Start by adding a coat of gold paint on each of the letters.
Add a second coat right after the first and set aside to let the letters dry. TIP: Look for a metallic gold paint that is water-based for easier cleanup.
Paint the pallet sign with a coat of the white paint on both the front and the sides. Set aside to dry.
Remove the twine hanger from the metal snowflake. Add a piece of twine for hanging to the back of the candle ring. Wait to tie this until you locate on the sign. Remember you do not have to have both of these pieces or you can use another piece for the center of your sign.
If the letters and sign are not dry at this point, you can use a hairdryer to speed up the process. Also, the letters can be touched up after you have added them to the sign. Put the letters in place along with your largest centerpiece. Use the adhesive to glue the letters to the sign. Touch up any paint issues at this point on both the sign and letters.
Use a pencil to mark where the center piece should go on the sign.
Screw the hook into place on your mark.
Then you can hang the pieces from the hook.
At this point, use the hook location to determine the length of your twine on the wreath and tie.
You might have to use some hot glue to secure the wreath to the twine at the top so it will not lean too far when your sign is upright.
Once everything is dry, you can add this sign to your home decor or even porch. Remember that if you are making this Christmas joy sign for outdoors, you will want to paint all sides in order to protect the wood.
Everyone will love this Christmas joy sign! You might even need to make some to give as gifts!
