I've been looking for a fun graphic piece for our home that has some sort of cute little holiday message or countdown to Christmas day, but I'm finding it hard to find one that suits our style and aesthetic. So, I created a modern and sleek Chrismas sign that is versatile, functional and one-of-a-kind!
- 1/4" Birch Plywood (ours was 8 1/2" x 10 1/2")
- Plexi glass (8" x 10" sheet)
- Electric drill with a 1/4" drill bit
- (4x) 1/4 " bolts, 1 1/2" long
- (4x) 1/4" nuts
- (4x) 1/4" zinc rod coupling nuts
- Painters tape
- Glass cleaner
Begin by taping off each corner of your plexiglass and wood to prevent tear-out.
Drill holes in each corner of the plexiglass and wood about a half inch away from the edges.
Place the four screws in each hole of the plexi glass, followed by the zinc rod coupling nuts on the backs of the screws.
Slide the plywood through the four screws to attach the plexiglass and wood together. Simply screw on the nuts to secure your sign and to complete your project!
You can easily make this sign as big as you would like! I think it would be so fun as a large, leaning element in the home. Depending on your space of course, but we opted for a smaller sign to simply lean above the fireplace. We have a lot of Christmas decor elements on the floor, so to save space we created it so it could easily transfer from one area to another.You could even hang it on the wall by simply attaching pretty ribbon on the back.
You have so many options for displaying a graphic message - try dry erase marker (or other washable marker), cut vinyl or a combination of both just to list a few! I love having options - don't you?
