Adding coastal touches for Christmas in our home is something I like to do each year. Making this DIY Joy Sign and putting it with some coastal decor makes a pretty vignette in our sun room.

DIY Joy Sign and Coastal Christmas Decor
Putting this together was easy and there are a couple of ways it can be done. I used my Cricut to cut out the letters to use as a template for the garland, but you could also free hand them, or use sticker stencils.
Supply List for Coastal Joy Sign

I’m always finding ways to use those inexpensive thrift store signs that I often find at my local Goodwill. For this Joy sign, rather than painting it, I simply covered the writing on it with a piece of laminated burlap. I trimmed it to fit, leaving a little space on each side. I used spray adhesive to attach the burlap to the sign.
After making the templates using my Cricut for the J and Y, and attaching them to the burlap, I bent a piece of garland that I bought at Dollar Tree into a circle shape for the O and hot glued it in place.
To add to the coastal look, a small sea shell was glued to the garland.
I love this snowflake ribbon that I found at Dollar Tree. I used it for the scarves on my Melted Snowman craft, too. The ribbon is hot glued to the sign.
Using more of the Dollar Tree garland tie, I shaped it to cover the J and the Y on the sign. It’s also hot glued in place.
This was easy to put together and since I used Dollar Store items and a thrift store find, the cost was low, too!
I have a collection of Christmas Santas that I love displaying throughout the house during the holidays. This coastal Santa is a favorite. He’s sitting atop a small cabinet and the sign is above it on the wall.
Today, along with some of our blogging friends, we’re hosting a Happy Holidays Link Party. You’re invited to link up any crafts, diy projects, activities, recipes, and more that fall into a December holiday theme. The party is open from Nov 21- Dec 13. I hope you’ll join us!
