I can’t believe Christmas is only 10 days away. Are you ready? I am getting there… slowly. I have a few more gifts to buy and a few more projects I would like to complete in the next few days. But if the projects don’t happen, I’ll save them for next year :)
Last week, I showed off my first Christmas Vignette and today I’m showing you how you can make your very own 3D NOEL Sign!
This sign was 100% free for me! I’m all about repurposing items from around the house and this was another one of those creations.
– 5 1/2″ X 19″ Pieces of Scrap Plywood
– Styrofoam Cranberries
– Acrylic Paint
– Multi-Purpose Sealer
– Hot Glue Gun
Start by making a 50/50 mixture of Multi-Purpose Sealer and White Acrylic Paint. Apply 3 coats onto the plywood, allowing 30-60 minutes between each coat.
I used my Silhouette to create my NOEL stencil. My letters are about 4 1/2″ high and fill the space of the board.
Trace the letters onto the board and remove the stencil.
Using your hot glue gun, slowly add the Styrofoam cranberries to the board. I did one layer and then added a second to fill in the gaps and create another dimension.
And here is how my NOEL sign looks on my vignette! You can view the whole thing here.
You can also view more of my holiday projects here.

Love, love, LOVE this! I totally though they were real cranberries. I didn’t know you could buy a container of styrofoam ones. Pinning this to do for next year’s Christmas decor for sure!

Taryn, I LOVE that! It’s so beautiful and I love the red/white contrast!
Love this! Where did you get the Styrofoam cranberries from?
Jill Flory says
That is beautiful Taryn! And I am with you on your sentements about the families in Conneticut. I have to get back to normal everyday life – I just cannot dwell on it. Thanks for what you wrote about it and for posting as normal now.
It’s beautiful! Love the look of the cranberries. Gonna have to put this on my to-do list for next year, maybe a JOY or PEACE! Thanks for sharing.
This is so lovely – I love cranberries – just wish I could buy some faux cranberries so I could have a go at making this!
I would love to invite you to share this at my Cook, Craft, Create Link Party at The Purple Pumpkin Blog
Hope to see you there!
Happy holidays :)

Gah! I still love this so SO much!!
I saw this featured at Knockoff Decor and I love it so much! I always look at the before picture for a while and try to guess what the after picture will look like and this was totally unexpected! The font gives it a retro modern feel while the berries warm it up a little. It’s awesome. Something I’d definitely want on my mantel!
I just realized I saw this on Roadkill Rescue. Sorry. I can’t remember everything I looked at this morning. :-/

AHH! I love this so much! I’m pinning this. Really just such a simple but brilliant idea. Definitely going to try something like this next year. Merry Christmas!

Thanks for sharing this simple but fabulous idea! I love how you used the cranberries against white for a fresh, clean look. Will be pinning for next year!
