Gone to the beach sign santa decor diy from My Eclectic Treasures

Supplies needed for this diy:

  • Thrifted wooden sign, canvas, or piece of scrap wood, etc
  • White paint and brush
  • Red felt
  • Black marker
  • Mini clothespins
  • Christmas greenery
  • Shells, driftwood pieces, sea glass, etc.
  • Gone to the beach vinyl decal
  • White chunky yarn
  • White pom pom
  • Scissors and hot glue
  • Staple gun (optional)

Step one: Prep your base

I used this thrifted clip board sign that I found at Goodwill. You could use a sign from the Dollar Tree and paint over it. A canvas or a piece of scrap wood would work, too. I’m just trying to use what I have. First I removed the sticker and the metal clip.

Then I sanded where I removed the clip.

Step two: Paint your base

First, I used an acrylic paint as a primer. I used two coats, letting it completely dry in between coats.

To complete the painting, I used a chalk paint to make sure that the writing was covered completely.

Step three: Draw and cut out your Santa suit

This is completely freehanded, so I don’t have a template for you, but you can do this. Try it on paper first, then draw it out on your felt. I drew one side of the Santa jacket first, then I folded over the felt, used pins to secure both layers, then cut out two sides.

Next, I drew some Santa pants.

See, they’re not perfect. Yours don’t have to be either.

Now, I needed a back to the Santa jacket, so I laid both sides down onto the felt and traced around them to create a “back”. Basically, it was a rectangle.

Last thing we drew and cut out was Santa’s hat. The hat is going to be draped over something, so I drew it like this.

Step four: Add your fur to your suit

The fur that I used was a chunky white yarn. I lined the jacket pieces and the bottom of the pants first.

Then I glued the pieces of the jacket together. Last, I added a white pom pom to the hat to finish it. Santa’s suit is ready.

Step five: Add your decal

I added the decal to the bottom of the sign, but you could add it wherever you like. If you would like this decal, get one >>HERE<<.

Step six: Build your sign

I used this piece of Christmas greenery as my clothesline for Santa’s suit, using miniature clothespins.

Then I added some beach elements on either side of my decal.

Using a staple gun, I attached the greenery clothesline to the sign.

Our last little detail was to add the hat to the small piece of driftwood.
