signs.

I made these for a couple local craft shows and they were very popular. The signs are the perfect size for a desk, window sill or any space that just needs a little something.

Let’s Learn How to Make Small Wooden Christmas Signs

1x2 Wood to make Signs for Christmas

Start by deciding how many signs you want to make. I made my signs 5.5 inches long. Then cut the 1×2 with a miter saw (other saws will work too, but this is what I used). Give the ends a light sanding so they are smooth. Out of one 8 foot 1×2 you can make about 17 signs for $7.

DIY painted Christmas Signs

Choose your paint color and paint your signs. I used the Waverly High Performance Semi Gloss Acrylic Paint in Ink. It covered so well, it was my first time using it and now it’s my new favorite craft paint.

Cricut Wooden Christmas Signs

When the signs are drying, I created my designs in Cricut Design Space™. For these designs, I had to ungroup the images and contour some to make them fit the signs (since they are so small). If you are using Cricut Design space, here is my file of the svgs I created.


Cricut Maker Cutting vinyl for simple Christmas signs
