Light Up Christmas Lawn Sign made with Mod Podge

Santa and his reindeer have a loooong night ahead of them.  Why not make their visit to your house easier with a reserved parking spot?

Even better, why not have a light on your sign to help guide the way?

No doubt that Santa and his team will appreciate your efforts!

I used several Mod Podge goodies to make this fun lawn sign.  Read on to learn how you can make your own Christmas sign!


Supplies Needed:
Mod Podge Outdoor Formula
Dimensional Magic:  Regular and Gold Glitter
Folk Art Acrylic paints:  Christmas Red and Pure Gold
Wood sign (Dollar Tree)
Post (hardware store)
Tea Light
Small ornament
Velcro circles
Google eyes
Cardstock


To make your own reindeer parking sign:
  1. Paint your board, post, tea light, and ornament red.  
  2. Use Mod Podge (MP) outdoor formula to adhere paper to the sign.  Paint a border on it and seal with MP outdoor.
  3. Cut the reindeer out of cardstock.  I used my Silhouette and an image from their online store.
  4. Paint the antlers gold.  Apply Dimensional Magic to the antlers and letter stickers.
  5. Glue the ornament to the tea light.  Glue velcro circles to the light and the sign.
  6. Adhere stickers and reindeer to the sign with MP outdoor formula.  Glue on google eyes.
  7. Place the light up nose on the sign using velcro.



My kids were so cute when I was setting up to take these pictures.

"Why are you putting it in the ground?  It has to go on the roof!!"

I guess I need to get my ladder.
