Made by: Danielle Hunter
Time: 1 hour (not including drying time)
Level: Beginner

Here’s what you need:

Letter-Latching, Paper-Patching, Santa-Gifts-Go-Here - Made with #GlueDots #DecoArt paint and #DCWV paper pieces.

Here's what you do:

Sand wood and wipe clean.

Apply a quick coat of black acrylic paint. Paint doesn't need to cover every part of the wood. Let dry.


Apply one coat of matte medium over entire piece of wood. Let dry.

Apply crackle paste to wood with mini spatula and paintbrush. Let dry.


Cut triangle shapes with teal (11.5 x 9.5 x 9.5"), red (5 x 4 x 4") and glitter (4 x 2.75 x 2.75") cardstock.

Cut a 9 x 4.5 x 7 x 4" trapezoid shape with glitter cardstock.

Create 4 circles using a punch or die cut and black cardstock.

Apply metallic lustre to edges of wood, paper shapes and letters using a paintbrush.


Cut cardboard to fit each cardstock shape and attach to the back of shapes with Advanced Strength Dots.

Use Advanced Strength Dots to attach shapes to the wood.


Apply corrugate and sticker letters to the wood sign using Mini Dots.  Mini Dots add extra adhesion to letter stickers.


  • Use different colored cardstock to match your holiday home decor.
  • For a more lightweight option, use thick cardboard instead of wood and hang with Glue Dots HybriBond Repositionable Mounting Tape.
