How to Style Your Christmas Signs
Main Feature in the Master Bedroom
I loved these printables so much that wanted to turn some of them into big signs for my wall. My friend Brittany at Currently Chic, made my vision of this printable come to life with this gorgeous sign.
I love to decorate for Christmas time by bringing the holiday atmosphere into bedrooms as well as the main rooms of the house. The mistletoe sign makes a great focal point to hang above the bed in my master bedroom. This Christmas room turned out amazing, complimenting my neutral bedroom with the perfect red accent color.

Children's Bedroom Art
Kids of all ages love a little Christmas decor in their bedrooms, mine included. My daughter's bedroom already looked festive and ready for Christmas day but I wanted to add just a little more for this special time of year. An easy way to do that is to add a Christmas sign.
Again, I had the amazing Brittany turn my DIY Christmas designs into a farmhouse style sign as well. I love that it isn't overwhelming, but still dainty and noticeable. These cute signs are adorable for the Christmas season.
Hanging wall art in a visible space so that it creates a unique focal point. Be careful when hanging signs above a bed and make sure they are secured to the wall if that is where your sign is.
Christmas Signs for the Entry
When it comes to greeting visitors to your home, there is nothing better than a big and welcoming Christmas sign right next to your front door. A festive sign like this one sets the stage for the mood of your home, especially surrounded by a forest of mini trees. You can also plan your decorative theme around it. So hang up a sign in your entryway to greet all of your guests with lively Merry Christmas vibes.
Exterior Christmas Sign Decor
And don't forget about your exterior. Make sure to include a fun Christmas display with your front porch sign to welcome friends and family. I love my rustic look reindeer sign that fit perfectly in the sitting nook on my front porch. I added mini trees with small Christmas lights to bring in some shimmer.
You can also place a fun sign right next to your front door like this sleigh rides Christmas sign. It is fun and vibrant with a bright pop of color to stand out. Check out other classy ideas for a Christmas porch here.
Christmas Signs Above Your Fireplace
A focal point above your mantel is always a nice visual appeal. This fireplace wall is quite large, so it is helpful to have a big sign that can take up a lot of space. This wooden board is the perfect focal point. And it makes this room feel so homey. I set it on top of the mantel and then accented with various strands of green garland, bead strands, berries and an ornament garland.
