After our beadboard basement ceiling was finished, I had a bunch of pieces of scrap beadboard to use for crafts. I made some Fall signs, and now I have made a Christmas one! I hope you like how I did it, and that it inspires you.

What Can You Make with Leftover Beadboard?– how about a Beadboard Sign!

I was so happy to see these metal words available again at the Dollar Tree!!! I bought ten packs of them– and there are 3 in a pack for only One Dollar!!! They include the words Joy, Peace, and Believe.

Faith Inspired Projects

I started by using mod podge to adhere the top ply of a napkin to my beadboard. It was so easy to do!

[I have another JOY idea here!]
I used hot glue to add cording around the edge, drilled holes and knotted the cording for a hanger.

    The top edge looked unfinished so I applied gold glitter hot glue. It could just be painted white.

    It dried quickly, because it was hot glue.

    I also used hot glue to apply my metal word from the Dollar Tree. I thought that would work better this time than using my Xyron adhesive, because of the grooves in the beadboard. But for flat surfaces, I would just use Xyron.

    My sign turned out so cute!

    More Details

    I bought my words when they used to be available at the Dollar Tree. I haven’t found any at a store in awhile. Although you can order online from the Dollar Tree, if you do they have a minimum order of 4-25 pieces depending on the item. I could not find any words on their site at the time of this writing. I did find some on Etsy, though!

    These words are very popular with crafters and non-crafters alike, so I do hope the #dollartree brings them back soon!

    Cutting Beadboard

    If you need to cut beadboard for a sign, you can use a jigsaw. I like using ours for small jobs like this.

    I just love candles in pretty shapes, don’t you?! Whether they are pine tree shaped, pine cones, or super fancy carved candles, I love them all!

    Paper Plates

    Aren’t those Hark the Herald Angels Sing paper plates so pretty? I don’t think I can bear to eat on them!

    Pretty Napkins

    Tuesday Morning has a beautiful selection of paper napkins. You can also find seasonal ones at Hobby Lobby and even Walmart.

    Gold and White Cord

    I was blessed to get my white and gold cord given to me. But if you need some you can find it here.

    1. Absolutely adore your Joy Beadboard sign. I know a person can use any size board they want; but was just curious on size o9f your beadboard sign? Great way in using up them scraps of wood.

      Now, I just need to go through my napkin stash to see what I can come up with.
      Thank you
      Have a wonderful week end.

      1. Thank you so much, Colleen! I gave that sign away as a gift, but for a rough guess I would say it was about the size of piece of regular 8.5 x 11 paper— maybe a bit larger like 10 x 12 or so. I hope that helps!
