It’s much easier to make then you would probably imagine (See my tutorial HERE for more details on how I build my frames). Since I already had the frame build from a past project, all this project cost me was $3 for a wreath hanger & some command strips & velcro to secure it to the door.

I am obsessed with pine. Must be my native Californian roots. So naturally, I love decorating with fresh greenery during the holidays. This year I wanted to do some creative Christmas signs throughout the house, and decided what better thing to illustrate than pine trees?

To start off, I painted over my previous artwork on this sign (a wedding instagram sign I made for my sister in law.)

Then, I got out a clear three ring binder plastic sheet. To create a design, I used my Printer Transfer method HERE. In a nut shell, I created a graphic in photoshop, flipped it so it would print opposite, then carefully centered it, ink down, on my empty canvas.

For this one, I wanted to do the penning in myself, so I just lightly rubbed the ink onto the board to act as a guide.

You don’t have to do it this way at all- but I just hate committing to a design, so being able to move it around before placing it is a plus for me.

Then I inked in the lettering.

Next, I added some little scrawny pine trees.

I didn’t want it to scream Christmas as much as I wanted it to look rustic & natural.
