Easy Craft Projects a Primitive Candy Cane Sign

Today we are doing a very easy DIY project. I have seen these around, but why pay for one when you can make your own?!?

The making of a Primitive Candy Cane Sign for Christmas. I had seen for sale on the internet, but why not just make our own out of leftover wood, and paint we already have, so it cost us nothing but very little time! This is a very easy project taking up little time to finish. I hope you try it out for your Christmas decor, and let me know what you think!

We start with out piece of wood.


Next we base coat it with black.

We move on to painting the candy cane, and lettering.

Finally we have sanded it all, for the aged effect, and we are finished! Wasn't that easy?
