Hi! Since you guys seemed to like this project, I thought I’d post a quick tutorial on how we made this DIY Christmas Sign Post to hide all our ugly wires. It’s pretty self explanatory and easy, but I’ll tell ya how we did it anyway.
My husband came up with this idea. Isn’t it cute?
Here is the Step by Step…
First he bought a 10ft pvc pipe at Home Depot and some red duct tape. I stuck the duct tape all around the pipe to make it look like a candy cane.
Then we used a scrap piece of wood from the garage to make the signs. He cut the wood in half (I will use the other half for another project) and then I painted it white. Then we cut the wood to look like arrows.
Next, I used my red Paint Marker to paint the words onto the signs. Paint Markers are so cool and are sold at all craft stores. I went through my fonts on my computer and looked for anything that I thought looked Christmasy, and even downloaded a few new fonts, then used those as a guide. I hand drew these but you could use a stencil or transfer paper to make an outline then fill in with the paint markers. They are not perfect but I think that adds to the charm.
To attach these to the pole we nailed in some u-hooks and using a stick we stuck them thru the holes on the pvc pipe to hold them in place.
And that is it. Easy!
And here it is my DIY Christmas Sign Post. Looks a lot better than just a plain white pvc pipe.
