I love making Christmas crafts. But here’s the thing, they’ve gotta be simple! The holidays are a crazy time of year for everyone and this year our life is crazier than normal.

Supplies for DIY joy sign with wreath on vintage window:
- Adhesive Shelf Liner/Contact Paper
- Silhouette Cameo
- Vintage Window
- Farmhouse Style Wreath (learn how to make this one)
- Small Command Hook
Step 1. Cut letters.
First, measure your window and determine how much space you have for the letters and wreath. You’ll only need to cut out letter for the J and Y because the O will be the wreath 🙂 ! Using a Silhouette Cameo cutter and adhesive shelf liner, cut the large J and Y. Here’s the settings that I used for mine:
- Font: Baskerville Old Face
- Size: Between 750-800 (I made the Y a little bigger because the J on this font was a little longer and I wanted them to be roughly the same height)
- Cameo Cut Settings: Vinyl (no other changes were made)
Step 2. Hang wreath.
Attach a Command hook in the top middle of the window and hang your wreath. You can buy a wreath (check out my favorite farmhouse wreaths from Etsy) or make your own (learn how I made my farmhouse style wreath).
Step 3. Attach letters.
Peel and stick the J on the left side of the wreath and Y on the right side of the wreath.
Seriously, guys…this Christmas DIY is just THAT simple. All you have to do is cut the letters, hang the wreath and attach the letters!
Can you believe that I found this window and a few others just like it in an alley way by someone’s trash?!? I used to love going “alley cating” when I lived in San Diego years ago. The alley ways of the beautiful Central Oregon just don’t compare, haha. If you don’t have a vintage window like this laying around, you could make a simple wood sign (or buy one like this, which is a little smaller than the window but the same general shape).
This DIY joy sign with wreath on vintage window is the perfect addition to your farmhouse Christmas decorations. Since it’s so simple to make, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t make it this year, right?!
