DIY Rustic Wooden Sign Frosty’s Baby Picture

Last year the snowfall season was both ridiculously long and unfortunately not uncommon.  In an attempt to embrace it, I am decorating for Christmas in a snow and ice theme.  Including this DIY Frosty’s baby picture sign.

This Frosty’s baby picture sign literally takes half an hour to make.  The rest is just waiting for the paint to dry.

You can vary this sign to any size or colour you like.  You could also do the same thing with plywood and add a simple frame to it.

To make this one you will need:

10 ” piece of 2 by 12 lumber

220 grit sandpaper

Tiny portion of dark wood stain

Small wooden snowflake

Silver Sharpee or White Paint pen

 

Stain the Background

This board is a leftover from when we were replacing a stair on the back deck.  I just dug through the cast off pile and chose it.  No cutting is always a bonus.  I  don’t recommend buying a piece of lumber for this project.  Try and find a scrap of wood you have laying around, it doesn’t matter what size your sign is, just make sure it is thick enough to stand up on its own.

This sign only uses a few tablespoons of dark stain.  Our stain is leftover from our dining room table upcycle.  Stain (or paint) your wood according to the directions that came with your product.  Let dry really well.

Add the Snowflake

This wood snowflake was originally grey so I gave it a quick makeover using white chalk paint.  Of course, if you like your snowflake you can skip the painting. Let dry.

Glue the snowflake to the wood background.

Add the Saying

Print out the frosty’s first pic printable.  If you want to make one in a different size the font is  Daddy Longlegs font

Place the printable with the lettering facing outside on a window.  This will help you to see the backside of the print.  Trace the lettering with white chalk.

Place the printable chalk side down on to the wood surface and rub.  The chalk will transfer enough that you can see it. I then retrace it with chalk so I can see what I am doing.  It is possible you can skip this step.

    1. Hi Shirley. I am glad you like it. My taste is usually so different from this, but I love how it turned out and it was totally free.

    1. Thank you, Lauren. I did a rustic tree this year and had to scramble to come up with some matching decor ideas for the room.
