DIY Christmas Reindeer Sign

Super easy DIY reindeer sign! See how to make your own for your Christmas decor!

There are moments in our marriage where I really just sit back and realize that I married the most perfect man. These moments happen more often than not & one day a few weeks ago when we were living in our rental one of those moments happened again. I was sitting there doing something crafty & Mr. LMB started painting a piece of wood & I asked him what he was going to make & he replied ” A Christmas reindeer sign.” Oh, ok.. haha it was the most random thing, but I just thought it was the cutest thing in the world. To us, creating is therapeutic & I’m sure the move was stressing us out that day so painting & creating something new helps get things off our minds. When he was done with the sign it was one of my new favorite Christmas decorations so I just had to blog it & show you.

I already had the tags so it saved me money, & I think it turned out super cute. Just another little idea to decorate your trees if you were stumped like I was. Now, onto that cute little Christmas sign that Mr. LMB made.

Super easy DIY reindeer sign! See how to make your own for your Christmas decor! Making the sign was super easy & the hardest part was the placement of the words. First he came up with the idea to list all of the reindeer names. He found a scrap piece of plywood in our basement & stained it with a dark stain. He then printed out all of the reindeer names with the silhouette machine to create stencils. After the stencils were all printed he placed them all on the board in order & used a paint brush to paint over the stencils with white. When the paint was dry he ripped the stencils up & voila all the reindeer names were on the board. We added a red boarder & a red period after the “rudolph” name {sad that I didn’t get it in any of the pictures, but it made the sign super cute}. To hang the sign we used a 3M strip which worked great especially because we were renting at the time.

Sorry about the crappy cell phone photos of the sign being made, but hey when inspiration strikes there is not always time to take great photos. We chose to hang the sign in our living room in our rental above the side table. I can’t wait to hang this sign in our new Michigan house & show you it in our new home.

  1. Oh my goodness,. I just love this! It makes my heart happy that the hubby made it too! It looks lovely!

  2. Super cute! Was wondering what font you used? Thanks!

  3. Any tips to recreate this if one does not have a silhouette machine ?

    • Yah! You can find letter stickers at the craft store or the hardware store & use those to trace. Or you could print out the letters on paper & trace with a carbon paper under it. I hope this helps!! xx

  4. I love the projects my husband does around the house. That he is always thinking about what we need, or would like speaks volumes to me. He knows my love language involves a sander and a table saw 😉 I adore the sign and hope you enjoy it for many years to come!

  5. Wow, what a great project! Even more impressive that your husband did it.

    I have a little reindeer trivia for your husband. Originally, the names were Dunder and Blitzem; somewhere along the line, Dunder changed to Donder and them to Donner; Blitzem changed to Blitzen.

    So sometime over the next 100 years, he may have to repaint one or two of the names if they change again.

  6. So pretty, Liz! x

    Love the sign. What font did you use, if you remember. THanks

  8. Michelle says:

    I have a question about the stencil….what did you do with all of the inner pieces of the letters, such as e, a and d? Did you have to put them in manually after putting the stencil down on the wood?

  12. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
