This year, I finally felt like I had my Christmas decor act together. I mean, it was nothing that Martha Stewart would exclaim over, but it was relatively cohesive and pretty. And guess what? We did it all within our (tiny) budget. A combination of being patient and waiting for stellar sales + buying during prior years’ post-Christmas decor clearance + DIYing my own decor was a winning solution.

To start, you’ll need a reversed photocopy of your desired image. I used this gorgeous image from The Graphics Fairy.

Then it’s a simple process from there. Essentially, you will “paint” the printed side of your photocopy with Modge Podge and then apply that to a piece of plywood or similar. After it dries, the top layers of paper are gently rubbed off with a sponge revealing the image underneath. A little sanding, some polycrylic to seal, and it’s basically done. To frame my Christmas wall art, I just used furring strips cut to size and stained.

To make the furring strips easier to attach, I glued supports to the back of the sign, as shown. Then I just added wood glue around all the edges and secured the furring strips. And done!

Since I already had most of the supplies on hand, I was able to make these signs without spending really anything. Just the money for copies, a couple furring strips, and Modge Podge. That’s what I call budget-friendly.
