Santa’s Reindeer Sign

When I saw this sign over at 36th Avenue – I totally fell in love with it and knew that I wanted one for my Christmas Décor – so I busted out the wood and paint and got busy creating and came up with this fun sign with all of Santa’s Reindeer!

This project was so easy to make! You can make one too!
To make this sign I found some scrap MDF (my sign is 9”x 24”) and applied a couple coats of white paint. MDF totally sucks up paint so I use toll paint whenever I can. I cut out the names of the reindeer in vinyl and using the “bones” I created a template. Then filled the names in with red and silver and when it was almost dry I pulled off the vinyl. I used a paint brush to add a white line to the O in Rudolph to make it look like a shiny nose and was done! I love the simplicity and the nice clean lines of just the names painted down the middle.

I used PLAID paint – whicker white, Lipstick Red and Metallic Silver.
The font is Franklin Gothic Demi Condensed.

I just think it is so fun and love having a fun new item to add to my Christmas collection!!
