DIY Craft Today – JOY Christmas Sign
I’m really trying to prepare this year for Christmas, before I know it, snow will be on the ground and carols being sung! I was sent a bunch of stunning holiday ribbon and I wanted to create this really fun JOY Christmas Sign!
I actually already had the letters, I used them taking photos of a family! Before Clay was born I did photography for families a little on the side. Nothing major just a fun little hobby!
It is quite early to fully be thinking of Christmas, I know! But, I had the ribbon, I was itching to do something so I did. I took pictures of it out, but I took it down and stored it with all my Christmas Decor. In a few months I will pull it out and decorate for real!
The fun thing about making this DIY Joy Christmas Sign is that you can get really creative when choosing your ribbon! You can get glitter, burlap, polka-dot, cute prints and more. Just use whatever will compliment your home and add some Christmas cheer!
If you end up with extra ribbon, you can always use it to make bows for your gifts this year!

Joy Christmas Sign
This craft is really easy to do, so here are the steps below on how to make this beautiful Christmas joy sign!
J and Y Letters (I used wood ones and painted them and added glitter)
Pins or Hot Glue Glun
First off if you have letters and you want to paint them, then do so. Spray paint works great. Mine I spray painted black, then took a good layer of modge podge and coated them, and sprinkled with glitter. Let dry, repeated till they reached how glittery I wanted. Then I spray painted a clear coat on them so the glitter wouldn’t fall off.
With your wreath, take your ribbon and secure it with either hot glue or a pin on the inside, like pictured above. Then start wrapping your ribbon tightly around the wreath. Once it is all wrapped just secure it with another pin on the inside so you can see it, or hot glue it.
And your done! Set your letters on a shelf, hang them on the wall, or do whatever you would like!
I wish I had a tutorial for my letters I painted and sparkled up, I just had them already done from years ago. I share in the steps how to do it, it was really easy! You can choose any colors you want, ribbon and such to fit your style! This is a very versatile craft, that is easy to do!
Stay tuned for more holiday crafts, that will be coming soon!
