Dress up your door with a wooden round Christmas sign. Follow my step-by-step tutorial to make a fun “gnome for the holidays” sign.
Have you seen all the fun round signs lately? They are a perfect alternative to a front door wreath. Easy to make and they store flat so you can make one for each season or holiday. Wooden round signs are great to give as gifts too. I made this “Gnome for the Holidays” round wooden Christmas sign for my front door this year and today I’m going to show you how to make your very own.

- Paint the round wooden sign with a coat of paint. Let dry. You can also stain the wood if you don’t want to paint it.
- Cut out the SVG file using either a Silhouette or Cricut. If using a Silhouette, follow this cut by color tutorial to cut out the pieces.
- After the file is cut, weed the design.
- Use transfer tape to apply the gnome design to the round sign.
- Create a loop with the ribbon and attach it to the back of the wooden sign with hot glue for hanging. Glue a bow and branches to the top of the sign.
