Watch the Christmas Craft tutorial video:
- white foam poster board
- wood print adhesive/contact paper
- knife/cutting tool
- Red truck with tree ornament
- Measuring tape or rule
Step 1: Cut your board
The white foam board serves as the backing for your sign. Figure out where you want to place your sign and cut the size of your picture accordingly.
Step 2: Add your frame
Using the wooden contact paper, cut strips that will go around the white poster board to make it look like a finished/framed photo.
TIP: Cut strips twice as wide as you'll need. For instance, if you want a .5 inch frame around your picture, then cut 1 inch pieces. The extra width will fold over to the back. If you cut this too short, it may not stick/hold very well and you'll need to add some tape like I did.
Step 3: Create your picture
I created the “Farm Fresh Christmas Trees” picture in Canva, then printed it off. I cut out each line and used a glue stick to apply it to the white poster board.
Once all your text is on the picture, get a hot glue gun and add a few dots of glue to the red truck ornament then hold it firmly in place for about a minute.
TIP: Lay the ornament on the poster board first, taking note of where the ornament will hit the board. Next, just apply hot glue to the three points where the ornament touches the board. Due to the 3D nature of the tree on the truck, it will not lay perfectly flat. You could also use a frame to create more of a diorama finish that conceals the 3D nature a bit better… the frames were just too small for the area I wanted to place this.
