A Christmas Sign and My 2013 Christmas Mantel Tour

In this post I would like to share a Christmas sign that I made for my vintage sign holder. 

Since this sign is going on my mantel,  I thought I would also go ahead and share my Christmas mantel.

Here is the YouTube video showing you everything in detail.

Here is the information on my sign.

I bought this vintage sign holder at an antique store in Granbury, Texas.  I decided to make a sign for it using some craft supplies. 

I gathered a paper collection by The Girls' Paperie called Tinsel and Twig. It is an older collection that has been in my stash for a long time. It is so pretty. Not sure what took me so long to finally use it!

The first thing I did was cut my paper to fit the holder. It slides into the holder from the top. 

I then used some paint and stencils to decorate the paper. I just wanted to add some extra texture and color to the paper. 

I put the paper into the sign so that I could now add the other layers to the sign. 

I used my Silhouette cameo and cut files from the Silhouette online store to decorate my sign. 

All the cuts were made using the Tinsel and Twig paper collection. 

The first piece that I cut was this banner. 

Next I added a set of 5 holiday trees. 

I then added a cute church building and a lamp post. 

I then added this title piece that says, "Tis The Season To Be Jolly."

Here it is finished. 

I used pop dots to glue down the saying, church, lampost, and a couple of the trees. 

I wanted it to look dimensional from the mantel. 

I have placed it on the corner of my mantel surrounded by my homemade tinsel yarn tree cones. 

Here are the pictures of  my mantel.

Here is the sign, tree cones, and my homemade stocking holders.

Here is my faux window and yarn wreath that I made last year. The red birds are from Hobby Lobby. 

Behind the window I place fake snow and some battery operated LED lights. 

These are my other gilt eyelash yarn cone trees. 

This is my fireplace cover that my husband made for us. The red lanterns have little gifts and balls around the flameless candles. The lit snowman was bought years ago at a craft fair and is still in great condition. 

Here is an overview of my tree and mantel. 

Love this view!!
