DIY Hand Painted Christmas Joy Sign

DIY Hand Painted Christmas Joy Sign


Recently I found it amusing to do it yourself some hand painted signs, especially on this end of the year, there are so many occasion to celebrate. A simple diy sign can really do a great job on your home decor. And after I made Fall Sign, Halloween Sign, Thanksgiving Sign, now it’s time for Christmas Sign! A jolly season that will end the year in joy.

So what did I prepare for my Grateful Thanksgiving sign?

  • Balsa wood plank
  • White spray paint
  • Black acrylic paint
  • White acrylic paint
  • Red acrylic paint
  • Green acrylic paint
  • Gold acrylic paint
  • Silver acrylic paint
  • Paint brush
  • Drawing pen
  • Scissors


I hand painted this sign, so not much crafting steps to do, but more to the painting works :

  1. Cut the balsa wood plank in desired dimension, mine was 14.5 inches x 4 inches (36 cm x 10 cm). I choose balsa wood because it’s an easy wood to work with, especially the plank, it’s thin and you can even cut it with scissors.
  2. Spray paint the wooden cutting block with white spray paint. Don’t spray it evenly, so it would leave a rustic look. Leave the edges to be in its wooden color character. Let it dry.
  3. Draw a sketch of the sentiment and the jingle balls plus holy foliage with pencil.
  4. Draw the “Joy” word with drawing pen, it’s a lot easier than painting it.
  5. Paint the red and gold jingle bells with the holy foliage. Let it dry.
  6. Don’t forget to add some shading to the jingle balls.
  7. The Christmas Joy Sign is finished!


It is a simple diy sign, I love the word “Joy”, because it reflects Christmas and also reminds me to be joyful all year-long. And the jingle balls feels like the best Christmas touch that makes everything merrier. This hand painted Joy sign is a great decoration to express your joyful feeling to welcome Christmas in coming winter season.



I will welcome this winter with more Christmas diy! So, make sure you follow me to get more creative inspiration for your Christmas holiday decor.


See you!

Be joyful creative!
