Let the mantel wish Christmas with an adorable homemade sign that’s worked up with wooden boards. Once they are cut to fit the size of your mantel, you apply a grey stain, followed by coating the sign with white paint and sanding it all down for a lovely, distressed look. A stencil is used to trace the letters, adorning them with bright red paint.
