This “JOY” sign was SO easy to make, and it will look great by my side door once I get a few more decorations in place. The process was a breeze and the materials were cheap. I bought white J and Y letters and a half-priced wreath for the O. My son Robert found a scrap piece of siding — about 1 foot by 4 feet — at a building site. I painted it a light shade of green, using house paint I had on hand.
Easy peasy. Then I used washi tape to wrap around the “J” to make it candy-cane-striped.
I then painted the J and Y with ModPodge for Exteriors to help protect them from the weather. I nailed the wreath O in place and attached the J and Y with wood glue. Over and done in no time! Here’s the completed vignette.
