Today I’m sharing a DIY for a Christmas Lighted Wood Sign, and you can WATCH THE VIDEO HERE (the tutorial steps are detailed in the post below):
Supplies Needed (all of the supplies are from Hobby Lobby):
- Wooden Sign
- Acrylic Paint (white, navy and black)
- Metallic Paint (gold)
- Various Paint Brushes
- Battery-Operated Lights
- Glitter (gold)
- Painters Tape
- Glue Gun
- Printed Font (the free printable is shared later in this post)
To begin, paint the sign with navy acrylic paint.
Add white if you want the sky to be more dimensional (see video for how to do this).
Add glitter to the sky while the paint is still wet. Using the black paint, paint the landscape.
Paint the frame with the gold metallic paint.
Once all the paint is dry, it is time to add the lettering. I have two different versions of O Holy Night. One is horizontal like mine, and the other is a more vertical layout.

Run chalk against the back of the printed lettering (read more about my perfect chalkboard lettering technique here).
Tape the printed lettering to the sign using the painters tape.
Use a pen to trace the letters.
Once the letters are traced, paint over them with white acrylic paint. With the same small brush and white paint, add stars all over the sky. Keep in mind they shouldn’t be all evenly spaced – the night sky has star clusters.
Once the letters are dry, drill holes for the lights (make sure the drill bit is the correct size and drill from the outside in).
Once the holes are drilled, add the lights and glue the battery pack.
And the Christmas Lighted Wood Sign is done and ready to enjoy!
