Santa Stops Here- Address Street Sign

10 Materials
Easy
Every kid wants to be sure Santa doesn't miss their home on Christmas Eve!
Here's a cute, inexpensive, easy, and completely unique sign to let Santa know exactly where you are.


To begin- make sure all the parts you purchase for this project are made from real wood, NOT mdf.
First, you need wood numbers for your address.
Paint the numbers, make sure you cover the sides well.


Set them aside to dry.
You'll need three parts to create the sign.


A wood spindle, a piece of 1/4" thick plywood cut to the size you'd like, and a wood finial with a screw bottom.


Attach the plywood to the spindle, and screw the finial to the top.


Then spray paint the entire sign and allow it to dry.
Now it's time for the Chrsistmasy details.


Using craft paint, I painted the sign portion white, and added details to the spindle and finial.
Use paint pens to add your "Santa Stops Here" words. You can freehand them or trace them onto the board using carbon paper.
Now, attach the address numbers. I used wood glue for mine, and they've lasted for years with no problem.


I also covered the entire sing with a polyacrylic sealer, so that's probably helped them stay in place.


It also protects the wood from the outdoor elements.
Attach an inexpensive bow to the bottom, and you're finished!
Now, Santa will know exactly where to find the kiddos each Christmas!
